MEASURING YOUR STRESS LEVEL

 
If you've been wondering what degree of stress you live under,

here is a quick way to get a fair estimate. Dr. Thomas and Dr.

Richard Rahe composed a table of events and the amount of stress

they cause. The most interesting feature of this table is that

the people they interviewed actually told them, how they could

rate specific events for the stress they cause, so this is human

rather than a medical appraisal of the degree of stress those

events caused  As you get used to certain changes in your life,

they become less stressful, so these ratings will not be

entirely accurate for you. If, for example, you take a vacation

only every five years, you might rate it a 25 instead of a 13.

The common starting point used was a standard rate of 50 for

marriage for all the people interviewed.

The combined total of both positive and negative stresses in the

past few months will give you an idea of your current stress

level. Keep in mind that people have varying stress-handling

capacities and this table does not take into account such

regular stresses as recreational drug use, alcoholism, chronic

illness, allergy, battering and random stresses such as car

accidents, contest winning to the dreaded tax audit. This is

presented as information only and should not be used for

diagnostic or treatment purposes.
