Better Everyday Podcast Episode #3: How Women Are So Uniquely Affected By Stress

June 29, 2016

facebook banner   Stress: we all know it’s bad, but the reality is there will be some so you need to know how to manage and minimize it. Most women have stress from various sources and it can even seem stressful just thinking about de-stressing. Tell an anxious, stressed woman to sit quietly and meditate and watch her cortisol climb! We know finances, relationships, overwhelm and traffic are stressful, but how about the stresses you don’t even know you’re enduring such as food sensitivities, blood sugar swings, electrolyte imbalances or nutrient deficiencies? Women are uniquely sensitive to all manner of stress in that our hormones get askew very easily. Women, including us, easily fall prey to the pressures of trying to do it all – and look good doing it.  We answer the question: can trying to be healthy stress you out even more? Sarah and Dr Brooke discuss how to keep your quest for health, a better body or following your passion from becoming sources of stress, why women are so susceptible to over doing it and how stress affects women’s hormones in so many interesting ways from PMS to sleep disruptions to breakouts and more. In this episode we will also cover some of our best stress busting tips and give you the inside scoop on how we personally manage our own stress which includes everything from mediating to laughing to watching TV (what??). Tune in, de-stress and learn how to be Better Everyday.
