While we all face different kinds of stress, too much stress or continued stress over a long period of time can have serious negative effects on your mental and physical health. Use the results to decide if you need to see a doctor or other mental health professional to further discuss your stress and anxiety levels. Relaxation techniques for relief of stress and anxiety may also be helpful.
