Here are 21 signs of stress. Look through the list to help you uncover areas in your life where stress is stealing the vital energies you need to be a quietly happy, inwardly whole human being. Study the list closely. Ask yourself if the character or daily condition describes you in any way, and if so, then give yourself one point for every “Yes, that’s true about me, or my life” that you find. Honesty is essential.
