Fewer Americans are “thriving” today than 13 months ago.
While daily stress and worry remain steady and near pre-pandemic levels, according to a new life satisfaction poll released in March by the polling firm Gallup:
- The percentage of adults classified as “thriving” dropped again to 53.2%
- Thriving rates among independents have dropped steeply since June 2021
- Daily stress and worry both remain steady and near pre-pandemic levels
To some degree this holds true regardless of what country we live in. Daily stress continues to be on the rise, as there will always be something to factor in: the pandemic, rising inflation, invasions or managing change in our work environments.
