If you have high hopes for 2011 and have every intention of making it your greatest year yet, you're probably not among the increasing number of people who say their stress levels are through the roof right now.
Not just that, but it's as if stress is almost becoming the norm, with almost half of everyone quizzed claiming they are under more than moderate stress.
The survey polled 2,000 people in the UK, and according to the Stroke Association its findings are a cause for concern. That's because experts claim stress raises your blood pressure, and that increases your risk of having a stroke - whatever your age.
The survey also discovered that many people don't do enough exercise. Around a fifth of those involved in the survey said they take no exercise at all, with another 20 of Brits don't realise there's a link between exercise and stroke). Many researchers also believe exercise helps reduce stress.
Do you think stress is as widespread as this survey suggests? How stressed do you feel right now?
