Now, more than ever, we are aware of the negative outcomes stress can have on our bodies and our minds. Something we talk about less often is the fact that stress is also required for growth, that the positive adaptations we make in response to stress make us stronger and more resilient to future stress.
In this month’s Community Q&A on YMO, Valerie Knopik and Rachel Land address your questions regarding stress for positive adaptation. Conversation will cover questions like:
> What types of stress can prompt positive outcomes?
> How much stress is too much?
> Are their strategies we can employ to make positive outcomes more likely?
> What role does yoga practice play?
