Looking like the Mid-West keep the stress level under control. I can definitley see this study being accurate. Even with having two young daughter, a house payment and a car payment, I keep things pretty stress free. I wake up everyday with a smile on my face because everyday is a new day, plus life is too short to be stressed all the time.
