It’s been said that chronic stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century. It can have negative effects on all of us in multiple ways. Elevated cortisol levels can increase our susceptibility to illnesses, sleep deprivation, and can even cause brain shrinkage and memory problems.  So what steps can we take to manage stress? Join me as I speak with Dr. Dave Rabin, a Board-Certified Psychiatrist, Neuroscientist, and inventor who studies resilience and the impact of chronic stress in our day-to-day lives. He specializes in treatment-resistant mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosomatic disorders, personality disorders, chronic pain disorders, insomnia, and substance abuse disorders using minimal and non-invasive treatment strategies. In this episode, Dr. Dave shares some of his favorite tools to help manage stress and anxiety and explains why not all stress is created equally.  He explains the difference between distress and eustress, and provides some tips on how to heal a dysregulated nervous system.
