Research has shown the following:
❦ Women who felt their roles were rewarding were significantly more likely to be physically active and not smoke.
❦ Other high reward roles in our lives can help to reduce the negative health effects of stress.
❦ By seeking out more rewarding work opportunities and feeling fulfilled in roles at home, women can counterbalance their stress.
❦ Coping mechanisms such as finding a support system, exercise, healthy eating, and making time for your own needs can all help to reduce your stress level and improve heart health.
