While we may strive for equality in society, if you’re a working woman, you may often find yourself saying “It’s a man’s world.” According to The Guardian, in the UK men earn £26.54 an hour compared to women who earn £18.32.
It’s this unfair dispute among genders that adds more pressure on women to work harder in the workplace. With role models like international superstar Beyoncé and American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour already showing the world how successful the fairer sex can be, it seems strange that a woman’s abilities are still being questioned while at work.
The workplaces are stressful enough as it is without the need for added competition between genders. Sadly, we can’t change the pressure you’re experiencing at work, we can help you to deal with it.
A great way to turn your stress into positive energy and boost both strength and confidence is through exercising. As you work out, your body will release feel-good endorphins that will leave you feeling happier and more at peace.
If a group of work friends are also experiencing the same issues, you should consider working out together. Activities like Zumba, Crossfit and boot camp-style workouts are a great way to fight those negative feelings, get fit and have a laugh with your colleagues.
As classes only last around 45 minutes to an hour, the activities are ideal for squeezing into a busy schedule. Whether you’re looking for an active lunch break or want to quickly relieve stress, these classes are for you.
If you’re planning on doing these stress-relieving activities before, during or after work, you’ll need some comfortable workout clothes. Dancemania have a wide selection of dancewear, from ballet shoes to dance trainers, that’s ideal for any workout at affordable prices.
Choosing dancewear over a pair of joggers will give you more flexibility and comfort, plus it’s made from a thinner material so will take up less room in your bag, making it easier to carry all your items on your daily commute.
