Stress is common today in many people's lives. Have our lives grown more stressful or have we grown less able to deal with stress? Or is the amount of stress the same as its always been?
In my pyschology class my teacher asked us this question, "Do you believe individuals in the United States experience more stress than individuals in other countries?"
To my surprise most everyone in the classroom said that yes indeed Americans experience more stress. Perhaps, I am wrong, but I feel like stress in many other countries if not most other countries is much higher than in America. Take many of the asian countries for example, china, japan, and south korea are a few that come to mind. They live in extremely high pressure societies with tons and tons of stress and also have much higher suicide rates than America. Many of the suicides are stress related.
Many other countries come to mind, including most of Africa, much of the middle east, much of eastern europe and Russia, and much of latin America.
What do you guys think? Is America more stressed out as a whole than most other countries?
