Health Psychologist  Kelly McGonigal On Stress, Movement, Resilience & So Much More

OMG- stop what you are doing and listen to this podcast. The world is different as we battle the pandemic of COVID-19. Our lives are full of stress, anxiety, discomfort and the unknown. Our mental health is being tested, as are our relationships, finances, businesses, education and future outlook. I am incredibly grateful for the time I spent with health psychologist Kelly McGonigal and I know you will soak in every aspect of this podcast.

I first came across Kelly McGonigal watching her TED talk on stress via YouTube. When you have over 20 million views- and a hot topic-  it tends to draws people in. I loved her energy and her passion for the topic. Little did I know there was so much more to her, her career and the work she is doing now. Kelly, is a research psychologist, lecturer at Stanford University, and an award-winning science writer. Her scientific research focuses on the mind-body connection, and how to cultivate resilience and compassion. She is the author of the international bestseller “The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It”. “The Upside of Stress: Why Stress Is Good for You, and How to Get Good at It”. “Yoga for Pain Relief” and her most recent book “The Joy of Movement: How exercise helps you find happiness, hope, connection and courage”

Kelly translates academic research into practical strategies for health, happiness and personal success.

We hit on topics from each of her books- as they relate to our current situation in isolation and quarantine and information I know you will take with you long after this crisis is over.
