Gossip your way to destress.

Posted by: admin on: February 13, 2012

It is always said that if a women is allowed to talk, half her ailment reduces. This seems true since a study shows gossiping relieves stress.


Women love a good gossip, and now we don’t need to feel guilty as scientists claim idle chit-chat benefits both the gossiper and society.

The team from the University of California, Berkeley say gossiping can help control bad behaviour, prevent someone being exploited and even lower stress levels.

The study focused on pro-social gossip where those passing on information are warning others about untrustworthy or dishonest people.

‘We shouldn’t feel guilty for gossiping if the gossip helps prevent others from being taken advantage of,’ says lead author Matthew Feinberg.

‘Gossip gets a bad rap,’ says Mr Willer. ‘But we’re finding evidence that it plays a critical role in the maintenance of social order.’
