$\large \text{Assessment :-}$ $\text{Total score 90-125}$ Your score indicates that you are of a somewhat overly anxious nature who finds it very difficult to relax completely, and you are constantly on your toes for any unforeseen event that may occur. You also have the tendency to build many things up in your own mind out of all proportion. As this is in your nature and possibly the way by which you deal with things and cope with pressure, it is nevertheless important to try and adopt a more relaxed attitude to life, since anxiety does lead to stress and stress is the cause of many serious health problems.

It is necessary sometimes for overly anxious people to make a concerted effort to relax more, and one way of doing this may be by cultivating new interests and by taking one step back and reflecting on their life and its positive aspects. In times of extreme anxiety, it may be necessary to try and temporarily switch off completely from your daily routine and try to relax and chill out completely for a few days by doing something you really enjoy, whether it be lazing around the garden, listening to music, having a few rounds of golf or spending quality time with friends and family. This may well enable you to get things into perspective and help you cultivate a more relaxed attitude to life.

It is also important to all of us, but especially overly anxious people, that we are able to recognise any early warning signs that we are pushing ourselves too far. Then we can try to do something about it before it is too late. $\text{Total score 65-89}$ You are in the fortunate position that although, like all people, you find yourself stressed out to a certain degree from time to time, this tends to be the exception rather than the rule. Anxiety for you is no more of a problem than it is for the average person.Generally you appear to be a well-balanced person who is able to face up to problems as they arise and does not spend too much time worrying about things that may never happen. You also appear to have sufficient resolve to face up to any stressful situations that may occur in the future.

You are able to recognise any early warning signs that you may be pushing yourself too hard and, on these occasions, are able to do something about this by switching off somewhat and slowing down a little. $\text{Total score less than 65}$ Whilst you do worry on occasions, as do all of us, you appear to have a laid-back, relaxed attitude to life, with the result that high anxiety is less of a problem for you than it is for the average person.This attitude can have a calming influence, not just on yourself but also on those around you. One word of caution to having an almost totally relaxed attitude to life is believing that problems will never occur.

We all have to face up to numerous problems in our lifetime. Often, if we are able to anticipate such problems, we are able to minimise or even avoid them. Consequently, on occasions, a degree of forward planning is desirable.You should therefore have the ability to plan ahead and also build in a leeway for the unexpected.

It is also worth bearing in mind that a certain amount of tension is positive. People often respond to, and are encouraged by, challenges.
