40-84: A score in this range suggests that your self-care skills and lifestyle balance strategies may be average, and that you could possibly benefit from developing a plan to improve your self-care, especially if you have more than average stress.
85-119: A score in this range suggests that you may have good self-care skills and lifestyle balance strategies in place, but could benefit from preparing for times of high stress by adding some additional practices.
