View the archive of my 90-minute class and discover the Five Things I’ve Learned about the ways that transforming stress can improve you health and add years to your life.
I’m Elissa Epel. I am the Director of the Aging, Metabolism, and Emotions Center at the University of California, San Francisco where we do research on optimal aging. I study how psychosocial and behavioral factors, such as sleep, exercise, breathing practices, meditation and positive stress (yes, stress can be positive) can slow aging and promote health equity.
I’m also a writer. I co-wrote the New York Times best-seller The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Longer with with Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn, which explains from cell to society the factors that promote cell aging. My new book, The Stress Prescription, provides a simple, yet powerful plan to turn your stress into your strength, to reduce unconscious stress, and to experience deep rest states.
I hope you’ll join me, as I share the most important things I’ve learned about ways we all can live better longer in my upcoming 90-minute class, Five Things I’ve Learned about Stress and Aging.
In conversation with Kris Rebillot, I’ll share what I’ve learned about the ways that psychosocial and behavioral factors such positive stress can slow aging. I’ll also discuss the ways that self-care practices like as meditation and mindfulness training promote psychological and physiological thriving, and how large-scale interventions of these approaches might even improve well-being and health equity within communities.

We’ll talk about this, and much more. I very much hope you’ll join us.
