When it comes down to it, is really all about maintaining an appropriate level of happiness. Because that’s the goal of the end day, finding the right level of work that still allows you to enjoy life.
Some people actually enjoy sacrificing a bit of their personal life in pursuit of their career. And some would prefer to get out on the town on Friday nights.

Well, these places in Idaho haven’t quite gotten that down yet and are relatively stressed because of it. They are places where people struggle to find steady jobs, can’t always live comfortably, and then don’t get to enjoy things like family and friends as often as they would like.

We took a look at data from the most recent American Community Survey from the Census Department to identify which of the 100 biggest places in Idaho have failed to master the art of not bringing work home with them and living a balanced lifestyle.

After getting home late for dinner because of rush hour traffic, we were left with this set of ten places in the Gem State that have the most stress:

  1. Horse Shoe Bend
  2. Challis
  3. Emmett
  4. Marsing
  5. Ashton
  6. Wilder
  7. Arbon Valley
  8. Gooding
  9. Wallace
  10. Spirit Lake

Read on to see how we identified the towns that are tearing their hair out from all the stress.
