It’s not really a surprise that it can take a lot of effort to live in a big city, but some cities are better than others when it comes to causing daily stress.
City living is not for the faint of heart.
It’s expensive and there’s usually a lot of traffic.
But a new report says that some cities are more manageable than others.
CNN Money put together a list of the top 55 most stressed out cities across the country.
Coming in at the top spot, and probably no surprise, is New York City.
CNN Money cites the major stress factors as long commutes, long work hours and a high cost of living.
On the bright side, they say the zen factor is a lower crime rate.
The second spot, Detroit, Michigan, with high crime and unemployment but the zen factor – shorter commutes and work hours.
Taking the third spot is Los Angeles, California.
The major stresses are heavy traffic and a high cost of living but on the flip side, people have healthy lifestyles and shorter work hours.
And rounding out the top five most stressed out cities is Riverside/San Bernardino, California, and Houston, Texas.
Where does Oklahoma City rank on this list?
Oklahoma City ranks 32 on the stressed out cities list.
The major stresses are High Property Crime rate but as far as the zen factor goes, low-cost of living keeps Oklahomans satisfied.
