Kelly McGonigal is a health psychologist at Stanford University.
In her recent video for TED Global, Kelly McGonigal talks about how people cope with stress. Previously, Kelly focused on the negative side effects that stress can have on your body. Now, Kelly suggests that changing your opinion and focusing on the upsides of stress can greatly improve your body’s response to it. Accepting stress and not worrying about it can also increase your life expectancy. Kelly believes that people need to get better at dealing with stress rather than trying to get rid of it.
