New Study Findings: 60 percent of women report feeling stressed during everyday life

"New Study Findings: 60 percent of women report feeling stressed during everyday life "Nearly two-thirds of women, 60 percent, said they feel stressed during their everyday life, according to a Healthy World Report released today by TeleVox entitled A Stressed Nation: Americans Search for a Healthy Balance. Without successful management of stress, women face a variety of negative side effects. According to A Stressed Nation, 58 percent of women reported that stress is negatively impacting their health. And an even higher number, 65 percent, of healthcare providers said that stress is negatively impacting their patients’ lives.

Eighty-eight percent of doctors said they would recommend exercise as a tool to combat stress. This needs to be communicated more from doctor to patient, however, because according to A Stressed Nation, only 57 percent of women said their doctor has suggested exercise as a way to control their stress level.

Study Highlights

• All Work, No Play: 60 percent of women reported stress during their everyday life, while 64 are stressed during a typical workday.

• Communication Is Key: Two-thirds (66 percent) of providers said that emails, text messages, or phone calls with personalized tips from doctors between visits would help patients better manage their overall health, including their stress level.

• Negative Effects: More than half of women (58 percent) and nearly two-thirds of providers (65 percent) said that stress is negatively affecting the health of women.

• More Active, Less Stressed: 88 percent of doctors said they would recommend exercise as a tool to combat stress, while just 57 percent of women said their doctor has suggested exercise as a way to control their stress level.

“Healthcare providers across America need to step up and help patients better manage their levels of stress” said Scott Zimmerman, President of TeleVox. “By leveraging technology to stay engaged with patients between office visits, doctors can provide patients with the support necessary to implement changes that will result in a less stressed lifestyle.”
