Distinguished neuroscientist Tracey Shors has dedicated her life to explaining how the mind and body respond to stressful events we can’t control – from difficult childhoods to bereavements, stressful jobs to pregnancy. Some dissipate with time; while other, long-term stresses – like the experience of the pandemic – can change the structure of our brains. Drawing on years of research into the effects of stress and trauma, she shares a simple and impactful solution for strengthening our resilience and improving difficult symptoms.
