Worried Women

Major survey finds women 'drinking, confused, avoiding mirrors': “They are stressed, confused about diet and don’t exercise, an Australian Women’s Weekly survey of 15,000 women says.”

15, 000 women is a lot of women and to get a response like this from the pretty solid Women’s Weekly is a big compliment to them, but the picture sounds very depressing. It sounds like women are not coping and it sounds like they are overwhelmed and down on themselves. They sound depressed, isolated and unable to manage. If this is true we need to do something because we obviously have got it wrong and the lifestyle choices we keep promoting for women may not be what they need or want. Women are going to have to start talking out loud and then going for what makes them happy…and that is generally good connections with others and time to value that.
