When we think about women and stress, the two go together like peanut butter and jelly. Modern women fill many roles within the household than their counterparts just 30 years ago.
Women today face a great deal of stress balancing work, home, children, aging parents, finances, paying for college… all while keeping their marriage/relationship in a positive place.
The bad news is that as we age, the feelings we experience from all these stressors have a significant impact on the way we age including muscle loss, weight gain, slower metabolism, poor skin texture and deepening wrinkles — all signs of accelerated aging.
The good news is we can take action to ease the effects of stress which inevitably helps to delay the aging process, so we can stay healthy and active for a long time for our families!
In this article, we’ll define stress, discuss its impact on our bodies, and explore what we can do to relieve ourselves from it and stop the vicious cycle of accelerated aging.
