While most of us do everything we can to reduce or avoid stress, Stanford psychologist Kelly McGonigal, PhD, delivers a startling message: Stress isn’t all bad. New research shows that stress can make us stronger, smarter, and happier—if we learn how to embrace it. Through science and stories, McGonigal teaches us how life’s challenges can be a catalyst for positive action, personal growth, and compassion.
