People often ask themselves what can be really stressing for a women. In a survey conducted by Today, which interviewed more than 7,000 moms from the United States, they found that on average, most moms would rate their stress levels at an 8.5 out of 10.
According to the same study done by Today, almost half the mothers (46 percent) found that their husbands caused them more stress than their children did!
The survey found that most mothers became stressed and irritated when they don’t have enough time in the day to perform all the tasks that needed to be done.
Moreover, 75 percent of the participants stated that they did most of the parenting and household duties in the family.
And finally, People who conducted the research in that Today survey found that 1 in every 5 mothers said that a major source of daily stress was a lack of help from their significant other.
According to the University of Padova, these stress levels actually play a role later in life within the marriages as well as in health and longevity.
These researchers found that later in life when the wife passes away, the husband’s health tends to deteriorate while when a wife loses her husband she tends to become healthier and shows improvement in dealing with stress and depression.
