Is stress affecting your health?

Stress can cause mental and physical suffering

According to The American Institute of Stress:

  • About 33 percent of people report feeling extreme stress

  • 77 percent of people experience stress that affects their physical health

  • 73 percent of people have stress that impacts their mental health

  • 48 percent of people have trouble sleeping because of stress

  • This trend has only worsened since the COVID-19 pandemic


Resilience is our ability to bounce back from stressful situations.  There are evidence-based skills that we can learn to increase resilience, changing our brain's physiological response to stressful situations.  

This in turn reduces the risk of mental and physical disease and suffering.
