Optimal - The Podcast: Episode 12 - Stress

Dr. Dicken Weatherby & Beth Ellen DiLuglio, MS, RDN, LDN

Welcome to episode 12 of "Optimal - The Podcast". In this episode of Optimal, join Dr. Dicken and Beth Ellen DiLugio as they dive into Stress!

Many people often view stress in a negative light, but that doesn’t always have to be necessarily true. Moderate amounts of stress can serve as a motivator that can steer us in a positive direction - boosting alertness and performance. But with factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing political and economic issues in the world, this constant buildup of stress begins to actively harm our mental and physical health.

Make sure to join Dr. Dicken and Beth Ellen DiLugio as they address the various sources of stress, the physiology of the body’s stress response, and the steps we can take to alleviate stress and its adverse effects.
