WOMEN FEEL PAIN MORE INTENSELY THAN MEN

MEN! Here’s yet another reason to hold her, pamper her, and just plain LOVE her.

A study of 11,000 men and women shows that women feel pain more intensely than men. The study included patients at the Stanford Hospital and Clinics with various conditions from cancer to infectious diseases. Using patient-reported pain scores, researchers were able to determine that women were more likely to indicate higher pain levels than men. The author of the study, Dr. Atul Butte, said, “That was the most surprising finding. We completely wouldn’t have expected such a difference across almost all disorders, where women were reporting a whole pain point higher on the 0-to-10 scale than men.”

National Woman Road Warrior Day Is Today (Sept 20)

A day to honor the nation’s traveling businesswomen. www.womanroadwarrior.com 

Women—young, old, single, married, and widowed are fueling an explosive growth in the travel industry. More women are traveling, for business and for pleasure.

FACTS:

72 million US women traveled during the past year. (According to a Travel Industry of America survey.) Of those who currently take nature, adventure or cultural trips, 75% are women.

Ten years ago, there were no such statistics. Now we know that the average adventure traveler is not a 28-year old male, but a 47-year-old female. And she wears a size 12 dress.

Last year women spent $55-billion in Outdoor Equipment, from hiking boots to specialized bike seats designed for the female anatomy.

The number of women-only tour operators has increased 230% in the past six years.

70% of all travel decisions are made by women,

Regardless of:

  • who they travel with,
  • who pays for the trip,
  • or where they go,

A woman is the decision maker.

In order to substantiate this statistic (from an article in the LA Times), a survey of  a large travel agency in California was conducted:

“Yes, your statistics are right on. 70- 75% of the decision makers we deal with are women.”

70% of all travel decisions are made by women. For example:

  • Mom researches and then books the summer vacation for the entire family;
  • Grandma surfs the Internet, collects brochures, books tickets and accommodations for a multi-generational family reunion at a resort;
  • A middle age empty-nester books a five-day hiking trip with friends while her husband is golfing.

Rock on ladies! My wife enjoys making all the vacation plans and is very good at it. – Justin

The Average Woman

According to Women’s Health:

  • The Average Woman pays $27,958 for a new car.
  • The top three cars among female buyers are Volkswagen Beetle, Hyundai Tucson, and Saturn Ion.
  • The Average Woman chooses the car color of silver.
  • Features the Average Woman seeks in a car are collision backup sensors, night vision systems, and tire pressure monitoring.
  • The Average Woman spends 55 minutes a day in her car.
  • She travels an average of 29 miles.
  • 60% of women say they get road rage.

What’s In Your Purse Ladies?

(Women’s Health) The average woman lugs 6.5 pounds of “essential items” in her bag. Doctors advise carrying one that’s no more than 10% to 15% of your body weight. Here’s what you’re carrying around:

  • 6.2 ounces – make-up bag
  • 4.9 ounces – set of keys
  • 4.8 ounces – Blackberry
  • 3.9 ounces – notebook
  • 2.9 ounces – wallet
  • 2.4 ounces – perfume
  • 2.2 ounces – iPod
  • 2.0 ounces – hand cream
  • 1.5 ounces – Advil bottle
  • 1.2 ounces – sun glasses
  • .8 ounces – eye glasses
  • .6 ounces – pen
  • .5 ounces – lip gloss
  • .5 ounces – tissue
  • .4 ounces – comb
  • What else? Anything missing? Let me know and have a great day. – Justin
