Top Reasons Why Millennials Are the Most Stressed Generation

With a fast-paced environment and advanced technology today, everybody is learning to cope with the ever-changing lifestyle. Across generations, issues about finances are the biggest cause of stress - and stress leads to anxiety. Anxiety comes in many different forms, but the most common symptoms of anxiety is feeling worried and anxious about anything. Financial stress and anxiety were proven to be linked to general health problems like high blood pressure and heart attacks. When it turns sour it can have serious effects on not only our mental health but also our physical health.

A couple of shared factors add to millennial pressure rates, which you will find out about in this article. Here we could say that millennials encounter a whole new level of situations other generations do not.

Workplace Miseries

Numerous more established laborers are voicing out about their dislike of working with millennials. We are sure that you have heard a lot of employers complain that younger people nowadays do not appreciate what they have and have tons of issues to complain about. But there are reasons behind all these “complaints”. 

The issues are more unpredictable than that Millennials often understand what they deserve and how to achieve them. Meaning if they feel underappreciated, want a salary raise or a promotion, they will be expressing fully what they want. They would recognise and take note when a workplace is toxic, too stressful for them to handle or even when a job is not suitable for them. By then they will always choose what is good for their mental health and will opt for a change. The workplace today consists of mainly millennials. Most of the workplace need an upgrade on their company policies if they wish to keep their younger employees.

Impractical Expectations

Millennials are expected with unreasonable expectations and are pressured to succeed from all generations. From owning a home, being financially stable to building a family, these things were easier to do for baby boomers back in the time where their living expenses were not so ridiculously high. Millennials were often judged on their financial status by the previous generations. They were always comparing and little do they know not all of them actually consider that the younger age groups do not have ready access and qualities from the older generations to go after their goals.

As quoted by Mike Hais, a market researcher and co-author of two books on millennials including “Millennial Momentum”, he mentioned that millennials are growing up at a tough time. “They were sheltered in many ways, with a lot of high expectations for what they should achieve. Individual failure is difficult to accept when confronted with a sense you're an important person and expected to achieve. Even though, in most instances, it's not their fault -- the economy collapsed just as many of them were getting out of college and coming of age -- that does lead to a greater sense of stress."

Affected Mental Health

More and more people are struggling with mental health issues today, especially during this pandemic. Loss of income and jobs are driving people into major stress, depression and anxiety. It is not shocking that millennials are also dealing with significant mental health problems these days. Imagine having high expectations from the society, at the same time struggling to pay off debts while having a pay cut or even losing jobs. This is where anxiety, stress and trouble falling asleep are born.
It is clear that the next generation has to deal with bigger challenges as future days come, and their mental health is taking the hit for it. This is why you need Rilax®  to help you get through it all.

How and Why Rilax® Works

Rilax® contains 2 main ingredients : Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate and L-Theanine.

Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate is a bioactive peptide extracted from the milk of only the Holstein breed in France. These cows are specially reared and the milking is done only at night. The milk bioactive peptide has an affinity for GABA-A receptors, and increases the activity of GABA which is a neurotransmitter known for its inhibitory action on anxiety and for its relaxing properties. The milk bioactive peptide induces relaxation, improves sleep and promotes slow delta brain waves leading to deep restorative sleep. It is classified by FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)

L-Theanine is an amino acid naturally found abundant in green tea leaves. Studies show that L-theanine enhances sleep quality and efficiency. L-theanine promotes sleep via a subtle anxiolytic effect, altering levels of neurotransmitters and enhancing alpha brain waves. In addition, supplementation does not promote drowsiness, cause dependence, or lead to adverse reactions. It produces a minor anxiolytic effect to the extent that stress is reduced and concentration improves. FDA has granted L-theanine GRAS status.
