Don’t freak out: The coronavirus is not the apocalypse. That said, some people (whether they have flu-like symptoms, are immunocompromised, or are just a little on edge) are choosing to stay home as much as possible—and experts say that’s not a bad idea. Kristine Arthur, M.D., an internist at MemorialCare Medical Group in Laguna Woods, CA, says avoidance is one of your best options amid the coronavirus pandemic, regardless of whether or not you’re sick. In other words, self-quarantining during the coronavirus pandemic might be the best course of action, especially if the virus has been confirmed in your area.
Today on the show, I have the amazing Kevin Gilliland, an incredibly talented doctor when it comes to the realm of anxiety, depression, and addiction, especially how it pertains to medication.
ANGOISSES – Gorge nouée, boule au ventre après une mauvaise nouvelle ou un événement spécial: vous êtes stressés. Crainte d’un danger alors que tout va bien dans votre vie: vous êtes anxieux.
La différence n’est pas simple à percevoir, et pourtant. L’anxiété peut réellement gâcher de précieux moments du quotidien. La chanteuse Pomme de 23 ans en témoigne dans son dernier album “Les Failles”.
Assise face à la caméra du Huffpost, la jeune femme remonte dans ses souvenirs pour raconter le moment où son anxiété a commencé. Après un moment de réflexion, elle confie: “En fait, j’ai toujours été anxieuse. Ça arrive comme ça alors que tout va bien, j’ai soudainement la sensation que quelque chose de négatif va m’arriver.”
“Perception molds, shapes, and influences our experience of our personal reality,” says Linda Humphreys, PhD, a psychologist and life, relationship, and spirituality coach. “Perception is merely a lens or mindset from which we view people, events, and things.”
In other words, we believe what we perceive to be accurate, and we create our own realities based on those perceptions. And although our perceptions feel very real, that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily factual.
Dr. Humphreys says that our past experiences greatly influence how we decode things. Certain people, things, and situations can trigger you to interpret things through a positive or negative lens based on those past experiences.
Pop that cork because self-love is worthy of celebrating, too.
Licensed clinical psychologist and the Executive Director of Innovation360 Kevin Gilliland is here this week to help us with mental health and new years resolutions.
Death by suicide is on the rise, and anyone can be at risk. Learn the subtle signs that someone might be in danger—and how to help—from mental health experts.
Here’s to a happy and fulfilling 2020…and beyond!
If your mental and emotional wellness took a backseat in 2019, there’s no better time than right now to prioritize it. (If anything, it’ll make the election year just mildly more bearable.) Your mood affects everything in your life ― your relationships, your work, your self-care ― so improving it should be at the top of your goal list.
Most of us would agree with the notion that life is hard, and we’re under constant stress. Dr. Kevin Gilliland asks the thought-provoking question, what if life’s supposed to be that way?
Gilliland, a clinical psychologist and the executive director of Innovation360, a groundbreaking treatment facility, suggests we stop looking for the easy button and instead, accept that we are going to struggle. He says that if we struggle “well,” we’ll find ourselves living better and enjoying a life worth living.
We’ve come a long way as a nation in terms of prioritizing wellness. As a whole, we are eating better, moving more and factoring meaning—not just money—into our career choices. Much of this is thanks to goal-oriented thinking: We meal-plan, track our mile pace and make spreadsheets for personal objectives at the office. While we may not do all those things all the time, we recognize that when we do, we live better.
