The discussion involves Dr. Elissa Epel, professor at the University of California, Tom Hale, CEO of Aura, and Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global. The conversation focuses on understanding stress and its impact on health and well-being. They address that stress is a common issue among adults, especially women and young adults. However, stress can be adaptive and is in fact necessary, with the issue arising when it becomes chronic due to lack of recovery. Hence, resilience is crucial in managing stress. Tom reveals that Aura has added a daytime stress measurement feature to their app using heart rate, temperature and motion. The app also includes interventions such as meditation content and journaling to manage stress. Arianna emphasizes the need for a judgement-free approach in managing stress and advocates for 'micromoments' of reset to manage mental health in real-time.
