KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- According to a new study by Lantern, women are 11 percent more stressed and 16 percent more anxious than their male counterparts.
The difference results from three key drivers:
- The desire to be “perfect” and fear of “falling short”
- The strong will required to stand up for their ideas that can also lead to an unforgiving view of themselves
- The belief that if they are not constantly marking off tasks they will fall behind
Family psychologist Amy Shoffner of Northland Behavioral Health and Wellness stopped by the FOX 4 morning show to weigh in on women and stress. Shoffner even shared a few tips on how to reduce stress.
