Quiz: How's Your Financial Health?

Evidence of financial turmoil abounds—it seems like every day there's news of a stock market plunge, a new bank in crisis, or another reason to fear recession. At times like this, it's important to take stock of your own personal financial health—not just what's in your bank account, but also how your finances are influencing your physical and mental well-being. There's good reason to think that your financial life has a big impact on your health: a recent survey by the American Psychological Association, for example, found that money is the top stressor for American adults, and close to 60 percent of adults credit money and work with their stress level. Are you letting financial stressors get the better of you? Take this quiz to find out how your mind and your money interact—and what you can do to maintain your financial security and your personal stability at the same time.
