woman stress home

by Carolyn Thomas  @HeartSisters

We now know that chronic stress is a very real risk factor in developing heart disease. And stress in the home – where, ironically, we all long to find a safe place to fall – can be the most insidious and difficult to address, especially for families with children still at home, and for women suffering from Type E personalities:  Everything to Everybody”. Sound familiar? 

One of my favourite magazines, Heart Healthy Living, has an online quiz this month to assess how your family life may actually be hurting your heart.  Answer these quiz questions honestly to reveal how your family handles mealtime behaviour, household chores, grocery shopping, finances, weekend plans, family arguments and more.
