Download podcast episodes a week early!
Kelly McGonigal, PhD is a health psychologist at Stanford University, as well as a best-selling author and popular TED speaker. She specializes in the mind-body connection, and her research is impacting tons of people and empowering them to manage their stress and start living happier and more hopeful lives.

Kelly has written multiple books, often drawing from the popular courses she teaches at Stanford for research and inspiration. Her first book, The Willpower Instinct, is based on her course “The Science of Willpower,” and her second, The Upside of Stress, grew out of the course “Living Well with Stress.” Her latest book, The Joy of Movement, didn’t grow out of a class, but it’s still full of great information about how physical exercise can be a powerful antidote for anxiety, depression, and loneliness.

In addition to being a prolific writer and popular Stanford professor, Kelly’s also a hit on YouTube! Her TED Talk, “How to Make Stress Your Friend,” has received over 10 million views, and I have a feeling it’s about to receive a lot more. It’s an inspiring message about why stress can actually be helpful, and it suggests that reaching out to others can be an incredible way to reduce stress in our lives.

Beyond her academic work, Kelly is passionate about giving back, and she does a lot of work with the Stanford Center for Compassion and Altruism. In fact, she helped create the Stanford Compassion Cultivation Training, a course taught worldwide to help individuals develop greater empathy, compassion, and social connection.

And as if all that weren’t enough, Oprah’s O Magazine named Kelly the first-ever O! Visionary and celebrated her as a person whose groundbreaking way of seeing the world means a better future for us all.

Kelly McGonigal is an inspiring person. Her research is making the world a better, less stressed-out place every day. I’m so excited to have her here on The School of Greatness today! If you’re ready to take control of your stress and improve your mental wellness, join me on Episode 1,006 with Kelly McGonigal!

Kelly McGonigal: How to Turn Stress Into an Advantage

About Presentation

In her book, The Upside of Stress, McGonigal asks, “If you could choose how stressful tomorrow will be, would you hope for a great deal of stress?” Our natural response is likely a resounding “No.” Yet, as McGonigal shows, a subtle shift in perspective around stress can be incredibly empowering. By reframing stress as a good thing and a sign of personal progress, we can avoid some of the baggage that comes with becoming stressed and actually turn our anxious feelings into a source of strength.

Proven Techniques To Increase Willpower During Covid w/ Dr. Kelly McGonigal | Maria Menounos

Ep.129 You've probably been told by many smart people that stress is harmful for your body, but get ready to have your mind blown. Studies show that the BELIEF that stress is harmful is far more toxic than the actual stress itself.

Dr. Kelly McGonigal will fundamentally change your entire relationship to stress through her incredible teachings. She's grown a massive following (including O Magazine's FIRST Visionary Award), because of her powerful advocacy of MINDSET shifts around stress.

Kelly says that stress is simply: what arises in your brain and in your body when something that you care about is at stake. By ingraining this belief system into our everyday life, we'll create new neural pathways that will actually create a biology of courage in our bodies when we face stressful moments.

And don't even get me STARTED on Kelly's research on movement and exercise. She highlights new studies that show us that our muscles are our own pharmacies that produce natural anti-depressants when we exercise. Talk about inspiring!

I know this episode can change lives, and I'd LOVE for you to share it with someone who needs this message. Check out the full show on YouTube, and make sure you subscribe when you land there!
