Is Stress Among Young Adults an Epidemic?

Stress is defined as a physical factor, such as injury, or mental state, such as anxiety, that disturbs the body’s normal state of functioning.

Is stress among young adults an epidemic? Well the American Psychological Association released February 7, 2013 a study that young adults between 18 and 33-years-old, are more stressed than any other generation to date! Although the latest survey shows stress is overall on the decline, stress still hover above healthy levels, especially for young adults.

Now most adults consider a stress level of 3.6 to be healthy, or manageable. However, results say the average stress level of adults in 2012 was 4.9 on this 10-point scale, quite a bit higher than what is normal.

What is causing the higher rate of stress? Research shows that the cause of the high stress level for these adults aged 18-33, is work and money. In addition, 39% of young adults stress increased during the past year and 52% saying that it has kept them up at night. These long days and nights can also result in depression, disorders, and bad habits. The most concerning trend emerging is the fact that most Americans do not feel they are managing their stress well and also that the health care system is not there to help them cope.

Although it may seem difficult to not stress out, don’t get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that you forget to take care of your own needs. Nurturing yourself is a necessity, not a luxury. Make time for fun and relaxation, you’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors when they inevitably come.
