Expert Says Local Business Directories can Reduce Stress

An expert says local business directories can reduce the out-of-control stress Americans are experiencing.


Americans are dealing with stress on a larger level than they ever have, according to experts. In fact, the American Psychological Association says that 75 percent of adults say they have experienced moderate to high stress levels in the past month and almost half of them say their stress has only increased in the past year. What’s more, the same organization says that for teens before the 9th and 12th grade, stress is a top health concern. The report goes on to say that if these teens don’t learn to control that stress, it could result in long-term health implications.


But a spokesman from a local business directory says that local directories can play a significant role in stress reduction. “Our culture is so fast-paced with information coming at us at an alarming rate,” says a spokesman from FindUsLocal.com, an online local business directory that uses GEO location technology to match the local results visitors see the instant they log onto the site. “And all that causes stress to the average person. But our local business directory is designed in a way that reduces stress by allowing people to get all their information in one place, rather than having to consult other sources.”


He’s talking about FindUsLocal.com, a local directory that premiers a host of unique features on it’s front page. Visitors will find social media posts from local businesses, local news, online reviews for the shops and restaurants in that area, funny and inspirational daily features, information about local meetups, concert, sporting event, and theatre information and tickets, and even local coupons exclusive to the site.


“By giving consumers one central place to find all the information they need, our goal is to help reduce the unthinkable stress than many Americans are dealing with,” he says. “And that’s our goal with our local business directory—to provide a much needed service while helping people manage the information overload most of them are dealing with.”
