The Microstress Effect

Karen Dillon

Former Editor of Harvard Business Review and New York Times Best-Selling Author

About the Presentation

There is a hidden epidemic of stress that threatens to derail our careers and lives. It’s called “microstress” and can trigger small, almost invisible moments of stress that build up. Making matters worse, microstress comes from people you are closest to — at work and in your personal life. The long-term effect is devastating: microstress invisibly weighs us down, damages our physical and emotional health, and contributes to a decline in our overall well-being. The good news is that once you understand where microstress comes from, you can fight back.
