HOMEOWNERS ARE MORE LIKELY TO LOOK AFTER THEIR PROPERTY THAN THEIR OWN PHYSICAL HEALTH DURING THE FALL SEASON.

{VO}

THAT’S ACCORDING TO A SURVEY OF 2,000 AMERICANS CONDUCTED BY ONEPOLL ON BEHALF OF MDLIVE. 

RESULTS SHOW NEARLY THREE QUARTERS OF HOMEOWNERS WILL (71%) PRIORITIZE TASKS LIKE WINTERIZING THEIR HOMES AND CARS, WHEREAS ONLY ABOUT THREE IN FIVE (57%) FOCUS ON STAYING HEALTHY DURING THAT TIME.  

THAT COULD BE DUE TO THE FACT THAT HALF (51%) SAY DURING THE FALL, THEY’D NEED AT LEAST FIVE MORE HOURS PER WEEK TO COMPLETE THEIR TO-DO LISTS. 

FOR PARENTS (26%) AND HOMEOWNERS (25%) THAT NUMBER JUMPS UP TO NINE EXTRA HOURS PER WEEK.

MONEY MAY ALSO BE A FACTOR AS RESULTS ALSO SHOWED THAT RESPONDENTS EXPRESS MORE CONCERN ABOUT THEIR FINANCES (72%) THAN THEIR OWN WELL-BEING (59%).
