    Listen to the talk

    Kelly Mcgonigal wants to rethink the entire approach we have with stress. Over the course of her study, she found that believing that stress is bad for you is actually worse for your health than being stressed. By changing the way we think about stress, or body's response to stress can change too. The neurohormone that stress releases called oxytocin is something that actually makes you social and craves physical contact, increases empathy and make you more willing to support the people you care about. Sometimes we even connect more with others when we're under stress to create resilience. But these are not the properties of stress that we familiarize ourselves with. Mcgonigal wants to redefine the light we shed on stress and how we can react differently to it to make us happier and healthier.
