Expert Insights: Part 1 of 2

Understanding Emotional Agility 

Stress Lurks in the Background of Our Lives

When we think of stress, it’s usually after the fact, when we’re already experiencing stress. “Stress is here! I need to manage it!” We can become stressed about being stressed.

This cycle isn’t working for us.

We have this narrative because we often perceive stress to be an inevitable fallout of growth or change, negative events, or today’s complex world. Stress occurs, we respond after the fact and often, ineffectively. Rinse and repeat.

We can change this pattern and be our best selves.
