Ah, no, then. I'm completely unfamiliar with them. It's kind of an interesting idea, but at the same time I think I'd start getting stressed about tracking my stress levels, LOL. I just try to do things that I know reduce stress in my life--things like getting enough sleep, taking time out for me, exercise, etc. I figure those are quantifiable. And some of the effects of stress are certainly at least somewhat quantifiable, or at least observable--things like not sleeping well, high blood pressure, forgetting things, weight gain when I should be losing, etc.

By stress tracker, I mean something like a watch or a bracelet or some other wearable that measures stress levels. I just saw this article so I was just wondering if anyone in this group had any experience with using one or trying one out esngent.be/using-stress-trackers-co

Quick quote from article:
"But chronic stress continues to be an epidemic problem in our society. What prevents us from reducing stress?

Itís simple: Youíre trying to manage something thatís not quantifiable. You have to somehow estimate your own feelings. Weíre not great at gauging how we feel in real time, either over-reacting or under-reacting. Measuring emotions is the simplest solution because it takes our flawed judgement out of the equation, but is that even possible?"

I'm not sure what you mean by stress tackers, unless you mean the place where you track you stress day to day. I have done some, but never consistently.

Hi, does anyone here use stress trackers or any other stress measurement tools to help their stress management?
