This is a TED talk on managing stress. It turns out that previous research that suggests that stress can kill you from cardiovascular and other events is not accurate.
Instead, the vantage point you view your stress from determines which way you go.
If you see stress as harmful to you, then, yes, you will experience stress that may hurt you.
If you see stress as emboldening, then you can risk your risk substantially, and even grow from it.
It’s all in how you view it.
How do YOU view stress? What kind of a relationship would YOU like with stress?
