How to Keep Your Home Clean and Healthy If You’re Self-Quarantined Because of Coronavirus

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.

Pomme a fait de son anxiété une force, elle raconte comment

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.”

How Your Perception Is Your Reality, According to Psychologists

“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.

HOW TO BEAT DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

It’s estimated that 7% of adults has had at least one major depressive episode in a given year. That over 16 million people!
Jim Carrey said, “Depression is your body saying, ‘I don’t want to be this character anymore.’” Depression is most common in people between the ages 18 to 25, which, if you think about it is about the prime time for finding yourself and having no idea where to start. It make sense that a big part of depression has to do with identity.
Our guest today is Kevin Gilliland, an expert in mental health, depression and addiction. He’s worked more than two decades in healthcare as a clinical psychologist, and he’s pioneer of outpatient treatment as the CEO and Executive Director of Innovation 360, which is a treatment center for alcohol & drug addiction, depression, anxiety, and bipolar.

Learning to Struggle Well With Dr. Kevin Gilliland

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.
