Think Stress is an Equal Gender Offender, Think Again.

The war or comparisons between the sexes are alive and kicking, especially as it speaks to Stress. Think that your wife overreacts when you forget to take the dog out, or the garbage can to the front? What about your husband, who is glued to the dial and the remote is now surgically inserted into his palm, who is just trying to guard off the stress from a really tough day at the virtual office.

Think again.

Stress effects genders in very profoundly different ways, and to a far different degree. Want to understand “the other sex” when it comes to stress, so you don’t lose it at the dinner table.

Read this wonderful Wall Street Journal article by Sue Shellenbarger about how stress impacts both genders in different ways and to different degrees. I was honored to provide a few quotes for the piece as well.
