How often does this happen to you – You try to sit back and relax but your thoughts keep going back to all the things you have to do, all the obligations you have? This usually happens whenever you’re overwhelmed with work, and you just can’t shake the feeling that you won’t get anything done, which further makes you feeling stressed and under pressure.
Are you stressed out right now? How stressed are you? Are you “I need a vacation” stressed or “I need to go to the hospital” stressed? This is a way for you to find out in 5 seconds, thus avoiding a time consuming visit the doctor. Of course, this is all in good fun.
