Relax, Stress Lightens Up When You Hit Your 30s and 40s

And if you're in your 20s—hang in there.

Between now and 30, it’s gonna suck—but then things will lighten up, says new research from Happify, a science-based mental-health app.

The site analyzed 88,000 of its users’ stress levels and found that stress is worst in a person’s 20s, when grown-up responsibilities—rent, bills, career, romance—are growing faster than the coping mechanisms needed to handle them.

Luckily, this lets up in the 30s to 40s, when coping skills are more developed. Hang in there, it’s almost over.
