It’s exceptionally difficult to eat when juggling so many things, so some women tend to eat erratically and often badly, mostly craving the comfort of high fat and high carbohydrate foods. Women older than 55 years have higher cholesterol levels than men, and at all ages have a greater incidence of impaired glucose tolerance tests, which is the diagnosis for diabetes mellitus. In addition, women are having children at older ages, leading to all sorts of risks and increased complications.
Decrease the amount of alcohol intake – women should never have more than two standard drinks per day and should try to have at least one or two alcohol free days per week.
Finally, every juggler needs good time management. The working woman should take a look at her day and see what activities can be grouped together. Is there a better way to school or work? How can she give herself an extra half an hour per day?
With such an active lifestyle and the associated potential risk factors, it is vital that working women have risk products to provide an income stream or pay off major debts in the event of the unexpected.
