Maybe THIS is why people in Florida always seem to do CRAZIER stuff than people anywhere else.
A real estate website called Movoto just did a study on the most stressed out states in the country . . . and Florida is number one.
The rankings are based on six factors: Percentage of people with a commute over 20 minutes, the unemployment rate, hours worked, population density, percentage of income spent on housing, and percentage of people without health insurance.
The top 10 most stressed states are: Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, California, Nevada, Illinois, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, and Arizona.
On the other end, North Dakota was least stressed state. The rest of the 10 least stressed are: Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Vermont, Wyoming, Montana, Maine, and Utah. NH was 27th on the least stressed side! (Movoto)
