Hormesis or Hormetic Stress

I’ve been speaking a lot about this in classes lately, but I know not everyone is able to make it to my in-person classes these days. So I thought I would share this video for you here.

Hormesis or hormetic stress is something that has been practiced in the Yogic and Ayurveda for centuries. Now western science and medicine is beginning to understand and embrace this idea. 

As people who spend a lot of money, time, and resources on making ourselves as comfortable as we can, it is important for us to understand the value in getting out of our comfort zone. In my opinion, this is not just beneficial, but vial for health and wellbeing.
