God Knows What He’s Talking About…Again…

Also from that paragon of religious wisdom: Men’s Health magazine’s Dec. issue:image

Coming clean can reduce stress, boosting your health in the process, a 2007 Wayne State University study found.  And don’t worry if you don’t have a priest on speed deal—it’s the process that helps.  So bare your soul to anyone you trust.  “The translation of emotional experience into language changes the way it’s represented in the brain,” says James Pennebaker, Ph.D., chairman of the department of psychology at the University of Texas. “By articulating their feelings, people receive relief from worry.  It provides an alternative way of thinking about problems.”
