Fri Aug 12 2016 (34:39)


In this podcast I discuss some models that will help you understand stress and the process. It will help you identify where you can make changes so that you can truly help yourself.



Specifically, this podcast covers the following:

  • How pressure turns into stress
  • Explain “good stress” and how not all stress is bad
  • 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

I also talk about the psychologist holding a cup of water. To watch a small clip that outlines the problem with chronic stress, click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNuvz1T0YOY


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
