In the modern world, stress is an integral part of every person’s life. Short-term stress is often beneficial for the body, helping it to activate and wake up, but if the action of the stressor is repeated or prolonged, the stress becomes chronic and causes damage to the body at the level of various organ systems. This work is devoted to methods of measuring chronic stress, the accuracy of which is often a controversial issue among scientists due to the multidimensional and ambiguous nature of stress. In addition to the severity, intensity, and duration of the stressors, the degree of impact of stress is also determined by the person’s psychological state. Therefore, the measurement of chronic stress is carried out by objective and subjective measurements.
