How do I know if my stress level is too high?

What is stress?: Some think of "stress" as challenging or negative life events. Others think of "stress" as anxiety or a distressing experience. My opinion is that your anxiety level is too high if you're feeling overwhelmed for longer than short periods here and there. Generally, people can cope with challenges (sometimes very difficult challenges) without feeling chronically overwhelmed.

Burnout: You know you have too much work stress when you dread going to work, derive little or no satisfaction at work, are irritable with or withdrawn from coworkers, are fantasizing or planning to find another job, your work productivity slips due to presenteeism(you are present but not productive) and absenteeism increases. This should not be due to an untreated mental or physical illness.
