According to researcher Sarah Damaske, a professor of labor and employment at Pennsylvania State University, people are more stressed at home. She had 122 people swab their saliva six times a day for three days to test cortisol levels, a biological marker of stress and she found the most relaxing part of most people’s day is when they are on the job.
“Part of this might be women are leaving work and then cooking dinner and doing the dishes,” Damaske says. “Even though men are doing more than they did 30 years ago, it’s still not an even distribution.”
Seriously? This is not good. Let’s meet on the patio at 5pm.
