I often listen to the local Christian radio station on my way home from Anatomy class. Last night, there was a Focus on the Family special, interviewing doctor and author, Dr. Richard Swenson, on living a balanced life, dealing with stress and priorities, and how stress affects our bodies and spirits. It’s worth a listen.
Broadcast Summaries: “Based on his book In Search of Balance, Dr. Richard Swenson discusses the importance of maintaining our long-term priorities in a world that constantly distracts us from them.”

You run faster and faster, but before long, you can’t keep up – you lose your balance, fall down and probably get hurt. Dr. Richard Swenson says most of us are running on a “cultural treadmill,” wherein the speed, complexity and busyness of life are throwing us off balance, hurting both our health and our relationships. So slow down, take a breath and listen in as Swenson – a physician, author and futurist – describes how the acceleration of technology and progress is pushing us toward overload in a fascinating discussion based on his book In Search of Balance: Keys to a Stable Life.”
