New Yorkers are High Stress! In the Top 10 Nationally, In Fact
Chill out! Or not- it's up to you.
Either way, New York landed on a list of the most stressed out states nationally. Newyorkupstate.com posted a list of the most stressed states based on census data. Shocker! New York was Number 5 (our neighbor New Jersey was the number one most stressed out state). Reasons for being so stressed? All legitimate things discussed by newyorkupstate.com, including commute time to work, stress of being on time, and high cost of living. In fact, they noted that New Yorkers on average have a longer commute to work than any other state. Sure, New York City can skew some of this data, but I'd say this is pretty true for a lot of people I know upstate. So no surprise here- working life isn't easy in New York!
