According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a little stress is normal and can actually be good for you.

But when it reaches chronic levels, it can cause health problems such as insomnia, anxiety, high blood pressure and a weakened immune system.

And residents of some states seem to be more stressed than others.

Wellness brand Komowa has compiled ranking the most and least stressed residents of a particular state in America. The company compared US subdivisions based on 16 key stress indicators, including work hours, credit card debt, divorce rates, commute times and more.

States were ranked in specific categories, including highest credit card debt and longest commute times.

Key indicators were grouped by similarity and reduced to four main categories:

  • money stress;
  • work stress;
  • health stress;
  • family stress.

Top 10 states in America with maximum stress levels

The first 10 places were taken by the following states:

  • Tennessee;
  • Alabama;
  • Oklahoma;
  • Louisiana;
  • Nevada;
  • South Carolina;
  • Georgia;
  • Arizona;
  • West Virginia;
  • Indiana.

Surprisingly, New York and California did not make the top ten list, with New York ranked 24th and California 25th.

But New York City ranked first for the longest commute (33,2 minutes on average), although it missed out on the number of hours worked.

Florida ranked 18th with the highest rate of people without health care and the highest divorce rate.

Louisiana residents seem to work the hardest, averaging 44,3 hours per week.

Alaska ranked first for the highest credit card debt with an average of $7338, while Wisconsin had the lowest average credit card debt at $4808.

Tennessee is the leader in the rankings

Topping the overall list of the most stressful states in the US is Tennessee.

It scored very highly for greatest health stress, ranking third for the highest prevalence of depression (24,4%). 15,5% of residents stated that “their physical health is poor more than 14 days a month.”

In addition, Tennesseans work more hours than the average American. The state ranked 3rd in hours worked, averaging 42,3 hours per week. Tennessee scored fairly low on residents' annual income and ability to work from home. States also spend a lot of time commuting to work.

Alabama came in second largely due to its residents' health stress and job stress—they worked more hours than other Americans but earned much less. And they have one of the highest divorce rates.

In third place is Oklahoma. It ranked first for health stress, which may be directly related to the percentage of residents without health care. There is a high prevalence of depression among the state's residents.

States where stress levels are lowest:

  • North Dakota;
  • Utah;
  • Nebraska;
  • Minnesota;
  • South Dakota;
  • Wisconsin;
  • Idaho;
  • Wyoming;
  • Washington.

Minnesotans say they experience the least amount of stress related to money and family. Utah had a minimum average number of hours worked per week. It has one of the lowest percentages of the population living in poverty and the lowest divorce rate in the United States.
