We went to a Preachers' meeting today. The topic was stress in the ministry. The were 2 speakers. The first was a physician speaking in regards to the physical results of stress. He mentioned is was much the same as that for physicians as well.
To lower our stress level we must eat healthy, exercise 3x per week, drink plenty of water and get appropriate rest.
The second was a doctor/counselor. He said we need a hobby to help relieve stress. One that is not related to our ministry. His is riding a motorcycle. Mine is making jewelry. My hubby's is golfing.
He also mentioned that anyone of 6 or more daily meds, needs to have those medications examined to determine if they interfere with each other or to see what their interactions are. I take 14 different meds daily.
Overall it was an interesting meeting. One speaker was not speaker material and was difficult to listen to. However he was pretty good one on one.
Now, I need to get back to my hobby so I can de-stress!
