According to a study done by the American Psychological Association, women are more likely to report higher levels of unhealthy stress than men, and stress continues to rise.
What is causing stress?
How does a woman know when they are stressed?
- Feel fatigued
- Feeling nervous or anxious
- Lack of interest or motivation
- Depressed or sad feelings
- Changes in sleeping habits
How do they de-stress?
- Listen to music
- Spend time with friends or family
Women in this study report they are more acutely aware than men of the impact that stress and mental health can have on their physical body, but they are no more likely to be successful when they try to accomplish healthy living goals.
