Dr. Scherwitz describes how a woman can lower the stress in her life.
Women should know that they have the ability to reduce stress because most of the stress that we create, we create ourselves. We put demands upon ourselves, we overtax ourselves, so women should give themselves permission to be a friend to themselves, to take time out to do something fun, to relax, to have time with their friends, to meditate or do yoga or Tai Chi or anything that takes them out of the work demand situation and lets them process all the things that are coming in and all the tasks they need to do.
