Stress log 19 - blogging a necessary evil?

Friday, September 06, 2013

I don't appreciate the time necessary to keep a blog. I understand and see that tracking food and activity keeps me honest. I know research shows people who do this are more likely to maintain positive lifestyle changes. Research also shows a positive correlation for keeping a diary or blog and maintaining lifestyle changes, but for me the connection seems more tenuous. Is it really cause and effect? Or is it indicative of a multitude of healthy lifestyle changes?

I do suspect that blogging in particular is fostering a simple support system, although it would probably help if people could get more points for posting on message boards and commenting on blogs, because it would encourage more communication and trigger more support and encouragement.

Just my thoughts for the day.

    I know what you mean about blogging. I kind of enjoy the communication but life can get very hectic at times. We retired in Feb. of this year and you would think we have lots of time to get everything done but we don't. It amazes me how fast time flys by and I never seem to accomplish all I want. I'm helping care for my 90 year old mother with dementia which gives me a ton of stress so I also understand the stress of caring for family and the worry involved with their well being. I've always read that writing about what is bothering you helps relieve some of the stress but I have to admit it's much easier to blog and that probably helps too. Keep working on the health factor which can help both you and your family. emoticon
