Pennsylvania and New Jersey rank among the most stressed states in America. I’m shocked! While there are a myriad of things that can cause stress, according to WalletHub, issues as well as stress levels vary from state to state.
Everyone feels stress from time to time. Anything from everyday responsibilities like work and family to serious life events such as divorce, a new health diagnosis, or the death of a loved one can trigger stress.
Sure, stress can be a good thing. It can help you stay alert and motivated in dangerous or challenging situations. However, when you feel stressed all the time, it can harm your health. Stress can lead to problems such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and headaches.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by stress, it is important to seek help. If you live in Pennsylvania or New Jersey it certainly doesn’t mean you need to move. Maybe just making small lifestyle changes can help with your stress levels.
There are many resources available to help people manage stress, including therapy, medication, and support groups. Look through the lists below for common causes of stress as well as little things you can do to alleviate stress in your life.
