I often get asked by people who are interested in my research “so, what does stress look like?” I find this question to be somewhat entertaining, as I think that most stress researchers would agree that stress doesn’t really have a particular “look” about it. This retort is something that Dr. Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University, author of the book Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers argues for in his book. I think that an important part of our stress response is in how we talk about “stress.”
