August 3, 2023

Meryl Herr notes that, "Managing our stress is a matter of stewardship. It’s a way we care for ourselves so that we can offer ourselves to God and in service of others." Reminding us that stress management is a spiritual practice for Christians, she offers practical strategies to help us physically to do so.

"Mitigating work-related stress requires a multi-pronged approach. Organizations need to examine their culture and leadership to determine the ways they could be eroding employee well-being. We need to evaluate what agency, if any, we have to advocate for change in our workplace or to find a new one. And we need to engage in practices that help us rest and relax."
