Quick, I need you stop for a moment and think of how many times you’ve been frustrated and anxious just this week?

Has it been two or three times already? What types of things have set you off? Was it traffic, something or someone at work, maybe a nosy neighbor?

According to a new study, the average person gets frustrated and anxious four or five times each week.

When you think about it another way, that ends up being 234 times a year or about two-thirds of your entire life!

Reading that is enough to make a person frustrated!

Here are the top 5 things that trigger frustration and anxiousness with the typical person:

Being stuck in traffic



Accidents and construction happen. It’s a part of life. Annoying as they may be. Then there’s the subject of big city traffic jams. That’s an entirely different nightmare if you’re not used to it.

Worrying about our health.



Everyone has or will have in their lifetime some sort of health issue that will cause you stress in your life.

Worrying about our finances.



We’ve all had it, that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, wondering how you’re going to pay a certain bill or make your paycheck last until the end of the month.

The weather.



Mother Nature can throw you a curve ball from time to time. Kinda like that little hail storm we had here on Saturday night.

Not being able to lose weight.



Many people each year embark on some sort of new weight loss plan. Often times the end result wasn’t what they hoped for, causing a great deal of frustration.
