What is millennial stress? Well, escaping a lion’s hungry eyes is not a day-to-day challenge for most of us like it was hundreds of years ago. Although our daily challenges have shifted significantly, this doesn’t mean that we don’t feel stress in today’s urban jungle.
Over time mankind evolved and so did psychological stressors. As such, we began to wonder about the most common stresses today. To find out, we teamed up with consumer research company SWNS/72 Point and polled 2,000 American millennials.
We found one-third of millennials claim their lives are more stressful than what the average person’s day-to-day life.
Given that priorities tend to shift as time goes on, millennials are no different, and our research uncovered the fact that today’s digital age is causing a bulk of their stress:
- One third believe their phone dying when lost is more stressful than fraudulent charges on their credit card
- 30% put WiFi-issues at a higher rate of stress than being stuck in traffic
- One in five reports that getting zero likes on a social media post is more stress-inducing than having a big argument with their partner
Clearly, losing that digital connection is a cornerstone of millennial stress.
What can start off as minor stressors can easily turn into big stressors. Most Americans don’t deal with stress well according to our research, and 67% are searching for more ways to deal with their stress.
“No matter what’s causing our stress, we should take care to be proactive about finding solutions before it begins affecting our health. Stress may be inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be incurable. Studies have shown that getting enough rest and using CBD products are both excellent natural methods for reducing stress and improving our ability to deal with it.”
