Americans Stressed Out More

posted by Kat - 

A new Gallup poll finds that 79% of Americans admit they are “frequently” or sometimes” stressedOnly 21% of people say they are “rarely” or never” stressed.

Work and kids seem to be the main causes of stress because parents and those who are employed report being more stressed out than those who don’t fall into those categories. The holiday season can certainly be stressful for some people, but it turns out the holidays aren’t the only time Americans feel stress. 

A new Gallup poll finds that 79% of Americans admit they are “frequently” (44%) or sometimes” (35%) stressed, while only 21% say they are “rarely” (17%) or never” stressed (4%)Interestingly, lack of time to get things done isn’t necessarily what’s stressing people out. In fact, only 41% of people say there isn’t enough time in the day for them to get things done, while 59% say they have plenty of time.So what is stressing people out? 

Apparently work and kids, because parents and those who are employed report being more stressed than those who don’t fall into those categories. Truth is, people who are 50 and older, and specifically those 65 and older, are more likely to say they don’t feel stress than younger generations.
