  • I don't believe in the theory of evolution so you lost me early on in the article. - 3/26/2015 2:20:54 PM

    Went to the doctor for my high cholesterol check up yesterday, and found out that I have gained 17 pounds!!! STRESS over the last two months did it. Our daughter's wedding, our son's wedding had a "runaway bride" (so sad), I caught the flu strain that was NOT in the shot this year, my husband retired, my last child at home needs to finish high school. SO what is the solution to all this stress...going BACK on the wagon, logging in to my Spark People again, and exercising, exercising, exercising. - 3/25/2015 9:51:25 AM
  • Gender bias?? Please; the abstract reported the outcomes of the study BASED ON THE DATA. So if the data doesn't support your narrative, the data should be altered?
    That's just nuts. - 3/12/2015 9:41:42 AM

    Tired of tips to relieve stress, reading about how to do something really doesn't change anything, counseling, etc., in the end, you still feel it, and these kinds of articles here and in magazines, etc., really don't do a danged thing, in fact, they stress you out more. - 11/28/2014 11:26:30 AM
  • I find this article to be burdened with cultural gender biases. Heads up, women feel stress at work, just like men. Our stress is not based only on family responsibilities. In fact, some men feel stress associated with family issues as well. Please take your science and review it for the corrupt of preconceived gender roles and expectations. - 9/11/2014 3:20:59 PM

  • There is a large area of stress that wasn't acknowledged in the quiz, for those of us who are caretakers either of an elderly parent or a disabled child or in my case both. Neither of these can be eliminated so although my quiz resulted in at moderate risk for stress, my actual stress level is much higher. - 7/14/2014 8:15:25 AM
  • Good suggestions. - 7/14/2014 5:23:05 AM
  • I am reading this article (and others) while eating my breakfast and watching Lift Every Voice.
    My stress, I believe comes from never feeling like I am good enough for my Mother.

    But.... today, I choose to focus and pleasing GOD and to continue teaching the youth that I can reach out to. - 10/20/2013 10:12:14 AM
  • I really liked this article. Woke up this morning, said my prayers, fixed breakfast for my family and took time to log into Spark, eat and drink my tea.
    Thank you SparkPeople!!! - 9/4/2013 10:27:27 AM
  • Well then, I am screwed!!! - 7/25/2013 2:51:42 PM
  • Exercise is the best stress reliever for me! And I have made good friends at my gym that help each other stay motivated:) - 7/24/2013 11:03:41 AM
  • There is a lot of sound advice in this article, but for me the #1 culprit of unexplained weight gain was CARBOHYDRATES. - 7/24/2013 9:34:03 AM
  • This article is so true. That's how I put on so much weight from stress dealing with family stuff all the time. So now I just go and exercise to stay focus. - 6/29/2013 8:13:05 AM
  • I agree that exercise is a great way to relieve stress. In addition, I have set my phone alarm to remind to sit down, relax, do some breathing techniques as well as meditate. What a Difference!!! - 5/23/2013 1:10:54 PM
