You hear it all the time: stress causes heart disease- stress causes insomnia- stress is bad for you! But what if changing how you think about stress could make you happier, healthier, and better able to reach your goals? Combining exciting new research on resilience and mindset, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, proves that undergoing stress is not bad for you- it is undergoing stress "while believing that stress is bad for you "that makes it harmful.

McGonigal shows readers how to cultivate a mindset that embraces stress, and activate the brain's natural ability to learn from challenging experiences. Both practical and life-changing, "The Upside of Stress "is not a guide to getting rid of stress, but a toolkit for getting "better "at it by understanding, accepting, and leveraging it to your advantage."
