There's no quick-fix cure for stress, but there are simple things you can do to help you stress less.

These include relaxing, exercise, eating a healthy and balanced diet and talking to someone.

Remember, you don't have to suffer alone and a good place to start is to talk to your GP.

Check your mood

We all expect to get a cold or sore throat from time to time but when it comes to the way we feel emotionally, it can be hard to recognise or admit that we're not feeling 100 per cent.

This questionnaire is designed to recommend some excellent resources to help you better understand how you feel. You should answer based on how you've been feeling over the last two weeks.

You may find that your mood usually goes both up and down, so use this questionnaire to monitor it over time but remember, it is not intended to replace a consultation with a GP if you are struggling.
