Should you dump a bucket of cold water over your head every morning? According to Dr. Howard Jacobson, who did his Ph.D. research on stress, and Glenn Murphy, his martial arts instructor who focuses on creating stress resilience, the answer is a resounding YES! (You can see photos of him doing it in the snow below). Understanding the science behind your body’s response to stress will allow you to have better control over your reactions and choices when things get tough – an essential skill for any leader.
- “It’s just a to-do list–it’s not a sabre-toothed tiger.”
