There’s that ugly word again.  Yet I know there are times you feel like you’re on a stage playing a variety of roles! Do you think about what a great mother or grandmother you are and then see yourself on the dance floor doing a magnificent tango with a dark, handsome, sophisticated stranger? Do you stretch and pull in your yoga class, and then go out and have a chocolate covered cinnamon bun?

Sometimes this topsy-turvy world of ours takes its toll, so I thought it a good time to discuss stress and what it means to you.

Good stress spurs you on and bad stress debilitates you. Stress is the amount of wear and tear on your body. Too much stress results in burnout. Bad stress comes from high demand and low control. When you have no say in something that is important to you, stress results. So you need the following coping mechanisms:

  1. Develop your sense of humor.
  2. Keep a log of who and what stresses you the most.
  3. Listen to your own body and mind.
  4. Try painting, exercising, stroking your pet or some other fun thing.

Dr. Gayle Carson, Chief S.O.B. has announced the 2018b Spunky Broad of the Year.  And she is Dolly Parton, a prime example of what a woman over 50 can still achieve.

An extraordinary businesswoman, out of this world entertainer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, and a philanthropist, Dolly Parton is a testament to what women can achieve.  At 72, she is continuing to have massive influence in the world of entertainment and her Dollywood Theme Park continues to thrive with new exhibits and attractions that the public adores.

Married to her husband for over 50 years, she is an example of someone who blends family and professional life with amazing dexterity and humor.  A Spunky Old Broad is someone who distinguishes herself by her uniqueness, intellect, enthusiasm, dedication, selflessness and spunky. Dolly certainly epitomizes all of those.

Dr. Gayle says “Women over 50 are like fine wine.  They only get better with age and I am delighted to have Dolly Parton as our Spunky Old Broad of the Year.” 

Gayle also says “I started the S.O.B, movement because I found that women over 50 were thinking that it was all over because they hit the magic number of 50.  I knew that they had everything it took to start new careers, develop a passion into a business and start thinking about putting themselves first.  And I was right. Right now re-invention is the name of the game.

Gayle will be addressing the East Bay Women’s Conference  in California on just that subject next month.
