Mental Health

It really is amazing how much stress affects our physical health.

Likewise, it is truly amazing how much better one can feel when looking forward to an event.

This weekend I went to the third annual SnowCon.
SnowCon is a gaming convention in the middle of winter in rural Maine.
It's an opportunity to meet new friends.
It's an opportunity to learn new games.
It's an opportunity to visit with people whom you have a lot in common with.
Most importantly: it's an opportunity to forget about the pressures of work for a weekend. Nothing else needs to be done except have fun and play games.
People attended SnowCon from as far away as the Los Angelos, California area. People attended SnowCon from as near as the nearest apartment dwelling to the con location.

The one thing we all had in common was that we were there to enjoy our weekend and play games with like-minded people.

I need more weekend like this one.
