Iron­ing... the se­cret joy of stressed Bri­tons

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News -

FOR­GET mind­ful­ness and ditch the yoga – iron­ing is the way nearly three out of four peo­ple like to re­lax.

A study of 1,000 Bri­tons found that nearly three-quar­ters of us found the do­mes­tic chore calm­ing, with fold­ing tow­els com­ing in sec­ond spot and pair­ing socks third.

The study, by ho­tel chain Hilton Gar­den Inn, found that 37 per cent of Bri­tons spend two hours or more iron­ing every week, with 70 per cent say­ing they ‘wish’ they had more of it to do.

Tal She­fer, of Hilton Gar­den Inn, said: ‘Our re­search re­veals that iron­ing is one of the na­tion’s top sim­ple plea­sures.’
