As unemployment hovers around 10%, the last thing you want if you suffer from PCOS is extra stress from worrying about whether you’ll still have a job next month.
Pressures from that kind of stress, as well as the everyday demands of work, raise the chance of PCOS women developing metabolic syndrome (syndrome x) – a cluster of increased risks for cardiovascular disease, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
So fight back with these suggestions:
Make yourself as useful and conscientious as possible at work but set strict boundaries between work and the rest of your life. Define where the line is between home and work. Do a good job each day but whenever possible leave work behind in the evening.
Focus on whatever you are doing at the moment. Being physically present doesn’t achieve results at work unless you are mentally and emotionally present as well. Concentrate completely on the task in hand and you’ll reduce your workload more efficiently, thus appearing to be more of an asset to your boss.
Take time for rest and recovery. Taking care of yourself is an investment that pays off professionally as well as personally.
