Stress Management for the Working Woman

Episode 19–Stress Management for the Working Woman

Learning how to manage stress is a key factor to living your best life.

Research shows that chronic stress can cause a number of negative effects on our health including problems with anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, weight gain or loss, cognitive impairment, gastrointestinal issues, infertility problems, as well as other illnesses. 

Special guest, Nwandi Lawson, a media professional and business woman, mother, and spiritually conscious individual, shares how she integrates faith with the physical to help manage the inevitable stresses of life as a busy working woman.

We discuss relaxation techniques, practicing mindfulness, and a variety of other things that women can do for self-care. We also talk about additional resources women can access for help.
