It isn’t always easy, but being mindful can make all the difference.
As women, we know all about stress. From running a household to working, from chauffeuring children and coordinating extracurricular activities to business meetings, from trying to keep up with friends to trying to keep up with your family, from making sure the bills are paid to making sure homework is done…the list goes on and on.
According to the American Psychological Association, 40% of women report frequent stress – that’s 5% more than men. 83% of women report being stressed out about money – and, again, that’s 5% more than men. And the most frightening statistic: 87% of women reported dramatic increases in stress associated with health problems affecting their families in relationship to the declining economy.
