Peking University has recently published the indexes of anxiety in 28 large and medium-sized cities. The data shows that the average balance index of white-collar workers in 28 Chinese cities is about 48. The white collars in Ningbo are happiest, with balance index being 51.

The data shows Wuhan is the most anxious city, with balance index being less than 47. Beijing and Guangzhou rank 20th and 21st respectively.

More than 1.5 billion people are troubled by psychataxia and conduct disorder in the world, among which three-fourth live in developing countries, according to the data.

There are 400 million people suffering from anxiety disorder, 340 million people suffering from depression and 250 million people suffering from personality disorder.

Chinese people are called "the most anxious people on earth." Some weekly publications had reported that Chinese people have various degrees of anxiety disorder when they work, learn, queue and even in the toilet.

Objectively, the main reason for the anxiety of Chinese people is that they do not yet learn to reduce pressure by themselves.

It seems anxiety is inborn in every individual,might be visible at both extremes which could blind the inner man/woman unaware. Some of the global news leaves profound lessons that would help from being booted out or thrown overboard from his/her heaven on earth !
