This is the best strategy for reducing stress. No matter how energetic and talented you are, no woman is an island. Humans are designed for interchange and mutual dependence. Seeking help and delegating are ways you ensure that you don’t overtax yourself (which often leads to unwanted eating).

Workhorses need to be strong, but people should be flexible. Healthy means knowing when you can do something yourself and when you can’t. It involves changing your mind if you made the wrong decision and reveling in the fact that people can and will help you.
