future, copy the number in the score column. If the event has occurred or is expected to occur

 

more than once, multiply this number by the frequency of the event. Scoring The Life Change Index

stimuli which affects the body, or the reordering of important routines that the body

 

become used to, can cause needless stress, throwing your whole physical being into

 

turmoil.
