Study: People More Stressed At Home Than At Work

Health Matters on 965 Jack FM: Tips for a better life. But remember, we’re not doctors!

Get this: people are more stressed out at home than they are at work. A new study from researchers at Penn State University finds that a majority of people’s levels of cortisol, a hormone released in response to stress, are significantly lower when they are at their workplace than when they in their own residence.

Many factors are involved but the study says that paid work is more valued in society and household work is monotonous. Therefore, your stress level depends on where you feel most useful.  Thus, disgruntled workers feel more stress at work.

More on the stress study here at CBS Seattle.
