- Men who do household chores tend to live happier and longer
- A doctor in Taiwan said that a study showed doing chores lead to a healthy lifestyle
- Doing chores can be an alternative to other physical activities
A recent study showed that men who tend to do household chores are happier and live a healthy life than those who do not.
KAMI learned that according to Dr. Huang Wei Li from Taiwan, being a husband who helps with household chores have three benefits such as higher emotional quotient (EQ), a healthier body, and healthy lifestyle.
In a report by the Good Times (author Aina Najihah), if a husband comes home from work and decides to do chores, it can imply that they are emotionally intelligent and know how to deal with stress. They can also empathize with their partner which can benefit their relationship in the long run.
Dr. Li also mentioned that doing chores instead of going out after office hours may indicate a healthy lifestyle.
“Washing clothes, mopping floors, doing the dishes, these are all forms of exercises and they are great to be done especially after dinner,” he said.
“Don’t just sit on the sofa and watch television. After sitting in your office for a long time, it is best to move around by doing the household chores which will reduce your risk of getting cardiovascular disease,” he added.
Dr. Li noted that doing household chores are the “best alternatives” in being active even at home.
