Most people wince every time they hear the word “stress”. It’s like the whole world has been classically conditioned to respond to stress the same way, by the word alone.

Which is one of many reasons why I love Kelly McGonigal’s TED Talk. Using health psychology research, she demonstrates how perceiving stress as either positive or negative can have a “live or die” impact on your stress response.

Powerful words. Solid research to back her statements up. Hope you enjoy it!
