Stress can both help and harm us and Mithu helps us understand the ways in which we can use this to achieve peak performance and improve our mental and physical health, as well as how small tweaks in our lifestyles can make us feel completely different, why challenge and reward cycles can be game changing, and how our perceptions of colour, sounds, taste and time alter under stress.
