A few months ago, I signed up for MTV Sticky, a newsletter about youth focused culture, trends and insight.
If you’re involved in youth ministry, it’s a great resource to understand global youth culture and trends. I like it because it isn’t just about U.S. culture. It has insights from all over the world and helps you understand global youth culture.
You have to sign up to get access, but I haven’t received any emails from them that haven’t been beneficial. So head over there and sign up today.
It is true that all over the world young people are looking for ways to relieve stress in their lives. I thought this article over at YPulse was interesting about how young people relieve stress. According to the article that YPulse references, “stress is the invisible global constant afflicting youth of all ages in all markets.”
5 Ways Young People Relieve Stress
Listening to Music – 65% of all young people on the planet listen to music to relieve stress. I wonder what they’re listening to.
Watching TV – 48% watch TV to relieve stress (but not the news…it stresses them out)
Talking to Friends – the use of technology has made this even more available as a stress reducer
Praying – young people who pray more are less stressed. Ypulse says, “Stressed youth on average pray 3.7 times per week. Relaxed youth pray 8.8 times a week.”
