#340 Stress Proof: Being More Resilient Every Day


Yes, this is still here, and it will be for a while longer to serve as a reminder that there's a new place for Jill on Money content - YouTube!  Seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes it takes a little outside help (h/t to JOM friend, Joe A!) to recognize the obvious.  So don't freak out.  Going forward, we're going to put all our radio and podcast content on YouTube! It'll be easier for you to navigate and listen to past shows, because everything will be in one place.  Just click any of the links below and you'll be able to listen to this week's show as well as anything else you see that might interest you, including all the Better Off podcast content if you haven't been listening.

We started the show with a fun call from John in Chicago.  As he prepares for his wedding, John is trying to figure out the best way to have the financial talk with his fiancee, Kim.  John is more aggressive when it comes to finances, while Kim is more conservative, so we need to find a middle ground for these two lovebirds.  The good news is that they're already kind of talking about it, so it really shouldn't be that difficult to get them over the hump.

Hour two this week is devoted to helping you stress proof your life.

Thanks to our guest this week, Mithu Storoni, it can be done.  Mithu is a University of Cambridge-trained MD, certified in Ophthalmology. She also holds a PhD in Neuro-ophthalmology.  In her new book, Stress-Proof, Dr. Storoni will help us all discover simple, science-based strategies for beating stress at its own game.

As listeners of the show, you guys are clearly into personal finance, and you don't need me telling you that money can be stressful.  Stress is an inevitable part of life. But how much is too much? Research is uncovering the delicate balance that can turn a brief stressful episode into systemic overload, eventually leading to anxiety, depression, and other chronic health issues.  But this doesn't have to be the norm.  There are ways to prevent it from having a negative impact on your life and health.

  • When’s the best time to exercise – and how much is too much?
  • Which foods fortify the brain, and which do the opposite?
  • How can we use music, movement and motivation to boost our rational brain and keep our cool no matter what life throws our way?

The pages go on to outline seven paths to fighting the effects of stress–to strengthen our natural defenses so that our minds remain sharp, and our bodies resilient, no matter what life throws at us.
