Yes, Moms, your kids and your job ARE stressing you out!
A British study by researchers from the Universities of Manchester and Essex found that women with two children and a full-time job are significantly more stressed out than others.
The study of 6,000 women took into account work life, blood pressure, hormones, and common triggers of stress.
According to the study, chronic stress was also higher – 40% higher. Chronic stress can cause anxiety, depression, insomnia, and unexplained headaches.
The study may suggest that cutting back on work could help as women with two children but more flexible working schedules experienced less stress. This was even found to be the case for fathers.
