Stress Management for Women 

She rises in the morning feeling more tired than the night before - filled with dread for what the day may hold.  Reluctantly, she drags herself out of bed.  Looking at the clock, she realizes she overslept and makes a mad dash for the shower.   

Three outfits later, she still has not found what she wants to wear.  Getting her favorite blue dress on was a challenge on its own, now it won’t zip.  “I knew I should have laid out my clothes from last night.”  Finally, she’s found something that fits.  “This will have to do.” she says.

“No time for breakfast, I’ll just grab something on the way”, almost tripping over the fancy exercise equipment she bought that she hardly ever uses.  Out the door she bolts and hops in her car, to join the growing line of traffic on the highway.

“Pheww!  Now if only the cars aheaad of me would simply disappear, that’d be great”.

And that's just the start of her day.

Do you know this woman?

Does her story sound familiar?

Is she you?

Stress Management ... so what's the big deal?

Stress can be defined as a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances.  More and more women have reported feeling higher levels of stress just trying to strike a balance between work and home life.

If not properly managed, it can wreak havoc on your health and well-being - it may even cost you your life.  

Stress can lead to:

  • Increased blood pressure and heart rate, higher cholesterol, and risk of heart attack - heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds
  • Mood issues, including anger and depression, lack of energy, and sleep issues
  • Increased fat storage, especially around your mid-section and disrupted hunger cues (not being able to tell if you are truly hungry or full) leading to overeating
  • Aches and pains in the joints and muscles
  • Reduced ability to fight and recover from illness due to lowered immunity
  • Digestive issues including, stomach cramps, acid reflux, and nausea
