Americans feeling the stress from inflation

[Fox 9 News, June 14, 2022] A recent national survey shows Americans are more stressed about money than they've been since at least 2015. They’re losing sleep and watching their mental and physical health worsen.

The survey from the American Psychological Association found that 87 percent of Americans say the rising prices of everyday items due to inflation is a significant source of stress.

Dr. Sarah Paper, a psychologist at Allina Health, said there’s no doubt everyone’s lives were drastically changed by the pandemic, and now there's money stress on top of that.

"It was the last thing that we needed. We're worried about now our physical health, our mental health, and our financial health, which then affects our relationship health," she explained.
