203. The Citadels of Stress

I was reading an article called Stress and Your Health on a site called bestpsychologydegrees.org. and found interesting information on the most likely places and situations that embrace stress like no other.

The number one cause of stress is your job, followed closely by money,  health, and relationships.

The most stressful job in the United States in 2013 is being an enlisted person in the military, followed by military generals, firefighters, commercial airline pilots, and public relations executives.

The most stressful countries, in order, are South Africa, the United States, Australia, Southern Cyprus, and Canada.

The most stressful cities in the United States, in order,  are Hartford, Connecticut; Newark, New Jersey; Brownsville, Texas; Miami; and Buffalo, New York.

Next Tuesday’s blog will be ten ways to reduce stress, from the same site.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.

    Silverbells,
    The site was a compilation of statistics without explanation. Jobs can have have money problems associated with them also, such as reorganizations that may result in your losing a job. So now jobs are a triple whammy.

  2. Interesting! Did the site explain why these places were the most stressful?
    I guess jobs can be stressful because of relationships, too, so a double whammy…
