The Most and Least Stressed States in the Country

 I’m not sure we should turn stress into a COMPETITION, but here ya go.

 

The website WalletHub.com just released the results of a study where they ranked every state from the most stressed to the least. 

 

 

They used 38 different factors to cover basically everything that could stress us out, including commute times . . . unemployment rates . . . debt . . . divorce rates . . . childcare costs . . . depression rates . . . and crime rates.

  3. West Virginia
  4. Mississippi 
  5. Nevada
  6. Arkansas
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Alabama
  9. Kentucky
