Why is uncertainty so stressful?
Stress caused by uncertainty can be paralyzing. The information we are getting about the coronavirus seems to be changing by the hour — creating unprecedented uncertainty. There is a good reason your nerves are jangle, or you are feeling unsettled or anxious. Uncertainty is perceived as unsafe and potentially painful. Whether the situation is predictably positive or predictably negative, your brain prefers something familiar to something unfamiliar. Under stress, our brains depend on instinct rather than rational thought because the part of the brain responsible for critical thinking is busy dealing with the psycholo...

Stress, Uncertainty, and the Coronavirus Podcast
There is a reason you feel unsettled by the uncertainty around COVID19 Our brains like a predictable environment and right about now things seem very unpredictable.  As we all adapt to working from home and navigating close quarters, it is important to remember that uncertainty is inherently stressful.  We are built to view uncertainty as something we need to fear.  Understanding the reaction, and taking steps to reduce stress, does more than make you feel better.  When we shut down the stress reaction we allow our brains to think more critically and creatively — and not from a place of fear. So, ...

How Does Dehydration Trigger Heart Problems?
Being in a dry environment, such as on a plane, can cause dehydration and heart issues. According to Mellanie True Hills, CEO of StopAfib.org, a patient advocacy organization that hosts the number one arrhythmia site and one of the top five heart disease sites worldwide, “The significantly dry air on a plane wicks moisture out of the body, causing dehydration quickly. Dehydration thickens the blood and depletes the body of essential minerals such as potassium and magnesium. Magnesium regulates the heart rhythm and potassium helps it work. Inadequate levels of potassium or magnesium can trigger abnormal heart rhythms,...

Stress, your brain, and food
Trying to decipher which food is safe or healthy can be stressful when you are faced with thousands of marketing messages every time you enter the store. Tyler Davis has a very approachable way of explaining how our brains make decisions and how marketing messages use that information to get you to buy their product! This was one of my favorite interviews so far! Take a listen: Our brain has a lot of processes that help us to make decisions and evaluate pieces of evidence for those decisions. Part of our brain is very attuned to just accumulating evidence for the value of something. It integrates all of the different piec...

Does Working From Home Reduce Stress? Remote Workforce
As companies struggle to retain millennials and create more productive teams, the draw of a remote workforce is alluring. Not only does it decrease brick and mortar costs, but the theory is also that remote employees enjoy better work-life balance, less stress, and are likely to stay with the company. But is this true? Is work-life balance better for a remote workforce? Not really. While work-life balance issues aren’t the top stressor for any of the employee groups in my job stress study (remote, traditional, men, women, parents, etc.), more remote employees reported issues with work-life balance issues than those w...

Are You An Iguana or a Border Collie?
Discovering your stress recovery personality lowers stress! According to my research, job stress is at epidemic levels.  Most stress reduction strategies tend toward the quiet, contemplative activities.  These activities work well for some people, but for others… sitting quietly and concentrating on their breathing increases their stress because they can’t shut off thinking about the things causing them stress.
