HW
And finally the woman being called the happiest woman in America, despite the stress of juggling a career and family. So what about her life keeps her happy and can anyone get it? Here is ABC's S. O.

They came out of college ready to take on the world. But today, these boomer women are juggling families and work and facing this killer statistic of earning an estimated $750,000 less over their careers than men their age. The result.

This generation of women in midlife has lower well-being than any other generation.

Than any other generation?

Yes, and this generation is more distressed and stressed.

So why is Mary Claire Orenic, a working mom, still smiling? Well, she's figured it out.

Researchers working with USA today surveyed hundreds of thousands of women and came up with a list of specific things they boost your happiness. Mary Claire embodies most of them.

Today we will pull back the layers of her work life to learn how to improve ours. First stop, at age 50, Mary Claire is a senior manager at a company and she's not slowing down.

I need that fulfillment. I've always worked. In fact, I've never worked 40 hours, I don't, I think I will do that when I retired.

Posters found the happiest women are still working full time. But on this day, Mary Claire leaves at 3:00 to take her son for a college visit. She told her bosses she works best with the flexible schedule and they allowed. Flexibility contributes to happiness in the workplace more than any other benefit, more than on site child care, job sharing, or even a long sabbatical. Another secret to happiness, a good friend. People who have a best friend at work are seven times more likely to be engaged during the day. And don't under estimate the power of your commute either. Researchers found for every ten-minute during the car, your happiness goes down a notch. Mary Claire works from home twice a week.

To drive an hour, drive home another hour, I've lost two hours of productivities.

And lost family time, a priority for so many women trying to make work, work.
