LIFE STESS AND HEALTH
Go to this site (http://openstaxcollege.org/l/SRRS) to complete the SRRS scale and determine the total number of LCUs you have experienced over the last year.
Once you have completed the stress test, you will receive a score and some suggestions that you can use to mediate your stress level. Please use your critical thinking skills to analyze the findings of your stress test. Discuss your impressions of the accuracy of the stress test, given your personal life situation.

Your assignment will go through Turnitin, and must be uploaded as a .doc or.docx file.
