Brilliant Thoughts: How to Talk About Microstresses with Rob Cross & Karen Dillon SUCCESS Podcasts

    • Business

At the end of the day, have you ever felt exhausted and stressed, even though you can’t think of a good reason why? Turns out, there’s a cause after all—microstresses, small moments and interactions that fly under the radar of our fight-or-flight response, but which affect our body just as regular stress does. 

Rob Cross and Karen Dillon conducted myriad interviews for their new book, The Microstress Effect, and found that “the stress we create inevitably boomerangs back on us in a different form, and so the less you create, the less you have coming back,” according to Cross. Now, Cross, Dillon and Brilliant Thoughts host Tristan Ahumada discuss how relationships affect your well-being, moments in which Cross and Dillon have taken action to push back against microstresses in their own lives and how we can build resilience and emotional reserves to deal with microstresses in our day-to-day life.

Mentioned:


“The Secret to Building Resilience”
“Harvard Study of Adult Development”

Rob Cross and Karen Dillon are authors of THE MICROSTRESS EFFECT: How Little Things Pile Up and Create Big Problems—and What to Do about It.
