This is not a diagnostic tool, as it is only meant to help you check in with yourself and identify areas of your health that need your attention.

Aside from item 9 and 14, answering ‘yes” to most of the questions could potentially be a sign that you are feeling overwhelmed and close to exhaustion.

As always, consult a healthcare professional if you feel overwhelmed.
