America’s Most Stressed—and Most Chill—Cities
Stop the complaining, Colorado is not in the top “stressed” states! How do they calculate this? The Realtor.com data team pulled together a list of 11 metrics that they think give a pretty good indication.
- Housing affordability, signaled by price-to-income ratio
- Average hours of sleep
- Average work hours
- Percentage of people who commute more than 45 minutes to work
- Unemployment rate
- Percentage of people who live below the poverty line
- Divorce rate
- Number of yoga and meditation centers per capita
- Percentage of people in “poor” or “fair” health (46% of Americans cite health concerns as a leading cause of stress)
- Percentage of people who don’t think “having as much fun as possible” is important, according to a 2016 Nielsen poll.
Although I’m sure that every point could be debated, the bottom line is that we in Colorado are pretty blessed to call this incredible state home! The article does finish up by saying the #1 stress free city to live is Fargo, ND. Come on, then you wouldn’t have the Broncos are #1 “stressor”! Call me, let’s go find that new “stress free home”!
