Let’s discuss how to change our perspectives around stress by watching Kelly McGonigal’s talk on “How to Turn Stress Into an Advantage”. This is a free monthly network gathering where we watch a TED Talk over lunch (BYO), discuss the talk, and then eat cake to celebrate birthdays for that month.
ABOUT THE TALK: In her book, The Upside of Stress, McGonigal asks, “If you could choose how stressful tomorrow will be, would you hope for a great deal of stress?” Our natural response is likely a resounding “No.” Yet, as McGonigal shows, a subtle shift in perspective around stress can be incredibly empowering. By reframing stress as a good thing and a sign of personal progress, we can avoid some of the baggage that comes with becoming stressed and actually turn our anxious feelings into a source of strength.
