Hello, friends. This is a great Q&A episode in which I tackle two listener questions on combatting bedtime adrenaline surges that result in panic, and coping with a long-distance relationship in these difficult times.
Hello, friends! This episode is an interview with the super interesting Cheryl B. Engelhardt. A government scuba diver, pop artist, music composer (and a whole lot more!) Cheryl has now surpassed 500 days of straight meditation. We talk about her background and life, her history of debilitating panic attacks and how she addressed these, as well as lots of other great things including the link between music and meditation, and how this influenced her new album, Luminary!
Anxiety is an exceptionally common mental health issue to struggle with. In this day and age, it is much less taboo to talk about anxiety on social media or during in-person conversations. I see people talking about tips and tricks to help manage anxiety symptoms all the time. A lot of techniques to help with anxiety are intuitive such as taking deep breaths or figuring out your problematic thinking patterns. However, as a psychologist that focuses on treating anxiety disorders, I also see a lot of mistakes. In this post, I’d like to walk you through a few common mistakes that could end up limiting your progress or even making your anxiety worse.
