If you could pick your stress

One of the areas that affect women entrepreneurs and business professionals is stress. Sure, I know it’s not just these two groups (let’s remember add mothers, daughters, etc), and stress takes its toll across all aspects of the female experience. I like to put stress management into the personal development/self-care categories and recognize it as a major source of anxiety for all of us. So I did find it interesting to see this presentation from Kelly McGonigal called “How to Turn Stress Into an Advantage.” She starts of by asking: “If you could choose how stressful tomorrow will be, would you hope for a great deal of stress?”

Check out this entertaining, 25 minute video where Kelly shares her insights.

I’m just wondering what areas you focused on, or thoughts come up as you watch it and is there anything you’ve learned that can help you manage the stresses in your life?
