Apparently it is not as simple as “yes or no.” Kelly McGonigal talks about a Harvard study that shows that, how you think about stress matters. If you see stress as bad, causing illness, and hurting you, it will. Almost magically, the crucial difference between the stress that makes you sick and the stress that doesn’t hurt you at all, is how you think about it. The mind is truly a powerful tool. When you change the stress story, and you see stress as your body’s way of rising to a challenge, you fundamentally change your body’s reaction to the stress. Your body believes your thoughts and your stress response becomes healthier. It’s brilliant! This is a great scientific example of changing the your world with your thinking.
