A short talk on the "Good Side of Stress" given at the TED Salon in Vancouver by Dr. Firdaus Dhabhar of Stanford University. 

Firdaus Dhabhar, winner of 2012 FEZANA Excellence in Business or Profession Award explains the good side of stress. Here is a quick and clear message about the latest thinking regarding stress and how you might increase its positive effects:

From these worldwide Salons, a small number of speakers will be selected to make a main stage presentation at the worldwide TED 2013, aka "the ultimate brain spa" in Long Beach, CA next year.

Selection will be based on "votes" consisting of viewer ratings and comments received before August 31, 2012.  Therefore, the TED organizers have encouraged speakers to share their talks with friends and colleagues.  It would be great if you could view the talk and rate and comment if possible.  (Clicking on the rating stars should take you to a sign-in page, that allows you to sign in through Facebook or TED.)

Please also post / share with your network as widely as you are comfortable and encourage folks to rate, comment, and share, if possible.
