Being able to have some alone time is very important. Recharging your batteries in peace lets you get back on your feet and face responsibilities with a smile on your face.
As a new parent, alone time is the rarest thing, as the little ones require attention almost 24/7. All most parents want is some peace and quiet, if only for a minute.
Parents do what they can to get some time alone, and according to a new study, men take refuge in the bathroom, writes the site Ladbible.
For a parent, everyday life consists of many responsibilities. Buying groceries, work, pick up the kids, cook, clean, and so on. On top of that, you must do everything with a smile on your face. Therefore, it’s very important to have some alone time, which is easier said than done. Men, however, seem to have found their sanctuary – the bathroom.
Spend around seven hours a year in the bathroom
According to a study that surveyed 1,000 men, it turns out that men on average spend around seven hours a year in the bathroom – without actually using the toilet.
According to the study, the main reasons for escaping to the bathroom were to get away from a nagging partner, children and avoiding chores.
“The bathroom is the sanctuary of our home”
“It’s very much a sanctuary, somewhere we can cut ourselves off from the outside world, albeit just temporarily. Peace and quiet are sacred and clearly, men take the opportunity to get this whenever they can – often in the bathroom,” said a spokesman from the company that conducted the study.
However, recharging batteries in the toilet seems to be vital for men. According to the study, as many as 25% of men stated that without toilet visits, they don’t know how they would manage.
Although it might not apply to all men, now I understand where my husband disappears to when it’s cleaning day!
