Stress Quiz

At Cigna, we see stress differently. And you can too. Take this stress quiz to see your own stress “visualized.” Then create a stress PLAN tailored to help control your level of stress.

This quiz is based on the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), one of the most widely used psychological instruments for measuring the perception of stress.*
