“Routines that put greater demands on the body’s transport system, promote increased cardiovascular efficiency. There are many summer activities women can do to reduce the effects of age/stress on the body.”
– Lyn Bragdon
According to wellness expert, Lyn Bragdon, women are a much greater risk of death and disease if they don’t incorporate the right kind of training into their lifestyle.
The good news: women are working hard and making more money. (In Bangor alone, women’s-to-men’s earnings ratio rose 11.4% since 2015.) The bad news: as women move toward greater income equality, their bodies take a toll. Longer hours and more stress lead to record levels of exhaustion, fatigue, and many other health problems traditionally associated with men.
Today, heart disease has surpassed breast cancer as the leading cause of death among women. 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease, but according to studies, many have no idea. As the gender wage gap narrows, so too does the gender gap for life expectancy. (Previously women outlived men by 10 years, now it is only 5!)
Bragdon is a Maine native who is on a mission to change these declining health statistics starting in her own community of Bangor. As the owner of SuperSlow Zone, she has seen first-hand how wellness routines work to prevent chronic diseases.
