To Stress Disorders?
Anne Devereux-Mills, Chief Strategy
Officer of Lantern, and previously Stanford's Executive Director of
Healthy Body Image Programs, spent 25-years observing women in a
corporate environment. What she noticed was that the very internal
monologue that drives successful women to the top of their fields
also makes them susceptible to stress and anxiety-related disorders.
according to a new study by Lantern, women are 11% more stressed and
16% more anxious than their male counterparts, resulting from these

Common Hassles Can Get You Down
Studies by psychologists show that the ordinary hassles (those
trifling irritations people have to endure), cause psychological
psychosomatic symptoms — depression, anger, low morale,
stomachache, low energy, and fatigue.
What can you do to
overcome hassles? Be prepared to make a few changes and learn to
live with less perfection ... since there isn't enough time, energy,
or money for most of us to have it all. And give yourself strokes.
Live in the moment and enjoy the everyday positive experiences
you have — like completing a task, eating out, getting along
with a friend or colleague, or taking a week-end jaunt to a favorite
destination. All of these experiences will make you feel good, and
can help offset the ill effects of the hassles.
