I am preparing a lecture on wellness for anesthesiologists and anesthetists attending my continuing medical education (CME) meeting this weekend in Laguna Beach CA.
In looking for pictures illustrating “operating room stress” on Google, one of my previous posts was high on the search list. So, I’ll repeat it here below:
A recent study shows that people with high-stress jobs (particularly when they have little control over their environment) were more likely to be obese. But here’s the catch – the less people with the stressful jobs exercised and the more they watched TV, the heavier they were!
Now, TV and “chillin’” may be relaxing after a tough day, but taking a walk can be relaxing too – and much better for ones’ health!
