In episode 4 of Weekly Wonder, Emily takes us through a brain-based explanation of stress and then introduces an outdoor activity that will allow us to pay attention to the sounds of the world around us and help us feel better in stressful situations!

Additional Resources

  • Virtual Webcam of Panama Jungle – In case you can’t make it outside this week, you could put on some headphones and do a sound map of this small slice of the Panamanian Jungle.
  • Another brain-based explanation of stress – This video presents two more ways to understand our brains, and how they react to stress and anxiety. The more we understand how our brain works, the more we can actively take steps to increase our overall well-being.
