How to channel your stress to help you succeed | Heidi Hanna | TEDxSDSU

Dr. Heidi Hanna loves stress. Yup, you read that right. In fact, she thinks we are all capable of loving it too. She reveals how to turn stress from an enemy to a friend through the lens of curiosity. What if stressing really is a blessing? Heidi Hanna, PhD is an integrative neuroscience researcher and the Executive Director of the American Institute of Stress. She is a New York Times best selling author, and recovering stressaholic. Heidi's passion is helping people transform their relationship with stress by understanding and adapting personal and organizational energy management practices. She believes that the answer to our current stress epidemic is training a new, whole-brain stress response based in a curiosity mindset that facilitates positive change and collaboration. Only when we stop trying to minimize or manage stress will we learn how to master it, and use stress as fuel for good.
