How To Make Stress Your Friend

TEDTalk by Kelly McGonigal

Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

Topics include:

  • Stress Response: Harmful or Helpful
  • Stress Response: Vascular Constriction and Cardiovascular Disease
  • Oxytocin: This “cuddle hormone” is also a stress hormone. Oxytocin is anti-inflammatory and helps you recover from stress
  • Risk factors for stress
  • Caring & connection for others transforms the stress response creating resilience.
