The Upside of Stress

The StoneTree clinic team has had our share of stress this month.

Moving to a new space, packing up an old space, figuring out where everything fits and how to effectively work in a new place is always tumultuous.

All that stress, you might think, would be “bad for our health”, but is it?

The answer is yes…and no. Stanford psychologist Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D. has some fresh insight that suggests that stress might only be bad for you if you believe it is. If we learn how to embrace it, McGonigal says in hew new book, The Upside of Stress, it can in fact make us stronger, smarter, and happier.

McGonigal’s great TED talk on the subject has been watched more than 10 million times. It’s a good intro to the idea, but the book is worthwhile read.
