Los Angeles is full of Stress Relievers

In a recent article published by Forbes, they ranked Los Angeles as the second most stressful city to live in. To determine their rankings of the “most” stressful cities, Forbes—using Federal data– analyzed factors including sleep, air quality, drop in home price values, unemployment percentages, as well as the ratio of sunny days per year to non sunny days in order to determine each cities ranking– from most stressful to least.

To be sure, living in Los Angeles can be stressful. For starters, just get on the freeway at rush hour or read the front page news in the LA Times; sometimes you can cut the stress in the air with a knife:

Housing prices are down, unemployment is up, jobs are scarce, people are grouchy, there’s no money, no time, and not much energy.

However, when in turn, I asked my followers on Twitter why they loved living in LA, I received responses like these:

Shelley Rae

@LisaNewton the WEATHER of course (does living in Long Beach count)?



@LisaNewton – the opportunities, the weather, the amount of stuff do to nearby, the beach, la tech.



@LisaNewton Easy: The weather & the beaches ;)



@LisaNewton Besides everything?


So while it is indeed stressful living in Los Angeles there’s a flipside as well. Just have a look:
