A new survey ranks Los Angeles fourth on its list of "America's Most Stressed Out Cities." The study was conducted by the Princess Cruises "Life Balance Barometer."The top-five most stressed out cities are Chicago, Houston, Boston, Los Angeles and San Diego.

At the other end of the scale, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Las Vegas, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Miami are said to have the most "life balance."

The Princess Cruises survey was conducted with the help of Harris Interactive. The survey says most Americans try to achieve a balance in their lives, which includes juggling work and their personal priorities.

However, the study concludes only a quarter of people in the U.S. believe they've actually achieved that goal.
