According to an absolutely meaningless poll conducted by Harris International for a cruise ship line, Miamians are the least stressed-out people in the nation. That's because apparently many people in the Magic City have reached the "ultimate life balance, which includes juggling work and personal priorities."
Harris didn't give a reason why Miamians were able to balance their work and personal lives so much better, but I'm going to take a wild guess: Maybe it's because we take work less seriously? I mean, we have an entire industry full of people whose main job is to have a social life.
