The prospect of losing a smartphone stresses people out almost as much as the fear of a terrorist attack, according to a new study in Britain.
A report by The Physiological Society asked 2,000 people to rate how stressful they found key events.
While obvious situations scored highly, such as the death of a loved one or becoming seriously ill, so did modern concerns such as identity theft, commuter delays, and even going on vacation.
The threat of a terror attack came 13th on the list of stressful events, just one spot above losing a smartphone, and well below planning a wedding or moving.
The findings also showed that women report higher stress levels than men.
