Some people handle stress better than others.
And looks like some Georgians might need some help.
WalletHub, a personal finance site, sought the Most and Least Stressed Cities in America, revealing its 2021 ranking on Monday (July 12).
Three Georgia cities made the list, which spans more than 180 cities nationwide.
WalletHub’s report reads:
“Stress is not always a bad thing, though. Certain kinds of stress can have positive effects on a person’s well-being, at least in the right doses…When stress reaches an unmanageable level, however, it turns ‘chronic.’ That’s when we become vulnerable to its damaging effects such as health problems and loss of productivity.”
Researchers compiled the 2021 Most and Least Stressed Cities in America rankings by examining more than 180 cities. They used 41 “key metrics,” including average weekly work hours, divorce and more.
