Feeling Stressed Out and Overwhelmed?

Are you trying to find some semblance of work-life balance* and juggling multiple responsibilities all day every day? Take our quiz to discover if an overtaxed “bandwidth” is contributing to your stress!

“Bandwidth” refers to our unique cognitive, physical, psychological, and emotional capacity to function in various roles in our lives. When demands exceed our personal bandwidth, we are likely to feel overwhelmed, out of control, and stressed.

*By the way, we believe work-life balance is a myth, a fictional creature that doesn’t exist in real life!
