Can Coffee Talk Get You Stressed Out?
There's a time-honored tradition of two women getting together to talk about their problems. I call it Coffee Talk, like from SNL back in the day. But according to a new study from Oklahoma State University, it could be bad for both ladies involved!
In the study, researchers found that female friends who listen to each other's problems and then dwell on them without trying to figure out any solution have spikes in the hormone levels that cause stress.
I guess the phenomenon doesn't happen with guys who share their problems, since they're much more solution-oriented where guys will almost always try to end up with a solution.
Agree or Disagree?
And just for laughs, here's Coffee Talk!
