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

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.

    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…
