Merryn Snare: Stress Management Strategies to Prevent Mental Health Issues | Bouncing Back #10

Stress can be seen as an early warning system given by our bodies as a sign that there’s something wrong within ourselves. Acknowledging stress as an early warning system is one thing, the second thing is the way we manage the stress so it won’t give us negative effects on our mental health. But, how do we manage stress? Is there any effective way to relieve stress? 

In this episode of Bouncing Back: The Personal Resilience Science Insights Podcast, host Tia Harmer is joined by Merryn Snare, a Melbourne based psychologist. As a psychologist, Merryn is specialized in the field of stress and anxiety. Other than that, she also co-founded a arachnophobia (spider phobia) program in conjunction with the Melbourne Zoo. 

The conversation started by getting to know Merryn through her favorite book, the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. As an introduction, Merryn explained two types of stress in a human and how it affects our resilience. Then, she also shared some practical tips on how to manage stress so that it won’t affect our mental health.
