A recent study found that people actually get sick of family after about 4 hours when visiting them for the holidays according to Fox 5 Atlanta.
From Fox 5:
Desperate for a moment of “me” time after a few hours at a familyholiday party? You're not alone, a new report claims.
According to a survey of 2,000 Americans who are traveling to visit loved ones this holiday season, it takes just 3 hours and 54 minutes of socializing with extended kin for the average person to long for peace and quiet. The study was recently commissioned by Motel 6 and conducted by marketing research company OnePoll.
That explains why most people think this is the most stressful time of year. BUT let's not forget what the holidays are about and why it's important to make the most of those memories... One day, you may not get them back.
