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.
