Episode 28: Andrea Ferretti – Reframing the Way You Think About Stress

On this episode, I reflect on one of the most important reads of the year for me — Kelly McGonigal’s book, The Upside of Stress. A psychologist and yoga teacher, Kelly’s book is filled with compelling research about how the way we think about stress may be more harmful for our health than stress itself!

I offer three important takeaways from the book including:

* The Challenge Response as a way to prime us for stressful events
* The Tend & Befriend Response as a way to help us reach out and connect to others
* How we can get better at stress
