It’s no secret to say that 2020 was a pretty terrible year, and it seems folks would be more than happy to shell out a lot of money to be able to forget everything that happened.
A new survey finds:
- The average person 21 and older would be willing to spend $1,835.81 to erase all their memories of 2020.
- Folks were so stressed by 2020 they lost 245 hours of sleep, or about five hours each week.
- They also gained about 13 pounds due to stress.
- So, what were the most stressful things about 2020?
- Well, not surprisingly, the COVID-19 pandemic topped the list (50%), followed by:
- The US’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic (37%)
- The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (36%)
- The confirmation hearings of Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court (32%)
- The death of Kobe Bryant (30%)
- The presidential election (28%)
- President Trump (overall) (27%)
- Australian bushfires (27%)
- The death of Chadwick Boseman (24%)
- Economic instability in the US (23%)
- With all this stress, it’s no wonder that 30% of people say not having to deal with the most stressful aspects of their lives is the one thing they’d love to have in 2021.
- A third of Americans actually say one of their New Year’s resolutions is to find a way to manage their stress levels.
