Feeling stressed? Well, if you live in Minnesota and North Dakota not so much.
A study by a personal finance website reported Tuesday that Minnesota is the least stressed state in the nation, with North Dakota right behind it.
In fact, if you live in the Upper Midwest your chances of being fairly stress-free are good.
Iowa is the fourth least-stressed state with South Dakota and Wisconsin at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively, according to the personal finance website WalletHub that looked at 38 key indicators of stress. Utah is the third.
In Minnesota, it’s more relaxing because of finances, healthy people and less family-related stress. As examples, according to the study, the state ranks No. 1 in highest credit score and is third for the lowest number of people in fair or poor health. Minnesota also is fourth in lowest divorce rates and psychologists per capita and has the fifth lowest percent of people living below the poverty line.
