Women who work long hours are more likely than men to indulge in unhealthy behaviour such as snacking, smoking and drinking caffeine, a study has found.

A Leeds University team found men and women respond very differently to working long hours - with the greatest impact being on women.

All I know is that sometimes I would like to be able to leave it all and relax for a few months (just about 10 per year) -- too much stress -- my hair got all gray -- no time to exercise, oh how I wish I could be a house wife again....lots of work yes but less stress...

Well....that explains why I smoke and drink excessively!!!

On a serious note, I rub shoulders with a lot of female business owners like myself. There is this strange belief that you've got to work all hours God sends to be successful. I believe, for males and females, thats an easy route to stress related illnesses and an early burnout! I take an hour out of each day to go to the gym and look after me. I believe I walk back into the office recharged and ultimately 10 times more productive because I've recharged my batteries!

I think it has the opposite effect on me - the more i work the less i eat - When I'm not working then i snack more!

I don't believe there is any measurable difference between men and women in running a business. If anything it is the nature and well being of the business and the degree to which its owner is aware of where and how it is going that is a recipe for a stress free business life, whoever they may be.
