What you'll learn

  • At a cellular level, repeated or chronic stress shortens lives. Resilience makes us biologically younger. Developing resilience means:
  • The capacity to process stress in a constructive way rather than absorbing it
  • Choosing to override our emergency brain (which responds to adverse events)
  • Clicking back into our thinking brain which is necessary to resolve problems
Course Description

Kylie Bell discusses fascinating research by Dr Elissa Epel that demonstrates how telomeres in our chromosomes actually shorten in response to repeated or chronic stress. Although aging naturally shortens our chromosomes, resilient people are biologically younger than those who succumb to stress. Resilience is therefore linked to better health. We should be motivated to process stress more constructively, and in doing so, this helps us perform better and develop more robust responses to situations.
