A published study from Gallup Global Emotions Report, shows disheartening numbers.

The results of the study (conducted on 150,000 people globally) show that year on year results of the American populations got a bit worse, again.

The study concludes that levels of worry and stress in the American population are increasing since 2016. 55 percent of the polled indicated increased levels of stress and 45% indicated increasing levels of overall worry.

Anger, which was held under 20% since 2011, has resurfaced in 2018 with over 20% os polled indicated the heightened levels of anger.

People are increasingly searching for ways to simplify life, as the overall indicated stress levels in the USA are nearly double the global average of 35%.

When Gallup investigated the results in bigger detail, the money worries came as one of the dominant reasons for the stress.

While this may be worrying, the USA had come on top when asked about positive experiences. 64% of USA adults indicated that they had done something interesting the day before, which is a great result in comparison to the global average of 49%.

Overall, the study reported increasing negative experiences since 2017 globally. Chad has topped the lists in 2018 in the field of reported negative experiences.

Latin America was in the lead when polled about positive experiences, which may come as a surprise. Countries on the top of the "positive" list - El Salvador and Honduras have record-high murder rates.

2019 was a difficult year globally with brewing conflicts and many economic uncertainties. We will be following up with the Gallup report when it is released this year.

While this may be worrying, the USA had come on top when asked about positive experiences. 64% of USA adults indicated that they had done something interesting the day before, which is a great result in comparison to the global average of 49%.
