The surf may be up in Hawaii, but blood pressure definitely isn’t.

The Aloha State is the least stressed state in the country.

The findings come from a study based on 350,000 interviews. Only 32% of people in Hawaii claimed they felt stressed the day before. A nice leisurely day at the beach followed by a luau will do that.

That’s a far cry from West Virginia, which is the most stressed state in the land, with 47% admitting they felt stressed the day before. Maybe everyone is up nights trying to think of ways they can move to Hawaii.

Five least stressed states

1. Hawaii
2. Louisiana
3. Mississippi
4. Iowa
5. Wyoming

Five most stressed states
