Specifically, this podcast covers the following:

  • Importance of a sustainable lifestyle
  • Where you can focus your energy to make sure you have a resilient mindset
  • How important Energy Building activities are, such as a self-care
  • Mantra: Everything is happening for me, not to me

Finally, I discuss the Psychological Cognitive/Behavioral approach to stress. The Wikipedia link if you are a technical type, can be found here that goes into a lot more detail than I explain in the podcast. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appraisal_theory
