If you’re a human - you’re stressed. No matter how you feel, your biology can’t distinguish between a work deadline and being chased by hungry lions. So what’s the best way to unwind? Is it forest bathing? Is it therapeutic tremors? Meditation? 

On today’s episode, we’re covering all things stress, including:

  • What happens to your body when you’re stressed 
  • How to relax so you can think more clearly and sleep soundly, every single night
  • And why true relaxation requires more than just a Netflix binge session
