Buying or selling a house could be a stressful business indeed after a new study revealed that the stress associated with such a move would make you feel at least two years older.
The study was commissioned by online conveyancing firm In-Deed and polled over 200 people who had either bought or sold a house in the last three months.
AdvertisementThe researchers found that over 66 percent of the respondents said that the experience had aged them with a number of people showing various signs of aging such as no sex (20 percent), short term memory loss (14 percent) and hair loss (10 percent).
Stating that prolonged stress can lead to premature aging, lead researcher Dr Glenn Wilson said, "Periods of prolonged stress and anxiety can seriously take their toll on our well-being, with depression, weight loss and premature ageing a likely outcome."
