Recent research has shown that a person’s belief around stress determines how they will be affected.

In the research project it was found that people who believed that stress was bad for them had a greater chance of dying earlier.

Quite an interesting experiment.

I suppose all of us to some degree have been taught to be believe that stress is bad.

But what would happen if we were taught to believe that stress is good?

Health psychologist, Kelly McGonigal, claims that a better attitude to stress could prolong your life (see Ted Talk link above).

Now that’s some novel thinking!
