This video will change how you think about stress… and maybe even save your life

In studying the science of happiness, it’s interesting how sometimes you get a new perspective on the same thing or several different perspectives come into one and reveal something new. I’ve recently blogged on how thinking about stress symptoms as signs of courage, of readiness to tackle a challenge can help change one’s perspective on stress (here). I also blogged about ways to overcome stress in conflict situations, such as ‘pay forward’ by committing a random act of kindness (here). Then I’ve seen this video today, which brought all of these perspectives together, and in addition revealed a new outlook on oxytocin and its role in stress management. Change perspective. Pay forward. Connect. If you are stressed or ever were stressed, this is a must see.
