America’s 10 Most Stressful Cities – The Affirmation Spot for Friday September 19, 2008

This is interesting. Forbes Magazine this week published its list of the 10 most stressful cities in The United States. It includes the expected suspects – that due their size and congestion – might be expected to be stressful. So, if you live in any of these cities, you have an added impetus to take steps to de-stress your life.

  1. Chicago
  2. New York
  3. Detroit
  4. Los Angeles
  5. San Francisco
  6. San Diego
  7. Cleveland
  8. Salt Lake City
  9. Providence
  10. Philadelphia

I’m sure there could be debate about some of these cities. Cleveland and Salt Lake City? The magazine used the following criteria:

  • Unemployment rates
  • Gasoline prices
  • Air quality
  • Population density

If you’re feeling stressed and your city didn’t make the list. There’s always hope for next year.

Stay inspired!

I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
