People aged between 18 and 33 have stress levels reaching 5.4 on a scale of 10, that is, they belong to the generation that lives more stressed, as can be seen from the survey data carried out by the American Psychological Association.
Researchers consider a level of stress 3.6 healthy.
The APA survey also revealed that the issues that cause the most stress at any age are the job (76%), the money (63%) and personal relationships (59%).
Also, this generation also suffers more depression than any other, with a rate of 19%, above 14% of adults of generation X (between 34 and 47 years of age), and 12% of the members of the "Baby Boomers" generation (aged between 44 and 66 years).
Anxiety rates of the most stressed generation double that of their parents.
