My first book, "High Level Wellness: An Alternative to Doctors, Drugs and Diseases" (Rodale, 1977), contained a chapter on stress. It was a short stress test or self-assessment. Nearly 35 years have passed since I wrote this and I developed a scoring system to interpret it. The purpose of this exercise is to detect the scope of factors that may be potential stress. Too much stressfulness that can not be treated well can cause health and other problems from misery to destruction. My own stress test, self-evaluation tool, is a self-reporting tool for personal insights. This, of course, is not a technical test. Unlike a real test, this does not apply criterion or otherwise according to strict scientific standards.
There are a number of books on stress phenomenon. This is a popular term in our culture and special attention is paid to the various workplace health promotion programs. People have a great deal of difference between people in responding to different circumstances and treating stressors at different times. Which emphasizes that he will be happy to me and vice versa. People are endured and suffer stress in their lives. Any test that has attracted consciousness and thus results in less suffering and growth seems to be good.
My little wellness stress test is an awareness-raising, self-evaluating life satisfaction survey. I would like to help readers integrate or supplement their wellness mindset and lifestyles. This helps you evaluate many important areas of life. I want everyone to enjoy the process of stress factors as much as possible. Stress can be severe if it is present in the excess. Anyone working in an individual's wellness environment can follow self-evaluation and interpretation as a helper, which can be helpful in mapping questions and concerns, even more towards the goal of positive solutions.
The old 1977 Ardell Wellness Stress Test is still popular today, especially in university wellness centers and health training courses. In addition, I still get permission to reproduce the tests in books and brochures. So, an update seems timely. After all, what are the chances that the events and circumstances of the '70s still emphasize people today? However, I must admit that most of the factors listed are general, not age-related (such as workplace and career tensions). So most of the original examination questions must continue, especially by touching a bit, considering that I have learned one or two things in the intervening decades. I would like at least to think that in 2011 I know more about REAL wellness than in 1976 when I wrote "High Level Wellness". This fact alone prompted this update.
The "Ardell Wellness Stress Test" now and then includes the social aspects of physical, mental, emotional, "mental" (meaning and purpose) and health. This is one reason why many users report that they find the test useful – it offers a balanced assessment of the various stress sources. In this updated version, I keep this wide circle. I keep the scoring system as well. I suggest that you print this test to allow the answer or numeric marking for each of the 25 topics. Like the original version, I recommend a six-point scale and a neutral choice that does not signal positive or negative emotions to the element.
Here is the application of the rating scale as you read it and take into account the individual factors in the 25 question evaluations. Simply share your satisfaction in positive or negative degrees for each item
* Enter "+3" if your position, that is, your satisfaction that your life is currently going according to the listed categories, is "overflowing into the ecstasy"
* Enter "+2" if you have the satisfaction in the category: "You are so glad you will be satisfied".
* Enter "+1" if the satisfaction is "OK to be slightly satisfied".
* Enter "0" if the most accurate sense is "not sure" is "no problem".
* Enter "-1" "slightly disappointed" to "not quite right".
* Enter "-2" if the best answer is "very disappointed" to "very unhappy."
on the question "I am on the way to Noway" that "I think I want to go over a rock".
Use this scoring system to enter a number to the left of the factors to make positive or negative stresses. If you've completed all 25, please add your score and read my stress. After that, of course, we offer a REAL wellness mindset / lifestyle, no matter how good (good) or low (time reorganized) your score on this stress test.
