Return to Work Stress Test
Sir Roger has been doing a little scientific reading over the break and noticed something that he thinks is very relevant to all of us and could help everyone do our jobs better and enjoy them more.
Amazingly enough, scientific studies show that many of us experience our highest stress levels immediately before we return to work from the holidays that we’ve taken in order to reduce our stress levels in the first place!
So it’s quite likely that your own are dangerously high right now in anticipation of your imminent return to work and you need to take swift action to lower them.
Here’s a clever little test Sir Roger found that will help you decide what you need to do next:
This quick test will accurately determine your stress levels.
Read the following description completely before looking at the picture.
The picture below was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary’s Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water.
The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences between the two dolphins.
The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing.
Look at the photograph, and if you find more than one or two differences, you may want to request additional days off, or at least get a massage.
breathe in and out slowly and regularly…
centre your mind and calm your thoughts…
Prepare you brain to be able to notice
any very subtle differences…
When you are ready,
