Break out the tiny violin: Majority of millennials feel that life is more stressful now than ever before

Disconnect from the iPhone, Internet or social media is one of their biggest gripes. Oh the horror!

From Daily Mail: A majority (58 percent) of Millennials feel that life is more stressful now than ever before, according to a new survey.

In addition, one-third of Millennials believe their lives are more stressful than the average person’s, according to the survey by OnePoll on behalf of Endoca, a CBD oil company.

For Millennials, the source of tension is typically a myriad of small stressors – phone batteries dying, being stuck in traffic or long waits for appointments – that add up to big anxiety over time, according to the survey of 2,000 Americans ages 22-37.

‘Stress isn’t an abstract issue — it’s a significant problem and doesn’t necessarily have to be caused by one large inciting incident,’ said Henry Vincenty, CEO of Endoca. ‘No matter what’s causing our stress, we should take care to be proactive about finding solutions before it begins affecting our health.’

Half of Millennials cited losing a wallet or credit card as the most stressful life event, followed by 48 percent each who were overwhelmed from arguing with a partner and traffic delays.

Losing a phone ranked fourth at 44 percent, followed by arriving late to work (43 percent), slow WiFi (42 percent) and a dead phone battery (40 percent).

In addition, 39 percent feared forgetting their passwords, while 38 percent each were stressed over credit card fraud and forgetting a phone charger (they start to get anxious when their phone hits 23 percent).

Other modern-day stressors also came into play: nearly 20 percent of Millennials said that getting zero likes on a social media post would cause them more stress than having an argument with their significant other.

Arriving first a party is more stressful than a job interview for 22 percent of Millennials. And going through with plans is more stressful than missing out on them for 35 percent of Millennials.

Americans lose nearly six hours a sleep each week due to stress – which adds up to 12 days per year.

Millennials said they lost sleep nearly three nights a week – or 138 nights a year – to stress.

Ironically, a plurality (41 percent) of Millennials said they cope with stress by sleeping, while 36 percent they deal with issues head on and 33 percent said they exercise to cope. ‘Stress may be inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be incurable,’ Vincenty said.

Yeah, amazing. This what you get when you have an entire generation raised by “single moms”, with no fathers to impart values and internal structure and self-discipline. They are, as my greatest generation uncles used to say, soft as a sneaker full of sh*t

A certain amount of stress in life is unavoidable, and in all honesty, to be endured or embraced: An absolutely stress-free life is impossible. And not only is it impossible, it is undesirable: We can’t grow without a challenge. (Even though my pride doesn’t like that!) I won’t deny the millenials (or anyone else) the stress they go through; As a professional driver, I just don’t want to hear the belly-aching! After all, who wants to hear mine? But there is one thing I have discovered. The older one gets, the harder life gets. At least, usually. I have problems… Read more »

Hell I’m breaking out a Tuba and an electric Base. There are a great deal in this generation who have served their country as volunteer, the represent the bright spots for their generation. Good post, I’m taking to my house, thank you.

I was raised to believe that one earned respect. One way to do that is to deal with life’s challenges in a mature and responsible manner. There is no shame in failing honorably. It is only shameful if one is unwilling to make the effort. Who said that life was going to be easy? Who is responsible for making it so? The older I get the more convinced I am that most people with coping problems got that way because they have a script running in their little minds of how everything is “supposed” to be. Of course, it never… Read more »

Stress is having cancer and knowing you are not going to make it. Stress is loosing a child. Stress is being homeless and having no hope. Millennials are spoiled children with no proper guidance at home, not having God in their lifes and going through it empty.

Alma, I lost my only son after 10 months in a coma and am a 3 time cancer survivor. My 1st wife also died… I am happily remarried to a wonderful woman and am very thankful for all my blessings. I help my 1st wife’s mom as much as she will let me and willingly so. I can not do for my own son but can do for others sons and daughters. When I do help them it is with the understanding that they are to help others in the future. I have helped a couple that have turned out… Read more »

I can think of 3 2018 High School graduates that are bucking the trend. One is a PFC in the US Army and the other 2 each work more than 1 job. They all 3 pay attention to business and are solid citizens. They are all Conservative too! There is no more powerful stress than the thought of cold or hunger. I have felt both and since the age of 14 worked full time to pay my own way.The only “Like” that mattered to me was being paid for my honest labor. Most of the kids today have no freakin’… Read more »

Millennials would be better named as the whining generation. I was born in the 50s, a wonderful time to live young. My parents divorced over the accidental death of my 2 year old sister, when I was an infant. My mom remained single for 10 years and never made more than $275/month. We had enough to eat but Mom reused every item–tinfoil used until it fell apart–we drove an old car and lived in a duplex. But honestly, I don’t remember being that unhappy. We lived a few miles from most of Mom’s family, Aunts, Uncles, cousins by the dozen,… Read more »

My daughter told me a long time ago that she would take care of me when I get older (she does want to become a surgical tech, and has worked in a retirement home).

I told her I appreciated the thought, but I’m gonna take care of myself as long as possible. I also told her the thought of relying on her generation for my care petrifies me because they can’t even take care of themselves.

Hey, at least she cares enough. My sister threatened my mom years ago, saying something like my mom would have to rely on her when she got older, but my mom said she’d rather be homeless than have to rely on my sister! LOL! When my mom died a few years ago, guess who took it the hardest? Oh, and sis is a big feminist too. I’d never want to rely on my sister, she never respected my mother because she had the gall to stay home and take care of us instead of laboring at some job outside the… Read more »

A lot of these millenials bring stress upon themselves; much of it has to do with cellphones like the article says. They refuse to face/acknowledge reality, and when it smacks them in the face, they crumple – or demand safe spaces. They follow “reality stars & shows” which is some of the fakest crap around.

There’s no room for the truth in safe spaces.

Many of them don’t even TALK to anyone. The guys seem to just want to be on their devices, though the girls are the same way.
Wonder how fast the art of conversation will last?

When I first saw this survey the other day, I had to check to make sure I hadn’t accidentally swerved into the Onion.

LOL – When one of these snowflakes gets shot at twice on the job as I have, then they can tell me about stress.

Until then, I don’t want to hear it.

Shot at is not good… Getting stabbed and having human waste thrown on you is no fun either…. Been there and have the scars from it. I have not been directly shot at but have been at work when there was a series of shootings less than a block from my building. In a previous job I was assaulted a couple of times while trying to defuse situations. I think those instances qualify as stress!

Not being able to find a job and worrying about not having enough money to pay your property taxes that are due soon are WAY more stressful than a stinking battery going dead. I can’t even afford a stupid dumb phone even if I wanted one. That EMR is radiating their brains. Having a roof over your head, good food to eat and clothes on your back are blessings that many do not even appreciate.
