Sin City Las Vegas has been voted the most stressful city by Forbes.com.

“Las Vegas has got its share of stressors," says Kathleen Grace Santor M.Ed., Ed.S., a therapist and yoga instructor who founded the center and has studied stress for 15 years. "The 24-hour day requires employees to work 24 hours a day. They're too busy, they have too much on their plate, and they're always hurried."

The Forbes.com piece points out that Las Vegas residents flood the Stress Management Center of Nevada daily looking for relief from their problems.  Those problems include one of the worst real estate markets in the country and a recession that has taken a serious toll on the city with nearly 15 percent unemployment. 

Forbes also suggests that Las Vegas residents exercise less than residents of any other city.  In fact, 30 percent of those living in Vegas say they hadn’t exercised in the past month.   

"Someone who exercises for 30 minutes a day is going to have a lower level of stress hormones in their bloodstream than someone who never does," says Santos, who adds that the searing Las Vegas sun and biting desert winds inhibit outdoor exercise. "Right now nobody is going to go out walking. It's not one of those nice places where it's conducive to go for a walk and then come back and cook dinner."

The same could be said about the numerous crypto currencies available today. There are new ones popping up what seems to be almost every day. The problem is that you need to have multiple crypto wallets and use multiple exchanges in order to acquire, trade or sell them.
