The Real Reason The Panic Attacks Are Winning

Grokker teamed up with SurveyMonkey to examine what most stresses Americans and how the nation is coping with the rising epidemic. Contrary to popular belief, the fears keeping Americans up at night are global or geo-political issues that are out of their immediate control.

Americans are more afraid of global terrorism than being killed by a gun (68% vs. 35%). They are more stressed out by the melting ice caps than by their demanding boss (64% vs. 42%). And they are more anxious about bigotry, racism, sexism, and xenophobia than their own marriage (66% vs. 33%).

It’s clear that Americans are taking personal responsibility for their own stress levels -- even as the issues that really concern them are out of their control. With 96% of Americans experiencing physical and psychological symptoms that are closely associated with increased stress, we’re not surprised to see that they aren’t waiting on doctors or the government for an answer: Americans are taking stress reduction into their own hands.
