Episode #003: The Impact of Stress on your Decision-Making

What if you were able to identify and subsequently control your reactions to stressful interactions as they were happening? We all know that stress is harmful to our health, but what many people don't know is that it doesn’t have to be a huge part of your life.

When you are mentally tense, your decision-making can be negatively impacted. Your ability to process information and use critical thinking skills may be overshadowed, and the ramifications may be long-lasting. So as a precursor to our March 25th event on the topic of stress and decision-making, the SheCAN! Podcast is proud to present a throwback Facebook live audio from by APA Solutions with Joan Graci (President and CEO of APA Solutions) and Erikson Neilans, Ph.D. (in-house Neuroscience expert).

Nobody wants to be the bringer OR the receiver of a stressful interaction. Figuring out your role (as well as making changes to your responses and perspective) is key to your happiness, health and your relationships.

Don’t forget to tune in during minutes seven through nine as Joan and Erikson break down how stress can be “downloaded” differently amongst people and how your core memories around stress and perspectives are affecting your interactions.

Your key takeaways from this episode are:

  • Learning to control your reactions can diminish both the output and input of your stress.

  • You, yourself, play a role in stress levels, as well as the stress of others (especially in the workplace!)

  • Asking yourself “How can I make my day less stressful?” is one of the best ways you can reduce mental pressure and take control of your emotional health.

It’s time to empower yourself to rise above stress controlling your life!
