Ever feel stressed?
It’s a question that is almost absurd. So much of our human experience involves stress and anxiety these days. It is further compounded by the fact that our brain is wired to respond to it. Adrenaline. Cortisol. Fight or flight… If a bear is chasing us, helpful. If you’re reading the news? Not so much.
Enter Dr. Cynthia Ackrill. She’s a physician, a stress expert, and leadership coach and she is on a mission to keep dis-stress from eroding focus, creativity, health, success, and relationships.
Today’s episode is a couple of my favorite segments from her CreativeLive class on stress. But this is just a tip of the iceberg. Her class is a deep dive of how panic, anxiety, and stress can stand in the way of the life we want. The good news? We can stop the cycle.
