There are many things that you can't take away from us here in New Jersey, and one of them is the stress we have gathered and quite frankly earned over the course of any given week.

So when experts start throwing around the thought that New Jersey has low-stress levels, it can get the average New Jersey resident, well, stressed.

It turns out that in a recent report, New Jersey is actually among the least stressed states in the nation. Excuse me, but are you kidding me?

How is it possible that the state with ridiculous traffic, major congestion, high prices, and the highest taxes on the planet be among the least stressed states?

We turn to WalletHub, which just announced that New Jersey is the 11th least stressed state in the nation, and that's going to need some explaining.

How is New Jersey the 41st most stressed state in America? Here are some of the statistics that led us to that relaxed place.

Here is how New Jersey ranks in certain stress categories.

Work-Related Stress...12th

Money-Related Stress...39th

Family-Related Stress...43rd

Health and Safety-Related Stress...45th

Did they just tell us that New Jersey ranks 39th for money-related stress? Our New Jersey? There are 38 states more money-stressed than we are? I highly doubt that.

No one has higher taxes on the planet. No one pays more for daily items than we do. Of course, we're stressed. Who wouldn't be?

This report is the main source of my stress right now. How ironic is that? So, I'm not sure anyone is going to buy into this.

But if you are a positive, upbeat New Jersey resident, then sit back and enjoy all this relaxation we have here in the Garden State.
