Stress Management

 

 "75-90% of all visits to primary care physicians result from stress-related disorders."

– Paul Rosch, M.D., President, American Institute of Stress

 

Now more than ever, managing our stress response becomes vitally important to our health and well-being. In her presentation, "How To Make Stress Your Friend," Health Psychologist, Kelly McGonigal, draws on three recent studies that reveal how stress is a natural reaction to adversity, and if you stop becoming anxious about your stress, the body can naturally cope in a healthy way.


"Can changing how you think about stress make you healthier? The surprising upside of stress."


 

I have been working with my psychologist at Healthwise on and off for two years now.  I honestly feel like she understands me and she has helped me in so many ways.  I am not sure where I'd be without her help and support. -G. L. Maple Grove
