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.
