Do You Live In a Stressful City?

Forbes names top 10 stressful cities

-Julie Ryan Evans

stressed out womanI’ve lived in a lot of cities, but never in one of the 10 named this year by Forbes as America’s Most Stressful Cities. Although, Orlando (my current home) stresses me out quite a bit because they HAVE NO TRADER JOE’S!

I have visited most of the “winners,” and while I understand the majority of them, I was shocked to see Chicago come in above New York and Detroit, and quite blown away to see the tranquil-seeming Salt Lake City on the list at all. Perhaps it’s those strict liquor laws … I’m just saying a glass of wine does a lot for stress.

In reality, they judged cities by things like unemployment rates, pollution levels and the price of gas.

Here’s the lineup. For a complete explanation of the nominations, click here:

1. Chicago, IL
2. New York, NY
3. Detroit, MI
4. Los Angeles, CA
5. San Francisco, CA
6. San Diego, CA
7. Cleveland, OH
8. Salt Lake City, UT
9. Providence, RI
10. Philadelphia, PA
