Majority of Millennials feel that life is more stressful now than ever before

How is it that they can possibly know?

Characteristics of Millennials

Millennials grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially networked world.

It is clearly the generation that could have benefited from military service, working at V.A Hospitals or being part of an apprentice program.

 

Many have chosen the role as “Queen of the house hold and made the choice to take care of their children at home.

It’s true, look at the video below for the truth!

 

 

Being a full-time mother is a daunting task requiring stamina, little quality sleep and on call status 2X7X7.

They are the generation that has received the most marketing attention.

 

 

It would be inappropriate to paint them with the same brush.

Many have served our country as volunteers in our recent wars.

They have gone on receiving degrees as well as advanced degrees leading productive lives.

As the most ethnically diverse generation, Millennials tend to be tolerant of difference.

Having been raised under the mantra “follow your dreams” and being told they were special, they tend to be confident.

While largely a positive trait, the Millennial generation’s confidence has been argued to spill over into the realms of entitlement and narcissism. 

They are often seen as slightly more optimistic about the future of America than other generations, despite the fact that they are the first generation since the Silent Generation that is expected to be less economically successful than their parents.

Which generation are you?

These are Western Cultural Generations. Japan and Asia and portions of Europe will have their own generational definitions based on major cultural, political, and economic influences.

Note: Dates are approximate and there is some overlap because there are no standard definitions for when a generation begins and ends. See the section below about why this overlap.

 

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

Oh the horror!

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.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

  1. Opinion says:

    The entire concept of “Stress” has evolved over the past 100 years and it is safe to say that the evolution of stress has been sad to watch.

    The old standard before these modern times was to get an education of some sort and get prepared to earn a living to support you and a family. The get a family was inevitable because that was what everyone did back in the day! When a couple got in the with child condition then marriage followed as night does day. It was the standard back in the day.

    Today, the concept of responsibility and having a “family” appears to have disappeared. The abundance of unwed mothers and homes without fathers is overwhelming.

    As an observer, I see the current generation turning to drugs and alcohol to avoid stress and responsibility.

    The simple answer might be conscription for fathers who ignore their responsibility for their children. This plan would give the dad an income to be assessed to pay child support and place this irresponsible father is a position to learn some job skills and discipline to accept the consequences of his actions.

      As usual on the nails, at some point they will learn to get it together, become productive or they will perish. It’s called capitalism, where a safety is not provided for the lazy especially if you are white. Blacks, step right up for your Obama phone, and EBT card.

  3. While each generation seems to think the “next” generation has it much easier, I think it is safe to say that they have! Even though I may think of the Millennials as being “soft” it is encouraging to see statistically that 69% of them attack stress head on or otherwise find a way to cope with stress. Those are the 69% that will lead the country in the right direction, hopefully. Maybe the 50% of Americans who currently are along for the ride (pay no taxes and get government aid) will be reduced by these 69% Millennials who can cope!
