1 In 8 Americans Consider Moving More Stressful Than Jail!

We all know that moving is stressful. From packing all of our worldly possessions into boxes to planning out our new home’s layout, moving is almost always a difficult job that leads to some extra stress. However, a new survey of 2,000 Americans has revealed that many people consider moving to be among the most stressful situations they can imagine — even more so than spending a week in jail!

The survey, commissioned by the storage company Life Storage, asked participants to compare the stress of moving with other, highly stressful situations. Surprisingly, 13% of survey respondents — about one in eight — said that moving is more stressful than a week in jail. Another 27% said it’s more stressful than a job interview, and 23% said it is more stressful than planning a wedding.

All of that stress doesn’t just occur on moving day either. During the process of planning and executing a move, survey participants said they expect to lose two nights of sleep, put in four hours of hard labor, procrastinate for three hours, have two arguments with a roommate or romantic partner, and cry out of frustration twice.
