S4 E6: ”Stress Tolerance” Changing Our Mindsets About Stress
22:47

Welcome to the Insight Thru Experience Podcast. In this episode, we will be discussing our mindsets around stress and learn how to adopt a "stress is enhancing" mindset. We lean on the expertise of two renowned Stanford psychologists who specialize in mindsets and stress: Dr. Kelly McGonigal, and Dr. Alia Crum.

Have you grown up hearing that stress is a negative "bug" inside our mental hardware? That it disrupts our focus, leads to negative outcomes in both performance and health, and debilitates our ability to thrive in our lives? This episode tries to shed light on the subject of our mindsets around stress and how we should view it as performance-enhancing and that biology has blessed us with this "feature" (not bug) inside our mental landscape.
