3 Ways to Avoid Being a Nag (Not That You Are One, of Course!)
Bad news, ladies. Experts for the Wall Street Journal insist that women are more likely to nag than men. We know it sounds like a terrible stereotype, but the reasoning behind the ladies-who-nag phenomenon makes a lot of sense — so hear us out, won’t you?
The article explains that women are more prone to nagging — the state when you are constantly reminding your loved one to do things but it seems like nobody’s listening — because we are “conditioned to feel more responsible for managing home and family life.” (And we thought it was just us!)
So if you’re worried that your own good intentions and hard-wiring have made you somewhat of a nag, here are some ways you can curb it!
Post-It Notes Rather than having to have a showdown over something small, a simple one-word note that says “trash” or “laundry” can say everything that needs to be said.
Pitch In If someone forgot to get something done, try doing it for them! The good will might go a lot further than you think!
Calm Down It’s likely that you are getting frustrated over having to remind your loved one about little things, when they are pitching in all over the place. Remember the reasons why you love your loved ones — and all the other things they do for you.
