A staggering 73 per cent of Aussies suffer from workplace stress, according to a survey commissioned by workplace think-tank Reventure.

Given that the workplace is somewhere we spend the better part of our waking hours, an unhealthy job or work culture can severely impact long-term mental wellbeing.

And although it’s become more socially acceptable to discuss mental health, expectations to perform well at work can see employees ignore the warning signs about their own stress levels.

This flow chart by UK-based finance management website Pound Place, which draws on data from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, takes into account factors such as sleep quality and how you handle deadlines to help you determine how stressed you are.

It also asks about your social life, your drinking habits and your appetite, as well as how comfortable you feel expressing your emotions.

Based on what aligns best with your responses, you’ll fall into one of the following categories: ‘very stressed’, ‘stressed’, ‘a little stressed’ or ‘calm’.
