Dr Mark Orpen-Lyall on Stress: Societies Misunderstood Bad Boy

The pursuit of a balanced life, or at the very least a less stressed life, is an often quoted modern-day refrain. Research shows that the balanced life is a rare, elusive experience for most. Dr Mark Orpen-Lyall, Stress : Societies Misunderstood Bad Boy, explains how stress is not actually the enemy, how we negatively perceive stress and respond is the real issue. We need to recognise that stress if harnessed primes us to achieve remarkable things. We need to build integrated lives that proactively create conditions for thriving.
In today’s podcast, Lita Currie and Mark discuss how resilience can be built in advance, both on an organisational and personal level, in order to thrive, not just survive.
