John C. Connell, author of Catholics Mean Business: 30 Days to Managing Your Work Week, God's Way has written another book entitled Catholics Have Courage: 40 Days to Beating Stress God's Way. John was kind enough to send me a draft of his new book.
Life can be stressful and we sometimes forget that God is there for us! John has put together a quick read that implements scripture and his own experiences. You can take this book with you (there is a Kindle version) or you can leave it on a table and pick it up daily.
One of the quotes from his book that really resonated with me, is right in the beginning:
Stress does NOT differentiate between personal and professional. It cannot be left at the office. With stress, there is no work/life balance. Stress is a perpetual by-product of our fast-paced society.
I think even a non-Catholic can relate!
My husband and I were always of the opinion that once we left work, we left work there. For years my husband practiced that, but as he's gotten older, it's a lot harder. Even though I work part-time, I find that if I've had a bad day, those feelings linger into my day off.
