Stress has become a universal experience as well as a rising public health concern in modern society. People today are dealing with stressors that are greater in number and severity than in the past and this is taking a toll on our collective wellness.

Dr. Greg Hammer, my guest today, joins us on today’s show to shed more light on this topic. Greg is a pediatric intensive care physician, anesthesiologist, and professor at Stanford University Medical Center. He is a A member of the Stanford WellMD initiative and has been a visiting professor and lecturer on wellness at institutions worldwide.

During our conversation, Greg talks about the medical impact of stress on our bodies and how we can overcome them with his unique antidote called GAIN. He also talks about coping strategies that we can tap into specifically during the covid-19 global pandemic.
