If you want to get physically fit -- try exercising your faith! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. For most Christians, getting to heaven may take a bit little longer. According to U.K. psychologists, their lifestyle might just be keeping them around a few more years. It shouldn't come as a big surprise, but the faithful smoke less, exercise more, and eat better. But that's not all. Experts also think more religion makes for better employees. Dr. Roxane Gervais found that workers who go to church are a lot less stressed and anxious at work. "My research shows that religiosity in the workplace may act as a resource, making people more resilient to cope with the many challenges of working life." That's ironic! Here in the U.S., companies are so busy pushing God out of the office that they don't stop to consider the benefits of keeping Him in. Turns out, encouraging faith isn't just about a higher power -- it's about a hiring power!
