In the body, moments of stress are detected by the amygdala — the brain’s primitive threat detection mechanism. The amygdala sends a distress signal to the hypothalamus, releasing adrenaline into the body, increasing our heart rate and breath rate, using up glucose and fat stores for energy, and ultimately releasing cortisol — the primary stress hormone.
In this episode, I explore the role that workplace stress permeates offices all over the developed world, with up to 80% of Americans experiencing stress at work.
