I don’t know about you, but when I think about balance, I think about managing stress. And I’ve always assumed that stress is “bad.” Now there’s a new TED talk that takes a different angle, arguing that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal shows you how to see stress as a positive and introduces “an unsung mechanism” for stress reduction: reaching out to others. Over 4 million views–it’s definitely worth the 14 minutes.
