Stress works for you … or against you?

Innovative Leadership

I like to begin each day watching a TEDtalk “Ideas Worth Spreading” for inspiration. Here is one that can enhance and improve EVERYONE’s life (even yours). That is, if you have ever experienced stress.

I’d like to invite you to watch this TEDtalk video NOW as you begin your day. Innovative Leadership contains elements of how you take care of yourself, express compassion and caring AND how you connect with others. You can be a positive example by “thinking” differently about stress and, consequently, reducing adverse affects of stress on yourself and others.

Kelly McGonigal, Health Psychologist, speaks about “How To Make Stress Your Friend.” Watch now!

Social contact and social support

Stress is your friend!

"STRESS makes you social. Human connection is a mechanism for stress resilience."

— Kelly McGonigal
Caring for others

How much time have you spent helping out friends and people in your community? People who spent time caring for others experienced significantly less adverse affects from stress.

"STRESS makes you more compassionate. Caring creates resilience."

— Kelly McGonigal


Watching this speech gave me a renewed confirmation of the value of friends and family. I am sincerely grateful for the love and support of the special people in my life! I realize that I’ve had stress. I believe I’ve had a life episodes of drama. I also know that ‘you’ were always there when I needed you. THANK YOU!
