This morning NPR was reporting some interesting study results that showed that British folks are considerably healthier than us Americans.
Roland? Marian? You’ve won this round.
The report then suggested a few reasons why. Obesity and lack of exercise were mentioned, but what really hit home was stress. The piece talked about busy schedules, high work expectations, and general nonstop mayhem. I fear that I am very much falling into that sort of stressful lifestyle. But, to be honest, I’m not quite sure how to relax. I’m going to meditate on this one awhile and see if I can increase self calmness. I think that could be a major thumbs up to mental health down the road. Props to NPR for planting the seed.
