Flip the Script on Stress


With all the media reports on the negative effects of stress, one might think that stress is something to be avoided at all costs. Yet research shows that many of these negative health effects are more closely tied to our mindset about stress than the stress itself.

In this noontime webinar, we will learn to recognize stress for what it is and appreciate the positive aspects of stress, which are often overlooked. We will better understand the physical and psychological impact of meeting stress with more stress vs. with a calm, clear presence. We will learn and practice ways to shift our mindsets and activate the enhancing aspects of stress. Finally, we’ll discuss the science of gratitude and learn practical, authentic ways to live a fulfilling life.

Instructor: Sarah Meyer Tapia, MA, is associate director in the Division of Health and Human Performance at Stanford University. She has worked in both employee and student wellness, studying and teaching stress-management, mindfulness, self-compassion, and behavior change to students, faculty, and staff.
