Embracing Tiger

In the book Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers, author, Robert Sapolsky examines the science of stress-related diseases that only humans (and not Zebras!) endure. Ironically, it is because our brains can remember the past and project into the future that our powerful minds can create physiological responses to something that isn’t actually occurring in the present. We are amazing! And yet, this gift also presents us with a situation in which living in the moment is the best remedy for worry. At NHI, we help our students shift their perspective from avoiding the “tigers” in their life to embracing them.
