Stress you? Do not know. If you are one of the serene people in all situations, on vacation, you let go completely. No way to worry about a rainy day, a train delay or an Airbnb cancellation. Be careful, however, not to be too surprised by events, or to fall into boredom. Cultivate the “good” stress, those little adrenaline rushes that will help you get out of the routine. Even if it's just to test an unfamiliar beach or taste oysters for the first time! .
You have a maximum of B answers
Your stress level is high. You like to keep control, you are a master in the art of planning, at the risk of forgetting the present moment. If there is one time in the year when you can let go, it's now. Take advantage of the holidays to cut yourself off from your daily routine and perhaps introduce yourself to new rituals: digital detox, 10 minutes of meditation in the morning, a few drops of CBD… You will come back calm and ready for the start of the school year!
You have a maximum of C answers
Neither too much nor not enough. Yes, there are times when you are stressed. Sometimes it boosts you, sometimes it undermines you. In summer, you know how to let go to better recharge your batteries. Stay positive, breathe out, do not dramatize. Accept the unforeseen, know how to deal with and above all: take advantage. How about doing this all year round?
