The Stress Response and the Magic of Pressure-Free Living

On episode 404 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Elle Ingalls, a high-performance coach who helps business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals who are experiencing work-related stress achieve more without stress-induced burnout.

In the course of their conversation, Keith and Elle discuss how the stress response affects performance, the health implications of chronic stress, and how individuals can know when they’re triggering the stress response — and what to do about it.

Elle Ingalls is the creator of The Pressure-Free Method, an on-the-go stress management method that you can use anywhere, anytime. This is the ultimate “work smarter, not harder” formula that quickly reduces anxiety, impatience, and the mental blocks to success. With her expertise on the fight-or-flight stress response, Elle can show you how to de-stress without having to slow down or take time off for enhanced cognitive and physical performance. Elle draws on her experience as a performance coach, executive, professional musician, community leader, and parent of three grown sons, plus her three degrees from the University of Michigan, to help you break the stress cycle and experience your full potential.
