According to a survey by neuro drinks, Detroit is “America’s Most Stressed City,” followed by New York City in second, with Chicago and Houston tied for third. The results of the proprietary study that surveyed more than 1,200 consumers also confirm the hard truth that nearly 50 percent of Americans spend at least half their days stressed out. Furthermore, only nine percent of respondents report feeling happy during an average work day. Here are the top 10 rankings of America’s Most Stressed Cities:

1. Detroit
2. New York City
3./4. Chicago and Houston
5. Boston
6. Philadelphia
7. Austin
8. Atlanta
9. Los Angeles
10. Dallas

“Our survey indicates that Americans are experiencing burnout. They’re stretched too thin at home and at the office,” said Brian Pope, chief marketing officer of neuro. “With nine out of 10 consumers saying they would enhance their moods if they could, the findings couldn’t be clearer that Americans need to find relief from all the stress.”

Whether facing demands at work or at home, one thing is obvious: stress spans the nation. In addition to revealing today’s geographical stress hot beds, results unveiled the following insights:

  • An overwhelming majority of respondents (78 percent) reported that lack of personal time contributes to their daily stress levels.
  • Respondents also cited too many distractions as a secondary cause of daily stress.
  • The working parent may carry the heaviest load: 86 percent of moms surveyed report spending at least half their workdays stressed out. That’s significantly higher than the survey’s American average (nearly 50 percent).
  • When looking at Americans’ moods on an average work day, a quarter of respondents report feeling productive, while nearly 30 percent claim being tired, followed by 14 percent who feel distressed or anxious, and 13 percent who are frustrated. The smallest sampling of those surveyed said they feel happy or calm (a shocking nine percent in each respective category).
