Mental reprieve: Women who text their partners during office hours reduce their stress, according to research
09/18/2018 // Jessica Dolores // Views

We know that close relationships – like those between married couples – are good for you. You have someone to share your hopes and dreams. You can unburden your problems to someone you trust, someone who will help you get over the hump.

New evidence shows that this positive effect extends to the work place. A California University study revealed that women who text their partners about trivial things, like what's for supper, and weather updates during office hours are less stressed.

The study focused on 75 couples, separated the men form the women, and checked their stress levels.

The results in favor of relationships which were recently published in the Daily Mail, drew attention once more to the benefits of marriage.

Sure, it's just a piece of paper, and it can create a lot of stress. But scientific evidence on the benefits of marriage, besides raising well-adjusted children who don't get into trouble, is mounting. Maggie Gallagher, who co-authors the book The Case for Marriage along with University of Chicago scholar Linda J. Waite, was surprised at seeing a lot of proof to show hat those who are married or are in a relationship with the right person are better off  than people who are single, divorced, or separated.

The key lies in a variety of reasons multi-award-winning psychotherapist Dr. Barton Goldsmith enumerated in the list below:

  • Married couples live longer. They also happen to be happier, and therefore, healthier than their single counterparts.
  • Those who continue to bring more love into their lives enjoy more opportunity, money, and fun. Having someone by your side who is working toward the same goals, reach their dreams faster and easier.

  • Relationships make us better people. It motivates us to reach out to another and do things to make him or her happy. In other words, having a partner brings out the best in us.
  • Married couples and those in relationships can do more things. Two heads are better than one, and four hands can get more things done than two. Remember, there's strength in numbers.
  • It's easier to change for the better. Corrections are easier to take if they come from someone you love and trust than from someone whose ulterior motive may put you on edge. Gentle reminders from your partner may make you less resentful and stubborn because you appreciate them more.
  • There's no such thing as a free lunch. But relationships and marriage allow you to have your cake and eat it too. You do nice things just because, and don't expect anything in return. And you appreciate it when your partner reciprocates in more ways than one.
  • You have double the fun because someone is there to enjoy your favorite things with you. You have dinner, watch a movie, play ball, and stroll along the park together.
  • Romance -- and love -- make you feel warm, hopeful and happy. It gives you emotional security.
  • Knowing that someone has your back all the time makes problems easier to solve. You're less afraid to face challenges and make mistakes because someone will always catch you when you fall. You develop a more positive outlook in life.

Singles and divorcees may disagree. But scientific evidence shows that it's better to go through a rough patch with someone you love than riding the storm by your lonesome.

Just refrain from texting or calling your significant other during office hours. Wait for coffee breaks or the lunch hour to say hello via SMS. It will fight the stress daily work deadlines give. It will also prepare you to face the challenging tasks awaiting you for the rest of the day.
