(Newser) – Think you've got the most stressful life in the world, ladies? Unless you live in India, that's probably not true, according to a recent study. A staggering 87% of women surveyed in India said they felt stressed most of the time, and 82% claimed to have no time to relax, reports CNN. Women in Mexico (74%) and Russia (69%) are the next most stressed, with women in the US (53%) ranking 11th.

The Women of Tomorrow Study examined 6,500 women from 21 countries earlier this year, and found that there's also a correlation between women's stress and their spending habits. Those in developed countries like the US are more likely to spend on vacations, savings, and paying off debt; while those in emerging countries like India are more likely to splurge on themselves. Women are also more immersed in social networking, talking 28% more and texting 14% more than men each month. Reuters also has the study. (Read more stress stories.)
