We live in a stressful world, and navigating the demands of work and family life can make it all the more so. It’s fair to say that most of us have some degree of stress that we deal with on a daily basis. In fact, around 86% of working women in the US report having physical or mental symptoms associated with stress.
For some, the effects of stress take a bigger toll than others. Anxiety, depression, mental fatigue and insomnia are increasingly prevalent and can have a big impact on your overall well-being.
But stress isn’t the only culprit. Mood changes and sleep disturbances can also occur as a result of fluctuating hormones, such as in premenstrual tension, pregnancy or postpartum, and perimenopause. These hormonal changes are common causes of mood and sleep disruptions and are easily treated.
