Spouse, mother, friend, caregiver, co-worker, cook, housekeeper, household business manager, soccer mom, single mom; not to mention the other activities and organizations that you may be a part of ~~~ and the list goes on!

Oxytocin which has a calming effect during stress and the hormone estrogen, which boosts the effects of oxytocin.

How Stress Affects Your Entire Body
Understand that we all have stress at times. We may have short term stress with everyday events such as making time for errands, planning meals, dealing with homework or running late for work; this kind of stress generally makes us feel worried or anxious.
And then there are other times where we may be facing long-term stress such as chronic disease, life-threatening illness, disability and even divorce. These very stressful events may affect our health on many different levels.
