Reframing Stress

Stress is debilitating…at least that’s what pop culture would have you believe. 

Three powerful studies on the topic of stress demonstrated that 1) stress doesn’t have to be debilitating and 2) when you frame stress as something that can enhance performance you end up responding better mentally and physically to stressful situations. 

How you frame stress, it turns out, can make all the difference. 

As you encounter stressful moments throughout the week, try reframing the feelings of stress as your mind and body’s way of preparing you to take on the challenge in front of you. 

In this way, stress becomes an asset instead of an enemy.
