Getting stressed out is part of life. But how good are you at calming down?

As we learn more about the cost of chronic stress, calming down has become a modern obsession — with an explosion of apps, tools and science trying to help us relax.

Join host Lisa Johnson as she explores how our brains and bodies are hardwired for fight-or-flight, and the real, even fatal consequences of stress without reprieve. We'll learn how Canadians are finding their calm, from meditation to biofeedback to the burgeoning trend of float therapy.

Keep Calm airs Victoria Day at noon on CBC Radio One. You can also listen to it here.

This special was produced by Manusha Janakiram and Lisa Johnson.
