We all love peace of mind and would like to have stress-free days. According to a new study, three in four Americans will do almost anything just to enjoy a stress-free day.
People will love to trade anything for a stress-free day
A study of 2,000 Americans indicated that one in ten people could not recall the last time they enjoyed a stress-free day. The study revealed that whenever someone feels stressed, they avoid necessary tasks such as vacuuming, cleaning homes and doing laundry.
The majority stated that they would pass on sex (26%), an entire paycheck (28%), and a week’s productivity (30%) if it meant they would have a stressful day.
According to the Noom commissioned study conducted by OnePoll, aroudn83% of Americans believe that people may benefit by taking mental wellness seriously. Interestingly, 81% of Americans are currently okay with their mental well-being, and only 655 have thought about it in the last two years.
Since the beginning of 2020, respondents were most likely to experience breakup (33%), anxiety (29%), stress (47%), separate from a loved one (39%), move to a new community (38%), and lose a loved one (22%).
Self-care is all about people.
Around 66% of Americans have been motivated to better look after their mental health as a result of hearing and seeing more others in their lives share and discuss their wellbeing journeys. According to the survey, mental health action is frequently motivated by its effect on others rather than personal introspection.
The main motivating elements for people who have attempted to prioritize their mental wellbeing are thinking about how their mental state affects others (53%), witnessing peers benefit from doing so (51%), and talking with close relatives (46%).
Surprisingly, some are not motivated to take care of their wellbeing. However, for such individuals, certain things make them seriously consider their wellbeing, like the lack of functioning during the day (30%), having a friend or relative urge them to seek help (30%), and accessing reliable and digestible information regarding mental wellness (30%).
