Well Stressed, the antidote to mammoth problems
But stress by itself isn't necessarily a bad thing.
You just have to learn how to understand - and manage it.
That's the message of a new book by Dr Sonia Lupien titled Well Stressed: Manage Stress Before It Turns Toxic.
Dr Lupien is a psychiatry professor at the Université de Montréal and the founder and director of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress.
She shared her approach to handling stress with Sonali Karnick.
