Average American Has "2 Months" of Bad Days Per Year

Having a bad day? Brace yourself — the average American experiences sixty bad days per year, a new study has revealed.

The survey of 2,000 working Americans examined how we deal with stress, what exactly a “bad day” consists of and what effect it has on our subsequent health.

Work was inevitably a big contributor, as the results found the average respondent blames work for four out of the five bad days they experience in a typical month.

The research, commissioned by fitness app Freeletics, looked at the specific reasons given for people recently experiencing a bad day and found not getting enough sleep was the biggest contributing factor to a bad day (67 percent).

Feeling sick is also a big factor to a bad day, as well as financial worry and work-related stress. The mood of our days rests in a gentle balance, as one in four Americans said that not having any hot water in their shower has completely ruined their day on at least one occasion.

Thirty-four percent have had their days ruined by having some plans fall through, and 25 percent said a bad hair day led to a full-fledged bad day.

Sporting heartbreak can even ruin a day, but most Americans are able to quickly shrug off their favorite sports team losing a game with only eight percent listing it as a contributing factor to a bad day.
