Life hands you lemons. Think quick, how do you deal with them? Do you make lemonade, or throw them at your friends? Do you worry about having too many lemons to weigh you down or decide an abundance of lemons is okay?

Stress is a little like that, to me anyways. There’s no way to avoid daily stress or symptoms of stress really, but you can sort of balance it out. Build in daily activities like meditation, yoga, exercise and hydration. Take care of yourself, fuel your body with healthy foods and tackle the challenges as they come at you.


Women in general are constantly faced with new pressures and responsibilities. It can be tricky trying to juggle work, healthy living, family and social life. In fact, one of the best speakers I ever heard on this topic was Arlene Dickinson of The Dragon’s Den who told a room full of female entrepreneurs that balance doesn’t exist when building a business. That resonated with me.

Whether it’s business related, parenting exhaustion or personal struggles, it’s safe to say many women go through similar challenges. Daily stress is unavoidable. At some point you roll with the punches so to speak and also learn how to cope with the ups and downs of life.

Sharing knowledge and experiences with other women is a powerful way to learn about health and well-being. I’ve put together a few facts about women’s health and the impact of daily stress on your body just to get the conversation started.


A Focus on Women’s Health

  • Many of us feel stressed from time to time. Did you know routine stress can take a toll on your body? If you’ve been having trouble with your digestion, frequent headaches, sleeplessness or just feeling irritable, stress may be the culprit. Assess your day-to-day routine to see if there are things you can do to reduce your daily stress levels, like carving out time that’s just for you or making a conscious choice to say “no” when you really don’t have the time for a new task.


  • Is hair a big part of your personal identity? As you get older, you might find your hair is getting weaker. To help maintain the health of your hair, try a supplement like Priorin. Named the world’s best-selling nonprescription hair and beauty supplement in 2017, Priorin can help you achieve visibly fuller and stronger hair in as early as 12 weeks, so you can look and feel great.


  • Did you know the common yeast infection is actually caused by some of the organisms present in the vagina? A weak immune system, pregnancy and oral birth-control pills are a few things that make women more prone to yeast infections (read more here). Though it might be common, it shouldn’t be left untreated. Canesten’s CanesOral Combi-Pak is a single-dose oral treatment that you can take anytime, anywhere and the external cream gives you fast relief of itching and burning.


  • A basic pillar of your self-care is health monitoring and talking to your doctor about which tests and exams you will need at each new stage of life. Turning 50 soon? Here’s everything you need to know about health monitoring. Pap smears, breast exams, skin checks, dental check-ups and eye exams are examples of basic tests you should talk to your doctor about.


Time Travel

Daily stress doesn’t need to ruin your health. Build healthy activity and nutrition into every single day and when you need occasional support remember these tips.
