Below are some interesting things Kelly McGonigal spoke about throughout her presentation which I have quoted and found them insightful and enlightening. Before you read any further watch her TED talk first.
"This is my body helping me to rise to the challenge and when you view stress in that way your body believes you and your stress response becomes healthier".
"How you think and how you act can transform your experiences of stress".
I imagine you may find this will change your perspectives and views which may allow you to become more self aware of your self and being able to manage your own stress levels moving forwards. Enjoy...
