Managing Stress
Protecting Your Health


Sustained over time, stress can undermine health in serious and sometimes deadly ways. In this Forum event, expert participants examined what we know about the effects of stress on health, including heart disease risk, and about the role social status plays in exacerbating or mitigating these effects. In addition, panelists explored ways in which positive well-being, mindfulness, exercise and nutrition contribute to a more resilient, healthier lifestyle.

Also see this brief video with Dr. Lilian Cheung, a Forum participant, conducting a short mindful breathing exercise. Follow along as she demonstrates how regular conscious breathing can be a quick and easy way to de-stress.
