Philadelphia, Pa Considered One Of The Most Stressed Cities In The Country
We can all agree that stress is something no one wants in their life. Stress can bring so many problems and no one has time for that.
According to Wallet Hub, some cities across the whole country suffer from more stress than others. Unfortunately, Philadelphia is one of the cities that suffers from stress more than others.

That is a pretty big number if you ask me.
