The Most Stressful Job for Women is . . . Stay-At-Home Mom

This one’s for all the women dreaming about the day you can drop out of the rat race and just stay at home raising kids.  About three months in, you’re going to WISH you still had a boss yelling at you.

A new study from the University of Washington found that THE most stressful job for women is being a stay-at-home mom.  Stay-at-home moms did WORSE on mental health assessments in the study compared to moms who still have careers.

Not that it was easy for working moms, either.  Mothers who still worked were a little less stressed than stay-at-home moms . . . but still exhibited some signs of depression.

In other words:  Basically ALL moms are bummed out about trying to balance their life, family, work, and mental health.  Have a great week!
