Germany is where you should live to have a Stress-Free Life

stuttgart2The biggest health threat for people isn’t heart disease or cancer. Anxiety and stress have been pinpointed again and again as key factors contributing to the deterioration of mental health and quality of life.

A new study has revealed the world's most and least stressful cities of 2017, based on factors including traffic levels, public transport, percentage of green spaces, financial status of citizens including debt levels, physical and mental health, and the hours of sunlight the city gets per year.

Of the 150 cities ranked, four out of the top ten most stress-free cities are in Germany. Stuttgart ranked the least stressful city in the world, followed by Luxembourg city. German city of Hanover ranked 3rd. Glamorous, global cities such as London (70th), Tokyo (72nd), Paris (78th), and New York (84th) clustered around the middle of the league table.

The study, by UK-based dry-cleaning and laundry service Zipjet, was conducted by studying 500 locations based on data relating to 17 categories covering infrastructure, pollution levels, finance and citizens' wellbeing.
