Wyoming One of the Top States for Low Stress
Stress is a huge health concern in the U.S. these days! So, it's nice to get word that Wyoming ranks towards the top of the list when it comes to being one of the least stressed out states.
A real estate website called Movoto just did a study on the most stressed out states in the country and Florida is ranked at number one.
The rankings are based on six factors: Percentage of people with a commute over 20 minutes, the unemployment rate, hours worked, population density, percentage of income spent on housing, and percentage of people without health insurance.
The top 10 most stressed states are: Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, California, Nevada, Illinois, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, and Arizona.
On the other end, North Dakota was least stressed state. The rest of the top 10 least stressed states are: Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Vermont, Wyoming, Montana, Maine, and Utah.
The Wyoming lifestyle ranks extremely well on all of the low stress criteria with the exception of weather, much like North Dakota. But Wyoming is best touted as a state with lots of wild places and great outdoor experiences much like our Wyoming tourism ads portray.
