Women Feel the Stress of Household Duties and Work

Women Feel the Stress of Household Duties and Work

According to a report in the British Food Journal, three-quarters of British women still do most of the household food shopping and cooking. The study can be duplicated here in the United States where food shopping and other household duties are part of the everyday demands, and this is the case whether a woman has a full-time job or not. It brings up a growing health issue for women. Many women feel tremendous stress trying to do multiple jobs and ultimately feeling that they are not succeeding. They believe they’re not doing anything quite well. The bottom line is women need to have realistic goals and understand that many jobs, especially things you do at home, are almost never successfully completed. It is important to keep things in perspective and not to be too tough on yourself. From a psychological standpoint, and a standpoint of dealing with stress, these issues are important and really need to be looked at.

There is a psychological, an emotional, and a physical component with working and all of those things need to be considered. One of the biggest strides you can take as a woman who is working is to understand that you don’t have to be perfect. You try to do the best you can, but realize that you are undertaking quite a few stresses all at once and you can only do the best you can to deal with it and not be overwhelmed.

Study Shows Women of Young Children Eat More Calories

Are you having a struggle with weight loss? Well, now you have someone to blame.

In addition, both parents were less active than those of the same age without children. The study was not a small one. There were over 1,500 adults with children younger than five and according to the report which is in the journal Pediatrics, mothers in this study with young children had a diet so poor, they’d have to walk three miles a day to not gain a pound.

A Fascinating Study of Baby Cradling and Maternal Stress

A Fascinating Study of Baby Cradling and Maternal Stress

A British study in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry suggests that mothers who cradled their baby on the right side may be struggling with extreme stress. The study suggests that baby cradling habits may indicate whether the stress could become increasingly hard to handle and lead to depression. As many as ten percent of new mothers develop postpartum depression. Identifying warning signs could potentially help health care providers identify mothers who might be prone to emotional difficulties. The majority of mothers prefer to cradle their baby on the left side.
