Could you have guessed that an island state surrounded by beaches, beauty, and potheads happens to be number 1 in the least stressed category? Well guess what, there ain’t no stress like Hawaii stress because there ain’t a lot of it to go around.┬áThe working title for the is article was simply “No Sh*t”.

Actually, despite all the surf and luaus, about 1/3 of Hawaii’s residents are still stressed? Why? They’re American adults dummy, it’s not like this crap ain’t easy. But Hawaii’s 32.1% of stressed citizens is still quite low compared to the rest of the country. The least-stressed runner-up, Louisiana, comes in at 37.6%.
