New Resident De-Stresses in Media
A former California woman moved to Media and lowered her stress level, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Our jobs are stressing us out.
The Wall Street Journal recently reported on a survey from the American Psychological Association which found one-third of employees experience chronic stress related to work and women report higher levels of work stress than men.
Former California resident Kay Keaney, 40, moved to Media when her male-dominated career in the construction industry and her one and half hour commute each way, began to take away from her family.
"There was too much work to be done, and playing the mommy card was bad form," Keaney told WSJ.
Keaney moved her family to Media and now works for a homeopathic products company and is home with her children after school and her stress level is now at zero, she tells WSJ.
High-paying jobs seem to require "selling your soul," she says. "We decided the rat race wasn't really worth it."
