New Study Says St. Paul Is The Most Chill City In The Entire Country

By geo-specific screenings of over 5 million tweets conducted through TensiStrength, a system that gauges the stress, anxiety, and frustration levels of individual tweets. TensiStrength, which was developed by a Wolverhampton University professor, revealed two other locally relevant findings in its scan of the country's 100 most populous cities: Minneapolis is the sixth least-stressed city and Minnesota in the third least-stressed state. Let these revelations act as yet another soothing salve on your already chilled-out soul. 

The following are examples of tweets that triggered the highest stress rating on TensiStrength's -5 (very highly stressed) to 5 (highly relaxed) scale (excuse the Anglotastic phrasing of that last one): 

  • "My job makes me f****** anxious and not even working right now"
  • "My back hurts when in the middle of my work. My back hurts horribly when on my days off"
