These Are Some Of The Most Stressful Things In Life

As we told you, a recent study revealed that stress levels were at a record high last year. And while most of that stress was likely due to the pandemic, it’s no secret that there are a lot of other things that cause stress in people’s every day lives. 

A new UK survey, which could easily translate here, finds:

  • Stress is so traumatic to people, that 72% will do whatever they can to avoid stressful situations.
  • Half will deliberately put off things that cause them stress, especially if they are already feeling anxious.
  • Some of the biggest side effects of stress include lack of sleep (45%), and struggling to concentrate (36%).
  • So, what are the most common things people stress out about?
  • The Top 10 include (click here for the complete list):

      4. Running late

      6. Forgetting something important you had to do
      7. Not being able to get to sleep
      8. A disagreement with a partner
