What We Do

4.22.2013 WRITTEN BY Ellie T+P Blog Central, What We Do

It’s no surprise women’s workloads continue to increase. As this infographic from HeartMath shows, the number of women working to contribute to their family’s income has grown nearly 10% since 1988 and with this comes added stress.

Why are women stressed-

We all know the negative effects stress can have on our lives. Before we jump to place blame elsewhere, we thought we’d share some eye-opening results from a national survey we recently read about.

Women and Time: Setting a New Agenda, commissioned by Real Simple and designed by the nonprofit Families and Work Institute reveals that much of the time pressure experienced by women is self-imposed, due to trouble delegating and letting go of control. However, the survey also discovered that women who set aside regular free time are ultimately more satisfied with their lives (50% report being very satisfied, versus 41% of those who regularly postpone their free time).


Ellen Galinsky, President and Co-Founder of Families and Work Institute says, “In order to reclaim – and enjoy – our free time, it’s critical that we shift our standards.” To put it simply, outsourcing tasks that eat up a lot of your time might make you happier by giving you back some precious hours.

At Tog + Porter, your time and happiness are a top priority. In fact, our core mission is to help women feel good about themselves and bring back the joy of shopping that once was. Studies show that it still takes women 3-4 hours shopping at a brick and mortar store to make a single purchase. Shockingly this same purchase takes 22 hours online. (Source: UK Daily Mail)
