Whether you are at home or at work, stress has become a huge problem. As per the American Institute of Stress, 40 percent of workers have reported that their job was either very or extremely stressful. Whereas 25 percent of workers consider their jobs to be the number one source of stress in their lives. And to think that we were told to do what we love, ironic, isn’t it? A recently conducted Gallup survey’s results were announced yesterday.
According to those results, ‘more Americans were stressed, angry and worried last year than they have been at most points during the past decade.’ America has made it to the top ten most stressed countries in the world. Check out the complete list of top 10 most-stressed countries according to the Gallup survey below;
- Sri Lanka
- United States

When Gallup asked people in the United States about how they had felt the previous day, a vast majority of Americans (55 percent to be exact) in 2018 had stated that they had experienced stress ‘a lot’ during the day. And we all know that with stress comes anger. However, the United States didn’t earn a spot on the top ten list of most angry populations in 2018. The list is given below;
- Palestinian Territories
According to Gallup, the overall trend doesn’t look promising. It says, ‘The world took a negative turn in 2017, with global levels of stress, worry, sadness and pain hitting new highs.’ We strongly suggest that you learn to take control of the stress and don’t allow it to dictate your life.
