pressure-performance-curve-400x300Here’s a quick test to deter­mine your stress lev­el.  Read the fol­low­ing descrip­tion com­pletely before look­ing at the pic­ture linked below.

The pic­ture 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 essen­tial­ly iden­ti­cal. A close­ly mon­i­tored, sci­en­tific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dol­phins are so sim­i­lar, a per­son under stress would find many dif­fer­ences between the two dol­phins. The more dif­fer­ences a per­son finds between the dol­phins, the more stress that per­son is expe­ri­enc­ing.

Look at the image and, if you find more than one or two dif­fer­ences, you may want to enjoy a real­ly relax­ing week­end…
