What Are Minnesota’s Young Adults Most Stressed About?
Being a young adult is stressful, there's no denying that. There's a lot of pressure on us to be fully functioning adults when we are just learning the ropes. There are bills to pay, loans to pay back, new job experiences, and so much more. It's a world of "firsts" and it can get overwhelming at times. A study found that 18 to 25-year-olds feel stressed out an average of six hours per day. So what are we worried about? Here were the top 10 stressors.
2. The future
5. Overall health
6. Getting a job
7. Trying to get into a chosen career path
8. Finding a job that pays enough money
9.. The health of a friend or family member
10. Meeting deadlines and goals at work
Notice how six of the top 10 are work related. That is a lot of stress stemming from one huge part of our lives. We are told to work jobs we love, but sometimes those jobs don't pay that well, or aren't easy to get into. The stress from that impacts our overall physical and mental health which is also something we worry about! It's a circle of stress that never ends! Break the cycle, take time to take care of yourself. We have our whole lives to worry about everything, just take it one day at a time and hopefully it'll all be alright in the end!
