Women Are Most Relaxed When Their Husbands Help With Housework
What?? I don't know about you, but I get a little more stressed when my husband starts helping out with household chores. Apparently I am the only one who feels this way because USA Today says that in a recent study done by the team at UCLA women's stress levels are lowest when they team up with their husband to tackle the work around the house.
For men, it's the opposite . . . their stress level is the lowest when they're kicking back and relaxing while their wives do everything.
The researchers say it happens because women almost look at joint housework as a SOCIAL OCCASION. They're used to doing housework alone, so it's actually kind of refreshing when they have someone else involved.
For men, it's different. When they see their wives doing housework, they actually feel like she's BUSY, which gives them time to relax. That must be why guys are naturally relaxed and when are naturally stressed out...just sayin.
Would you rather have your husbands hep with the housework or would you rather just do it yourself?
