“You don’t need to get rid of anxiety to be your best self,” stress releases hormones that produce energy and more blood to the brain, enabling better performance under pressure.
Adopt a “bigger than self” mindset in response to stress.
Reach out for help, and give help to others. Connecting with others is proven to release a beneficial stress hormone, oxytocin, which produces a feeling of well-being and closeness with others. “When you believe stress can bring out the best in you, you allow it to help you learn and grow.” #anxiety #stress #performance
