Stress & Coping

How do you manage it all?

We've all heard the saying, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." At North Kansas City Hospital we recognize this old saying to still be true. If women are not taking care of themselves, they cannot take care of the others in their lives—children, spouse or even aging parents.

Women need to find time for themselves—to care for their mind, body and spirit. Too many women ignore the early signs of illness in order to take care of others. But what if it isn't a physical symptom? Where do you turn to for help when you need to talk with someone?
