New Orleans Named One of the Most Stressed Cities in America


Whether due to workplace deadlines, lovers quarrels, or an uncertain political climate, stress is unavoidable. A new study reveals that life in the Big Easy isn’t all that easy, with New Orleans ranked in the top 20 most stressed cities in the country. WalletHub conducted the survey, analyzing 150 American cities on key criteria related to work, financial, health, safety, and family stressors. 

 


Slow Down, Loosen Up

Opinion: A T-Shirt Inspires Life Advice



On my most recent return to New Orleans, I was privileged to deliver a lecture to a collection of honors undergraduate religion scholars. While back in town several days, I took in some of the local fare, sights, libations, and culture. While having lunch one afternoon Uptown, I saw a young woman wearing a shirt that caught my eye. The shirt was all black with only white lettering and featured a hand offering the familiar "peace sign." In a circle around the hand, almost as if to form a logo of sorts, I read the words: "Slow Down. Loosen Up."


Stress Test


Maybe, it got lost in the summer heat, written off to the humidity? The one thing we are not talking to much about is not talking too much. Whether, we admit it or not, tension has been running high since Maccondo blew her top. Cheryl Wagner tackles the unspoken in an almost-great article.
