Is genealogy research and work beneficial to your health? A recent experience leads me to think it is.
About three weeks ago I came down with “the crud,” defined in non-technical terms as feeling yucky, having little energy, a stuffed head, and just not having much get-up-and-go.
A quiet Christmas came and went with not a lot of celebrating. I kept thinking the extra sleep would eventually help turn around how I was feeling.
Looming on the horizon was a scheduled presentation to our local genealogy society on our trip to Germany. The task was made somewhat easier by having plenty of time to prepare and I was able to assemble a slideshow for the program. Still, I just was not back to feeling normal.
Amazingly, my old energy returned probably an hour after concluding my presentation! I think the pie and social time at a local restaurant following the meeting also helped.
So, my theory is a genealogy presentation, pie and social interaction may be good for what ails me!
