Stress is a word that most of us use with regularity to describe our state of mind or our lives but what does it really mean? Being in a prolonged state of stress is toxic to our body and mind.

Next on Line One, co-host Prentiss Pemberton discusses the impact of chronic stress on our health and what we can do to retrain our brains.
