 Job Anxiety Stresses Men the Most, While Women are More Worried About Family Matters

A new study has found that men worry about their job while women are concerned about family matters and about life in general.

The research, based on surveys of more than 1,200 U.S. residents, by Polaris Marketing Research regarding sources of stress revealed that men were more likely to say work issues were causing them angst, while women were significantly more likely to cite financial issues, lack of time, family problems, living situation and relationship issues.

While both men and women cited watching television as their top way to relieve stress, their other unwinding tricks varied.

According to the research, women are more likely to sleep, listen to music, surf the Internet, socialize, pray, read a book, write in a journal or eat their favourite comfort foods, while men were more likely to play video games, exercise and have a drink to help relax.

"While women have more stressors in their lives, they also use more diverse ways of relieving stress," Jan Carlson, Polaris President, said.

Overall, the study found that women perceive themselves to be more stressed than men - but they also said their stress levels are lower than they were last year.

Men, meanwhile, were more likely to rate their stress levels the same as they were one year ago.
