During this pandemic, a large majority of people globally are facing all kinds of stress due to many circumstances. It could be work, family, mentality expectations, and more.

In a global survey done by Snapchat,  a total of 8,202 respondents across five APAC countries – Malaysia, Japan, Australia, Indonesia, and India were studied.

According to a press release from Snapchat, when compared to the other countries, it is said that Snapchat users in Asia Pacific and Malaysia are unique as they have a strong desire for authenticity in their offline and online personas and are also striving to use multiple tools to create impact and initiate change in this world.

However, as we are facing a pandemic, 49 per cent of Malaysian Snapchat users are feeling stressed on a weekly basis while on the other hand, 73 per cent of them feel stressed monthly. 77 per cent of Malaysian Snapchat users feel like they are expected to grow up and act like adults even at a young age (highest among the five other APAC countries surveyed). 66 per cent of the total number of Malaysian respondents are stressed about Covid-19, followed by worrying about money (61 per cent), not getting enough sleep (54 per cent), and school or work (49 per cent).

Malaysian Snapchat users were also asked what their measure of success is and 94 per cent of them said financial independence. However, 77 per cent of them also think of mental health as an important contributing factor.

With the vaccine being distributed worldwide, we now see a glimmer of hope that we can escape this pandemic soon. We would just like to encourage all Malaysians to hold on a little longer before we all get out of this eventually!
