One way to measure stress is with the 0 to 10 scale, similar to a pain scale, with 0 meaning no stress and 10 when we are ready to blow. If this scale does not work for us, we can try measuring our stress by rating it as high/medium/low, pleasant/neutral/unpleasant, or red flag/green flag. We can play with this until we find a a way to measure that works for us. We measure our coping in the same way by checking our stress levels before and after we cope. How aware are you of your stress and coping? What would be a good way for you to measure them?
