THE UPSIDE OF STRESS Why Stress Is Good for You, and How to Get Good at It

by | Read by Kelly McGonigal

Personal Growth • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

This memorable audio by a Stanford psychologist says that stress can be exhausting and paralyzing, but it can also help you grow more resilient, smarter, and happier. It all depends on your mindset--what you tell yourself about the stress and how you see your ability to handle it. As she delivers her powerful ideas, the author's voice is characterized by an interesting mix of vulnerability and an obvious desire to make a difference in people's lives. She's a natural speaker with a warm and inviting approach to her material. Though the putative focus of the book is stress, what stands out is the broader message, delivered with compassion, that our interactions with all of life's challenges can be radically improved if we learn to think about them with a proactive, positive mindset.
