This Is the Number One Source of Stress in America

Money is the top source of stress in our lives, beating out work, family responsibilities, and health concerns. That’s according to the new Stress In America survey, conducted by Harris Poll for the American Psychological Association.

This news isn’t super shocking—money has been the top stressor since the APA started conducting its annual survey in 2007. But this year’s results show that our money worries could also be harming our health. One in five say they’ve skipped or considered skipping a visit to the doctor when they needed health care in the past year because of financial factors. And almost a third (32%) say that lack of money prevents them from living a healthy lifestyle.

Anything you worship outside of God will cause you stress.

God and religion can be a big source of stress. But I agree a lack of a survivable amount of money is a serious matter.

Get rid of the stress by accepting that you can't have everything that you want. Priorities. I see people money stressed because they live outside their means. Happiness does not come from material gain.
