Corporate Women, Better Watch Out

Are you one of those high flying executives waking up in one part of the continent and having dinner in yet another part of the continent? You must be enjoying your job. Women now days are very much focused and career oriented. Along with career comes the money of course, but that is not all. Position brings power, empowerment and a sense of identity.

However those of you who are climbing up the corporate ladder very fast have got to watch out for quite a few things. Fist and foremost is that you tend to get isolated as you reach the top. You no longer fit into the common crowd and there is always a barrier between yourself and your colleagues as well as the team. The same sense very much defines your social circles as well. End of the day one might end up feeling isolated and lonely. So one has to watch out all the time and ensure you remain grounded.

The second factor that one needs to watch out is to safeguard one’s health. The more responsibility you carry, chances are that you will be spending more time working as well as traveling. You have got to give attention to your body. It is quite easy to put on weight and turn obese due to lack of exercising. It is also very important to drink plenty of fluids. You need to consume at least three liters of water everyday. This will not only avoid dehydration but also flush out all the toxic chemicals and bacteria out of your body and thereby keep your body healthy.

Very often men and women who work constantly under pressure as well as those who drink less of fluids find themselves inviting yeast infection. Yeast infection is caused by microscopic fungi called Candida albicans. Normally in women the infection occurs in the vaginal passage. In the vagina there exist harmful bacteria and micro organisms as well as good bacteria such as lactobasicilli. These good bacteria fight the other harmful bacteria and keep their growth under control. Further with the body fluids going out frequently the microorganisms too get flushed out thus maintaining the vaginal passage healthy and free from infection.

Often due to stress and the hormonal reactions in the body, as well as lack of fluids and sweating etc, the candida albicans find the environment appropriate to grow unchecked. When this happens there results yeast infection. The onset of infection is characterized by severe itching, burning sensation and pain during urination as well as inflammation. If left untreated, it can spread into other parts of the body and affect the kidneys too. One tends to develop fever with the increasing infection.

Though the treatment options are available, you may not want to suffer from this infection and remain grounded especially when you are on an important assignment. The treatment would entail a course of topical nystatin or fluconazole , clotrimazole, and topical ketoconazole.

Once you get the infection and are cured, it does not mean that the same condition will not repeat. If your stress levels increase and coupled with many other conditions, you can invite repeated infections umpteen number of times unless you are careful enough. It makes sense to take preventive action and ensure you maintain good body hygiene, keep your immunity levels high and look after your health than cut a sorry figure by falling sick all the time.
