Learn how you can turn stress into an ally to improve performance and help you stay healthy.

Stress is bad for our health, isn’t it? It has been linked to everything from psoriasis to asthma to heart disease. It may even make us more susceptible to cancer.

It is no wonder, then, that wellness advocates emphasize stress reduction, whether it is yoga, meditation, a walk in the park or petting a dog or cat. There is nothing wrong with such practices; but what if we could utilize stress to overcome problems and live healthier lives instead of allowing it to undermine us?

Dr. Kelly McGonigal has studied stress and says stress can help us perform better in challenging situations. Learn how to handle it to your best advantage.
