Mostly A: You got CODE YELLOW
While in reasonable shape, you are certainly dedicating more time to day-dreaming about holidays than usual. To ensure your everyday life doesn’t take a turn for the worse, treat yourself to a short break. This way, you’ll feel revitalised and refreshed and ready to fend off the threat of daily challenges when they try to slap you in the face.
Mostly B: You got CODE ORANGE
You are more snappy and sarcastic than usual and the winter blues have clearly gotten the better of you. All that’s required to return to your normal self are a few days away. Take the time to relax and you’ll surely return to your routine with a more positive approach and a fresh outlook.
Mostly C: You got CODE RED
Wow! That blood pressure is far too high. You’re more overdue for a rest than the average queen bee. Not only are you in desperate need of a break but it’s so bad that those around you require a holiday, too. Take time off and you’ll be a new person in no time. In fact, your friends and colleagues won’t even recognise you.
