In the second episode of The Behaviour Sleuths, Sala Sihombing and I dig deeper into stress, its significant impacts on our health, and how our bodies react to the stresses of change. When we are under stress, our bodies and brains respond with what is commonly known as “fight or flight response.” Sometimes, we are not even aware that our body is employing its natural defense mechanism until it’s too late and we start to see physical and emotional manifestations.

Learn how to recognise these cues, what psychological flexibility is, and what you can do to cope with the stresses caused by change. Subscribe to The Behaviour Sleuth Channel to stay updated with our future episodes.
