PHOENIX (CBS5/CNN) -

Think you're stressed?

A new survey finds that Americans are reporting less stress than they were a few years ago.

The survey by the American Psychological Association finds that people did not report as much stress last year as they did in 2007.

No one knows the reasons why, but experts believe that high stress could have now become the new normal.

Seventy-five percent of respondents cited a lack of money as a stressor.

Two-thirds also mentioned work stress.
