“Despite an improving economy, nearly 90% of Americans surveyed by the American Psychological Association said the level of stress they are feeling about money has either remained the same or gotten worse in the last year, according to the group’s annual Stress in America report.”
Almost 75% of the people surveyed by the American Psychological Association said they stressed about money at some point during the past month, and more than 25% said they stress about money all the time. The majority of these people were low-income people or parents of minors. Money stress was reported to have mainly come from paying unwanted/unexpected bills, and household necessities and groceries. Family and work also factor greatly into the average Americans stress levels. Many people skip out on their doctors’ appointments and medical bills because of their financial situation and the stress that arises due to it. In order to cope with situations like such, many Americans find themselves inclined to have hazardous addictions towards their health and mental stability. It is a problem that is becoming more evident and must be resolved.
