Whether it is in movies or in real life, women have been associated with the stay at home and do household chores stereotype. But to those men who are concerned about their overall health, this might make them help their wives out more.
Dr. Huang Wei Li, a doctor based in Taiwan says a recent study suggests that men who help out with household chores tend to live longer than those who don’t.
Men who also help out tend to have higher levels of emotional quotient (EQ), a healthier body, and healthier lifestyle.
Good Times Magazine says that a husband is emotionally intelligent and knows how to handle stress if they help out doing chores after arriving from work.
This also benefits the relationship in the long run because they have the ability to empathize.
Furthermore, Huang added, “Washing clothes, mopping floors, doing the dishes, these are all forms of exercises and they are great to be done especially after dinner.”
Huang also said that men who do chores instead of hanging out with friends after work indicate a healthy lifestyle.
“Don’t just sit on the sofa and watch television. After sitting in your office for a long time, it is best to move around by doing the household chores which will reduce your risk of getting cardiovascular disease.”
Being active at home is good because you exercise and at the same time contribute to cleaning.
Dogs, according to historians, were the first animals humans domesticated. So the history between the two go way back.
They’ve been called man’s best friend and here’s a scenario that proves this.
Marie Jhoanna posted photos in a Facebook group showing a key attached to her dog’s collar.
She also posted a photo of a note on her front door saying, “Yung susi na kay Butter.”
She captioned the post, “Yung ang taba ng utak ng pinsan ko”.
Apparently her cousin went out and left the keys to the house attached to the dog’s collar. Whether her cousin thought it was easier for Marie to find the keys or it would be safer from thieves remains unanswered.
Netizens found it to be funny, but some were worried that some stranger might have hurt the dog to get the keys.

MANILA, Philippines- After opening up his Nueva Ecija house to the media to clarify issues surrounding it, Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Alan Purisima is still receiving negative criticisms.
Purisima was involved in a controversy after the discovery of his 4.7- hectare property in San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija’s valued at P3,750,000 in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN) in 2013.
“As reporters could see, this property is no mansion by any standard. It is an ordinary house, as ordinary as the other concrete houses that you would see in the neighborhood. By inviting the media, it is my hope that some questions related to my property would be put to rest, ” Purisima said.
“Not an ordinary house”
However, many members of the media allowed inside the PNP chief’s house don’t agree with his description.
One reporter commented: “It may be an ordinary house by General Purisima’s standard. But to us, it’s a dream house.”
Even Senator Sergio Osmena III does not believe Purisima’s claims.
During his ANC interview with Karen Davila he said: “That’s a well-designed house. You can see the design so clean, and the interiors are of very high quality. The swimming pool alone I estimate would cost at least P500,000.”
He added that the gazebo, which Purisima claimed costs between P17,000 to P18,000 to construct, looked similar to the designs of resorts in Panglao and Boracay.
“No way! One pole there would cost P17,000. One pole. Those are solid, probably apitong or molave.”
What’s inside the ‘ordinary house’?
It was Tito Purisima, cousin of the PNP chief, who briefed the media prior to the tour.
“Tingnan po naten kung ito ay matatawag na mansyon. Pwede po ba naten ihanay ang mga bahay na ito sa mga bahay sa Forbes Park.”
In the report of journalist Chiara Zambrano for ANC, solar powered lamp posts were spotted on the way to the main house.
The reporter also noticed that the gazebo’s roof is made of anahaw and its posts are made of driftwood. Its floor seemingly look like tisa tiles. The gazebo was also able to accommodate all the media men in the tour.
The 90-sqm two-storey guesthouse has a bar, patio, pond with koi fish, and an unmaintained kiddie pool.
The 240-sqm main house has a market value of P2.3 million, according to Purisima. It has five rooms and a loft. You can also see a wooden dining table, wine collection, and coffee shop mugs collection from around the world. Its kitchen has a hybrid refrigerator and stove made in Italy.
The house has solar-powered water heaters.
