According to The Huffington Post, there are at least seven reasons why I’m so tired. I think I could add a few more. You too? ~Randi
Women Are More Tired Than Men — Here’s 7 Possible Reasons Why
It probably doesn’t come as a shock, but women are more likely than men to be super tired.
A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey released on April 12th indicated that 15 percent of women compared to 10 percent men reported feeling “very tired or exhausted.” And that gap widens when you look at men and women between the ages of 18 and 44 (only 9 percent of men vs. 16 percent of women).
Here are seven (not totally scientific) reasons we think this may be the case:
1. You might be doubling up on the work you do. Although we’ve made strides toward a more equitable division of labor, women still tend to do more hours of housework and child-rearing than men do. So women who work outside of the house as well essentially have two jobs.
2. You have too many weeknight plans. Women are overwhelmingly guilty of trying to be everything to everyone. We often expend all of our energy trying to meet every social obligation. It’s probably time to stop doing that.
3. You’re probably chronically stressed out. There’s nothing like a stress-filled week to seriously deplete all of your energy.
