Grand Rapids is the top metro in the country for people looking for balance in their lives.

Grand Rapids ranks No. 1 in a ranking of the “Places where Americans live the most balanced lifestyles,” which was posted last week by MagnifyMoney, a website that provides personal finance advice and reviews of financial products.

The organization ranked the 50 biggest metropolitan areas of the U.S. based on seven measures: commute times; income versus housing cost; income versus number of work hours; income inequality; health conditions; amount of sleep; and cost of consumer goods and services compared to the national average.
