Kelly Mcgonigal: How to make stress your friend

Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist for the past 10 years, comes up with a very interesting discussion on handling stress.“Can changing how you think about stress make you healthier? And here the science says yes. When you change your mind about stress, you can change your body’s response to stress” is what she quotes.In times of stress,our heart might be pounding, you might be breathing faster, maybe breaking out into a sweat. And normally, we interpret these physical changes as anxiety or signs that we aren’t coping very well with the pressure.But what if you viewed them instead as signs that your body was energized, was preparing you to meet this challenge?

What do you think?
