Why Many Women Choose Careers
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many women choose careers, and the fact that they want to hold a job and earn a living often has very little to do with how attractive or unattractive they are. There are often other reasons why women want to focus on a career.

One reason, of course, is money. They want to be able to support themselves. They do not want to burden their family with extra bills. Expenses are not the only reason that many women choose careers, however.

Another reason is a sense of purpose. They want to be valued by their employer. They want a reason to get up in the morning. By being valued by their employer, they will perform better at work, fit in better with their coworkers, get more hours, earn more money, and feel better about themselves.

When women feel good about themselves, they will want to take care of themselves. One thing they will do is watch their weight. Employers are often reluctant to hire heavy people, thinking that the person's extra weight will slow him down and as a result will slow down the company's business. A person who has a healthy weight, on the other hand, will more likely be energetic and productive. By having productive, energetic people as part of its staff, the business will be able to meet its deadlines and succeed.

Another thing that women will do to take care of themselves is keep regular hours. A woman who is holding a job must go to bed early and get up early. She eats an early dinner, relaxes just a bit to help her wind down, and then goes to bed. She will likely be in bed by 10:00 p.m. and then up the next morning getting ready for work by 6:00 a.m.

A third thing that women will do to take care of themselves is exercise regularly. They want to be healthy and feel good. However, many women find reasons to put off exercising. They might be too busy or too tired, for example. When exercise is important to a woman, however, she will find ways to include it in her day. An hour or two-hour-long workout is unnecessary. A ten-minute walk or run done regularly is sufficient. This brief period of exercise will help a woman to watch her weight. It will also help her to manage her stress.

When a woman is stressed out, she will not sleep well. She may lie awake, worrying. She may also toss and turn. When she can manage her stress, on the other hand, she will sleep soundly. A restful sleep will keep her healthy, and it will also help in her relationships. She will be able to talk calmly with people, rather than becoming irritable and snapping at them. She will also be able to think clearly and make good decisions as a result of restful sleep.

Many good things happen when women choose careers. When they find a career that suits them, they can live productive, successful, healthy lives.

Here I was thinking the reason was just to get out of the house. LOL Good article Hollie, in this day and age it is sometimes necessary for women to seek work merely to aid playing the bills at home.
