Millennials Experiencing More Stress than All Other Adults

YouTube

Hey Millennials, you look a little stressed.

Oh, they’re stressed, all right, judging by a Harris Interactive poll released Thursday of more than 2,000 Americans 18 and older. It was conducted for the American Psychological Association.

People 18-to-33-years-old, otherwise known as the Millennial generation, have a stress level of 5.4 out of a scale of ten with one being the lowest and ten meaning “a great deal of stress.” The average for all age groups is 4.9.

On top of that, 39 percent of Millennials say their stress level has risen over the past year with just over half admitting that their concerns have kept them up worrying at night during the past month.

So what’s bugging the nation’s young people? Plenty, according to one market researcher, who says the still soft job market combined with high expectations and a feeling of self-importance are stressing out Millennials.

The top source of stress for Millennials is work, followed by money worries, relationships, the economy and family responsibilities.

Even more troubling is that stress can lead to other problems such as depression and anxiety. In fact, 19 percent of Millennials reported bouts of depression, higher than Generation Xers, Baby Boomers and Americans 67 and older.
