Idahoans Get the Most Enjoyment, Utahans Most Stressed
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah residents are among the nation’s most stressed out. That’s according to a Gallup poll published this week. West Virginia took the title of most-stressed state in the 2012 study. Rhode Island and Kentucky followed close behind.
Utah residents bucked the national trend by reporting higher levels of stress, but also saying they enjoyed themselves for the most part. Hawaii came in at the least stressed, with two-thirds of people in the survey reporting that they were at ease. Idaho comes in somewhere in the middle.
But, Idaho did make the top five of states that experience the most enjoyment. The poll finds 87.3 percent of Idahoans experience the most enjoyment the day before the survey at number five. Hawaii topped that list. Other states with lower levels of stress included Louisiana and Mississippi.
