“Stress is at an all-time high – but you can learn to understand and control it.”
“We’re exhausted and overwhelmed.”
“Did you know? Over ¾ of medical visits are, in some form, related to stress.
Now, more than ever before, you MUST learn to address your stress!”
The 2018 Global Stress Summit presented multiple experts on dealing with stress.
The Summit was hosted by Heidi Hanna, Executive Director for The American Institute of Stress.

Here is a brief video with Dr. Hanna from the 2017 Summit:
A Summit of experts on how to deal with stress
The host for The Global Stress Summit, Dr. Heidi Hanna, “began her expedition into the world of stress science at the early age of 12 when she began to suffer from debilitating anxiety, depression, and panic attacks.
“With no medical explanation, she was forced to dive into mind-body research to try to put the puzzle pieces together.
“In this Global Stress Summit, Dr. Hanna interviews the very pioneering researchers and thought leaders who helped her learn how to utilize stress as a stimulus for growth rather than a trigger for burnout and breakdown, as she passionately encourages us to do the same.”
Brain-based emotional health approaches for dealing with stress
The Global Stress Summit program site notes:
As an experienced speaker, Dr. Heidi Hanna has been featured at many national and global conferences, including the Fortune Magazine Most Powerful Women in Business Summit, ESPN Women’s Leadership Summit, and the Million Dollar Round Table.

Dr. Hanna’s books include:

In a post on her site, she suggests:
“Get curious about stress. Will this matter in 5 years? Is there another way of looking at this? What’s the lesson here?
“By shifting to a curiosity mindset without judging ourselves in the process we actually open up the neural pathways in the brain to support more creative and innovative ways to problem solve” and deal with stress.
From Summit information material:
Stressing can be a blessing!
Did you know that up to 90% of all medical visits are stress-related? But talking about the dangers of stress often just makes us more stressed.
The good news is that the research is clear: stress doesn’t have to break us down or burn us out.
In fact, it might be the most important element of positive growth and transformation.
The key is making sure we have the capacity to deal with the demands of our circumstances, which includes elements of physical, emotional, spiritual and social energy and connection.
Stress is simply a stimulus for change, and its impact is based on our ability to effectively adapt.
