Here are the Stress Management Test Answers. We hope that results of this stress test will allow you to manage stress better…
Question 1. A person who is nervous about talking in front of a group is suffering what kind of stress?
Answer. Psychological, because the cause of this stress is mental; the person is afraid he/she may stutter, forget the words, etc. Problems are anticipated, but they have not actually occurred.
Question 2. Why do some people view stressful events as challenges while others fear stressful events?
Answer. Three reasons for different reactions to stress are a person’s attitude, perception, and skills for managing stress. If your attitude toward life is positive, then stress may be seen as a challenge and not a problem. Past experiences and the skills you feel you have to meet life’s demands will affect the degree of stress you experience.
Question 3. Why is improving one’s lifestyle important for stress management?
Answer. It is estimated that as many as 7 of the 10 leading causes of death could be reduced through common sense changes in lifestyle. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, 83 percent of all deaths of adults between ages of 21 and 65 are related to lifestyle.
Question 4. What are some common symptoms of stress?
Answer. Physical discomfort (headaches, insomnia, muscle tics, digestive upsets), emotional discomfort (bad temper, mood swings, crying spells, nervousness), mental confusion (forgetfulness, boredom, poor concentration), and relationships (loneliness, nagging, staying away from others).
Question 5. There is no way to be completely rid of stress. Improving your life and health provides the physical and emotional strength to cope with the inevitable stresses of life. What are some ways you can revamp your health and life to manage stress?
Answer. Exercise (walking, jogging, swimming, sports), sensible eating habits, recreation and hobbies, relaxation, reaching out to family and friends for support.
How well did you do? As discussed in the previous sections, there are many things that you can do to control and minimise the impact that stress has on the quality of your life.
One of the most powerful techniques available for reducing stress and anxiety is also one of the easiest to learn and the simplest to practice – Vedic Meditation.

When we are under stress our bodies are functioning in survival mode (fight, flight or freeze)
Our immune system weakens, we tend to be more reactive (rather than responsive), more guarded, defensive (crying over spilt milk), and most importantly – our quality of life, our life satisfaction is lowered.
Vedic Meditation is one of the most powerful techniques available for reducing stress and anxiety. That means that you no longer store as much stress and tension in your body and start responding to life with a positive attitude – relaxed, resilient and care-free. It is also one of the easiest to learn and simplest to practice.
