Living in New York City has its pros and cons.
On one hand, New York is an amazing metropolis filled with glittering skyscrapers and seemingly endless possibilities. However, living in a place that gives you infinite opportunities, and the ability to have Chinese food delivered at 2 A.M., comes with a serious cost: a whole lot of stress and aggravation.
Yep, if you’ve ever had the chance to call New York City home, you’re probably familiar with how stressful and exhausting the daily grind can be in the Big Apple. Seriously, there’s a reason they call this place, “The City That Never Sleeps.”
Living in a place that gives you infinite opportunities, and the ability to have Chinese food delivered at 2 A.M., comes with a serious cost: a whole lot of stress and aggravation.
The hustle and bustle of New York City requires you to be on your A-game 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Careers and wealth tend to be a top priority among many New Yorkers. This city is a highly competitive place that’s filled with ambitious people who are highly motivated and hungry for success.
So in order to rise to the top, or at least earn enough to afford the exorbitant rent for your apartment, you have to work really, really hard. This might be one of the reason why a lot of the people who live here often seem overworked, sleep deprived, and on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
The rat race isn’t the only thing that keep New Yorkers on edge, either. The city also has a way of making your stress levels soar to new and unimaginable heights by throwing curve balls at you when least expect it.
Sometimes it’s an insane amount of traffic, or unexpected subway delays when you’re already running late for a meeting. Other times, it’s Uber price surges, long lines, strangers who accidentally spill their coffee on you in a packed subway car, or slow tourists who abruptly stop in front of you for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Whatever the case may be, New York City gives you plenty of reasons to be stressed out AF on a daily basis.
