RealAge reveals deficiency in energy among American women
SAN DIEGO, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- How does she do it? What is it that drives Hillary Clinton despite the physical and emotional strain she's experienced on the campaign trail? That's the question Katie Couric posed to Clinton, who is making a historic presidential bid. Her response? "Pure stamina." The nation's leading health Web site, RealAge.com, recently posed similar questions to its members in a study, which showed how profoundly women crave more physical energy.
March is Women's History Month, a month devoted to celebrating the achievements of women throughout time. But are modern women too tired to make history? Will women sustained by Red Bull and energy bars and prone to maniacal multitasking and Blackberry addictions be tomorrow's visionaries and heroines? If RealAge's recent survey is any indication, history making may not be on most women's "to do" lists.
Indeed, 83% of polled members wish they had more physical and mental energy. Those surveyed clearly believe their daily productivity is linked to their energy levels.
Nevertheless, the energy crisis among modern women appears to be reversible. Almost all of those polled believe that lifestyle changes can produce more energy, and that additional exercise, sleep, and a reduction in stress are the keys to increasing stamina. With RealAge's advice and strategies for lifestyle change readily available, maybe another Rosa Parks, Florence Nightingale, or Hillary Clinton is already finding her energy and her voice.
