Number of women who reported being somewhat, very or extremely stressed in a recent survey from life insurer Aviva USA and the Mayo Clinic. The survey looked at the relationship between women’s financial situations, stress and overall health. About 82% of the women said they were uncomfortable with their financial situation, and 58% of women reported weight gain in the previous 10 years; that number jumped to 68% among extremely stressed women. At the same time, nearly 4 out 5 women considered themselves to be in good health. “By finding ways to help manage stress, reduce or maintain weight and develop sound financial plans, women can further enhance their sense of overall health and well-being,” says Chris Jones, Aviva USA’s chief marketing officer.
