Support: Dealing with Stress in the Workplace

Dr. Rahe's Life Changes Stress Test [2.10.2f 7]

Psychiatrists Thomas Holmes and Richard Rahe studies stress and its impact on health, they identified 42 life events, called Life Change Units (LCU) that provoke stress, and provided a different “weight” for each event; the more LCU events in your life the higher the stress.
