"This is because getting kids ready, preparing meals and other household works leave men really tired."
New York, May 24 - Know why some people find workplace a blessing in disguise and shudder at the thought of spending weekends at home?

Juggling household chores means a day at the office seems easier in comparison, he added.

For the study, 122 men and women were asked to swab their saliva six times a day for three days to test stress levels.

For most of test participants, cortisol levels were higher at home than at work.

This is because getting kids ready, preparing meals and other household works leave men really tired.

The only exception in the study were high-income workers who had equal levels of stress at work and at home.
