Stress: it’s a feeling with which many of us have become well-acquainted. While stress is a normal part of day to day lives, if left unchecked, it can have major impacts on our mental and physical well-being. However, by implementing simple and accessible coping strategies, we can better handle whatever life decides to throw our way.

Stress is something which impacts each of us in some way. Whether you have a big project at work or you’re juggling the demands of work and family, little by little, these obligations can mount into a massive source of stress. Per the American Institute of Stress, around 55% of Americans report feeling stress in their day to day lives. Stress is not just a momentary emotional response – it is a physiological phenomena with consequences for both our physical and mental health. Over the course of this conversation, guests will have the opportunity to learn how to identify the physical and emotional signs of stress, learn effective ways to reduce stress, and employ strategies to enhance overall well-being.
This conversation will be hosted by Dr. Rajiv Vyas, M.D., a board-certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine. Before joining Capital Health, Dr. Vyas was medical director of Behavioral Health at Aetna Better Health of New Jersey. He received his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies, and completed his psychiatry residency at St. Francis Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Vyas has presented on numerous topics, including stress management, meditation, and enhancing brain health. Dr. Vyas is actively involved in volunteer activities promoting wider access to health screening and health awareness for uninsured and underinsured individuals in Central New Jersey.
