What Parents Need to Know About Anxiety (with Dr. Ann-Louise Lockhart)

"Use a lot of mental health diagnosis and terms interchangeably. With just regular speak. You know we say oh my gosh the weather so bipolar or or what. Movie was so schizophrenic. We use a lot of those kind of mental help terms to describe everyday life and it's very inaccurate. Most of the time. And so i think Disorders are one of those things. Because we have feelings like fear and worry and then we have anxiety disorders which can include a lot of things like a fear of being a crowded space where you can't escape which is a phobia panic disorders. We have specific. Phobias or fear of dogs are snakes are flying. We have generalized anxiety which is kind of a general feeling of uneasiness about a multiple sorts of things they actually included selective mutism few years ago into the anxiety disorders spectrum of diagnoses. As well too. So you have a lot of different things that cover that so really. What distinguishes fear and worry from the inside disorder. That severe is when it causes significant. Impairments on your everyday functioning. It's one thing if you're a little afraid of dogs for example or spiders and you just don't like them but if you're constantly checking corners and your obsessive about it and you're always asking for reassurance from your parents and making sure that nothing is going to hurt you in the middle of the night you sure there's no spiders in my bed mommy and it's constant and it's impacting their ability to function in their everyday life. That's when we're looking at more like an anxiety disorder type thing that's where the category of anxiety falls because it impacts everything school learning friendships their thought life. All of that kinda stuff and that's where that distinction between the worry in exile. Come into place and what causes that. Were maybe like you said. It's the one time being afraid when they see that animal or spider whatever but when it goes from that to now i checking every corner in doing very unreasonable things around this. It's a variety of things. There's a hereditary factor so there's a lot of people that it's just in your family where a lot of people when i'm talking to them and doing an intake they'll say. Yeah you know. Anxiety runs in my family. My mom was a warier. My grandma was aware and her grandma was aware here. And so it's kind of like this hereditary factor there's a genetic component to it but there's also a learned component as well to where if you have a parent who's a very anxious person and they act in anxious ways then if you're around them then you are going to be more likely to be anxious as well. When i was growing up for example my mom was hugely afraid of frogs. And i grew up on an island so i grew up in the virgin islands. And we're surrounded by water ed. She loved plants so we had plans lining the entry to our front door. And where do frogs hang out in moist plants so there would be huge frogs over our doorway and that's the only way to get in the house and so then she would be like okay. Well what i guess. We can't go inside the house. And i'm like so. Are we supposed to do so. That i started becoming hyper vigilant and scanning all the time. Because i'm like oh well. What if there a fraud because the frogs on the island are huge. Huge so then it kind of became. This learned fear of frogs because she was so worried. I picked up on it from her. Would i have been afraid of frogs. If she hadn't been maybe maybe not. But it can also be a learned factor because anxiety is not something that we just have at something that can be learned definitely. But then there's another piece of it which is there's a predisposition factor where there are some personalities and temperaments that are predisposed are more likely to having zaidi or having anxiety disorder. Because they're more sensitive or they're more observance or they're very in tune with their environments. And there's a lot of evidence that shows that individuals who are more intelligent even are more likely to be anxious because they have very divergent ways of thinking outside the box thinker. So they're always thinking what could go wrong anyway and that's just how they normally think about things and sensitive picking up all these different layers all the time of things that are going on. Yeah that makes so much sense. Though about the environmental factor of the parent having that power since children are always looking to their parents to check their center and really hoping or needing those parents to be centered as much as possible. And you see it when children are even they fall and they look up at their parents to see. What do you think about. This is all right. Like am i going to be okay. And children are picking up everything constantly from their parents. So what a parent do if they are like your mother or fit. They're very easily anxious or they have clinical anxiety. How do parents manage this to try not to have it affect their children. So much yeah. That's a great question. And the thing is that when i often see children or teens with anxiety i prefer to see them along with their parents because as i teach the child the teen about specific strategies i also want the parents to learn more often than not the parent is also struggling with it and the cool thing about anxiety. Strategies is up there pretty much universal across the board. You just tweak it. A little bit based on age to make it more digestible for a child to understand. And so i think of big part of it is for the parent that they need to address their own anxiety. They need to do the work like anything else right. is that we. We have things that are going on that. We've been rehearsing inhabits for decades which is often the case. then we've gotten really good being anxious and It's just an automatic default and so if our kids are constantly hearing and seeing and living out then. We're always reinforcing it so they can get all the help they want. But if you are still than reinforcing the other way of thinking then it's going to be hard for them to get out of that anxious mindset so i think a big part of it i as the parent has to be aware that they actually do have anxiety and then do the work to overcome that so they're not instantly giving it to their child and i think that's really really important for and this is just one of the many many important ways that children inspire us to work on ourselves in a positive way and heal

What Is the Immigrant Paradox?

What Is the Immigrant Paradox?

"For over a century. America has been described as a melting pot in which immigrants from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds slowly simmered together melding into an all americans do but is that really the way it works or even how it should work is total assimilation. The only way to be an american and is it healthy for individuals to abandon their cultural heritage in whole or in part an order to adopt the customs of their new home. We spoke with sess schwartz a professor of public health sciences at the university of miami. Who that it's time to shelve the melting pot metaphor schwartz studies acculturation which is the process by which a person's cultural sense of self changes. As when you move to a new country or are raised an immigrant home and the effects of acculturation on physical and mental health it turns out that assimilation is only one type of acculturation and that fully simulated americans have some of the worst health outcomes. Immigrant families are actually most likely to thrive in america if they embrace aspects of both their native culture and their doctor land public health. Researchers like schwartz. Call it the immigrant paradox. He said there's a whole literature that suggests that foreign born americans are doing better than us. Born individuals on many different health indicators heart health weight and obesity diet depression anxiety substance. Use you name it. So what are the alternatives to assimilation. There's an old joke. That's well known in europe. What do you call a person who speaks two languages bilingual. What do you call person. Who only speaks one. Language american schwartz said in the united states unlike a lot of countries in the world. We actively discourage people from having multiple cultural identities we just want people to be american even the fact that we equate acculturation and simulation says a lot about our culture and how we think people should behave however it is important to note that acculturation is a two way. Street is cuban and tori behavior based on immigrants race or ethnicity by the receiving country can make it much harder for immigrants to achieve healthy by cultural integration traditionally. There's been an assumption that the acculturation process in the united states ran in a straight line at one end of the spectrum stood the recently arrived immigrant still carrying around the language traditions and customs of the so called old country but as the immigrant moved along the line over time did slowly discard their foreignness. As they gradually acquired language and customs of america but starting in the nineteen eighties researchers began to question the straight line assimilation assumption. Psychologist john berry came up with a pioneering model that showed four different responses or strategies including assimilation. The emigrants used to navigate life in their new home. So i got a simulation but that being that you're willing to discard your culture of origin and fully identify with the new culture. The sort of opposite is separation. Wherein you hold onto your original culture at all cost and don't want to adopt the new culture then there's marginalization in which you don't identify with either your heritage culture or the new one. It's a rare situation and finally there's integration sometimes called them you want to maintain a strong connection with your heritage culture while interacting with enquiring traits from the new culture according to schwarz there's strong evidence that the assimilation strategy is bad for your health. The worst psychological effects of assimilation are felt by second generation americans children of immigrants who were either born in america or raised here from a young age second generation. Kids are sometimes so eager to fit in that. They turn their backs on their parents. Customs and traditions entirely schwartz explained. They basically reject their families culture and that tends to produce pretty negative results higher rates of anxiety and depression substance abuse and worst family relationships. The best psychological and health outcomes on the other hand are achieved by individuals who embrace by cultural ism. A balanced integration of their heritage and received cultures short says that people who are able to comfortably blended their native and acquired cultures. Have quote much better outcomes. In terms of higher self-esteem lower depression lowering zaidi and better family relationships immigrants who learned to successfully habit to cultural worlds are the same people who drive the immigrant paradox in americans born outside the us achieve at significantly better physical and mental health outcomes compared to their native born or assimilated neighbors. But why is this diet is one simple explanation says schwartz because immigrant families are more likely to prepare home cooked meals than the typical american family which tends to eat out a lot and consume more processed foods but there are also significant psychological factors at play the most important has to do with the values of american culture versus just about everybody else. Schwartz said the. Us consistently ranks as the most individualistic country in the world. Were more self. Reliant and less reliant on other people in basically any other country on the planet so most people who come here from other places are more collectivist than we are. Let's break that down. What does collectivism look like. As a cultural value it stresses the importance of family above all else. It places an emphasis on the greater good and doing what's best for the community. Not just yourself and it's a less competitive way to look at the world. Schwartz says that cultural values the promote close knit families and selfless service can protect against a lot of the mental health issues. That plague many americans. He said there's a reason why we have so much anxiety. Because we're so highly individualistic and competitive. We have to compete against other people for everything. And if you can't keep up there's less of a support system ready and waiting to help you in this country when we talk about helping other people. Some people want to shout socialism. I think that's one of the issues that we have.

"Jodi. Thanks very much for joining me to chessel mentally ios them. i will have even doing Just generally during the pandemic. Well i think things have been up and down for me personally and for everyone around unisom days seemed like everything's normal and then other days is really in your face so i think. I'm just the same as everyone around a. I think our young people are struggling. The most and people who are isolated are really struggling a lot. So i'm lucky to have people around me in my house. yeah duty. That's the main thing we city chatting about. And i really appreciate you touch me about that. About how young people dealing with the pandemic and also How young people. With anxiety of dealing with it What advice can you give to parents in terms of supporting children with anxiety especially moment. Well yes especially now you know inside is one of those weird things because it it is it has different objects like so people are nervous about different things so the first thing to do when your child has anxiety or teenager you wanna know what specifically they're upset about would beings our society targeting telling you that this is a problem because sometimes you could just reassure them sometimes you can really look at something analyze it and realize this is not something to worry about and that could be quite helpful that would be like the first step because a lot of time to could get rid of some anxiety justin doing that one specific executives young people have different to adults. Well i think the younger people have more of the worry that people are judging them because we grow up we start a shed a little bit of that. I've heard that in your forties in your fifties. You just really stopped caring. So i'm looking forward to that time but you know it's about a win. This is their time in their life. Appears means so much to them so if there is any kind of exclusion or being left out or someone saying something in usually. They're all in this immature state trying to figure out who they are and so the other people saying this stuff. It's really about them than about my your child. So when they're bullying or they're judging or they're saying this stuff it's really about them but your child of course because they care so much about what people think about them are really taking into their heart. So it's a those are that's really the biggest anxiety. Like what are people gonna think about me. What are they are they looking at me. What are they judging about me as really skyrocketed especially with social media it's really skyrocketed. Yeah what do you feel some social media and how. It's affected the mental health of young people. Why did my tiger tax wilmington talk about this. Because i see that. There's three different messages. That being on social media brings us that makes us feel really out of control and then leads chang zaidi in one of them which is the most obvious one that we all know about. Is this comparison culture. You're comparing your backstage mass to somebody else's highlight reel and it's just not real filtered edited. They only show you the good things in so you think that everyone's doing all this great stuff now. Ordinarily we look around in everybody looks fine and on confident happy because anxiety and low self esteem or quite invisible. So when you're feeling it and you're looking around and you think everyone else is fine but you but actually they're all struggling just like you. Are it just that you feel like you're the only one in that feeling of difference really intensifies. It makes you feel different. Makes you feel wrong. Makes you feel like what's wrong with me. Why am i. why don't i belong. And humans belong so bad and teenagers. They want to belong. I mean that's like their foremost job right now is to find people to find peers to connect with. So that's what's been really hard about this. Pandemic is the 'isolation that they're feeling because this is the time they're supposed to be with their friends. So i didn't tell you about the other two one the other one is Second one is trauma that they see online and social media. They're getting all the news alerts and they're seeing horrible things. In violent things happening sometimes really far away and that feels so random and out of control that you might be vulnerable to and when you see that online there's nothing you could do about it see feel helpless in that increases the anxiety and then the third reason social media is really in our face right now. Is it really interrupts her sense a worse by advertising so the advertising like you're worthy just because you have to. It gets us to think that we should just get stuff. Burr losing that cause and effect. We haven't learned that. Would you do something to get something. And we think things hand happen randomly with all three of these messages. Actually we think things happen randomly and so kids are not in touch with their own skills and abilities in that's increasing their depression increasing anxiety

Toxic Relationship With Alcohol

Toxic Relationship With Alcohol

"With alcohol. I would venture to say most of us have been in a toxic relationship at one point or another in our lives for many of us we start these bad habits young and repeat the same mistake a thousand times over. Many of us are raised with some sort of toxicity even in our family relationships in it's all we know. So of course, we go out in our adult lives in create those same kinds of relationships. And when I say relationship I don't necessarily mean romantic relationships. We have many relationships with our friends and families and coworkers. And win where unhealthy on the inside we will create unhealthy relationships with everyone in our lives. You'll relate to this topic on many levels but you know the most significant relationship I'm talking about is your relationship with alcohol. As we dig into this, it is kind of surprising how similar the toxic relationship with alcohol is too toxic relationships with people. So, let's get into some of the red flags of a toxic relationship. Like when you feel like you're walking on eggshells when things become kind of unpredictable and it leaves you with a sense of holding your breath or walking on eggshells. One weekend you and alcohol have a great time together and nothing terrible happens in a few days later, it has humiliated you once again. Predictably unpredictable. You're chasing the high of drinking and at the same time trying to avoid the lows. Right? Creates a real sense of instability and insecurity. You know again like you're walking on. Eggshells. Another one is thinking back to like how it was in the beginning and hoping that that like honeymoon phase will come back. You know we all know that feeling of being kind of baffled when you think back to how much fun you used to have drinking with your friends you didn't use to drink too much or blackout or act crazy or start terrible fights with your partner in it's totally normal to daydream about the good old days and wished for those fun times again. But your attachment to the good old days keeps you locked in with that hope that those good times will return. And all the while use stay stock. Because all you really have is hope that may be the good times will return been in the meantime you're staying stock the unfortunate truth with love or alcohol is that a healthy relationship? Can feel uncomfortable and unhealthy feels comfortable because it's familiar. The other one I really went to talk about is gas lighting. This is a really popular term right now in the relationship world. You may not know this about me but relationships are the other thing I study a lot relationships and communication to know how to better understand one another and live together and in relationship world the last few years gas lighting has been getting a lot of attention. Slamming give you a definition of gas lighting. Gas Lighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which a person or group covertly sows seeds of doubt in an individual or group making them question their own memory perception or judgment. Often, evoking in them cognitive dissonance and other changes including low self esteem. That sounds really weird and evil but. But it's actually very common. I was a gas lighter in my past I. Hope I have healed that part of me but I really was. So let's look at some examples. So it makes more sense. Say a wife goes to her husband and tells him she doesn't feel like he's carrying his weight when it comes to taking care of the kids. She feels like he could do a little more help out a little more. A healthy partner would respond in a calm and loving way like, Oh my God I'm so sorry, feel that way I didn't realize. I. Wasn't doing my part. I will definitely pay attention and do a better job in please tell me when you need help in need to step in because I want to do my part and I wanNA, support you. That's a healthy person. A gas lighter will respond differently, gas lighter will take it personally take it like a personal attack not even considering for a moment if there's any truth in it, right if maybe they do have some responsibility in it, then they'll respond like the wife is ridiculous in what she's saying is completely untrue that's not happening at all. You're just making things ob you're blowing it out of proportion. They respond like it's not even happening. which then leads the other person to feel like am I crazy am I making this up? Am I blowing it out of proportion or being unreasonable? A gas lighter makes you question yourself in question what you know to be true. Look you right in your face and tell you ally and then deny it even when you have proof because denying the Lai creates a sense of not knowing when they're telling the truth when they aren't it leaves you in a position where you're totally off balance and that's exactly where they want you to be. Alcohol is gas lighting you. It abuses you humiliates you makes you feel terrible about yourself make sure Zaidi explode. Then in the next breath, it's telling you how it can solve all your problems.

What Do I Do When My Friends Talk About Dieting?

"Alright. SO WE DO A. As promised. A we showed. Okay. I will read it. Man. Hey, Sammy any lean first off like every other email you read I, want to say how much I love your podcast and I. Thank you for sharing. Your intuitive eating. Journey is really opened my eyes and helped me a lot. I was deep engraved in Dia, culture for a very long time. Last November I competed in my first bodybuilding Bikini show and struggled so much post show with binge eating I continued to. Stick with the coach for almost a year after my competition trying to follow a strict workout, a meal plan and kept finding myself struggling so much with my relationship with food binging and body image. So I dropped the coach and I've recently been my own intuitive eating journey for a couple of months now, and I really couldn't be happier. However, what I am struggling with is the triggering language that a few of. My friends and family members use when it comes to their body slash eating habits. A few of my very close family friends are actually signed up with my previous coach and in deep quote diets, they're constantly justifying their food explanations to me or making comments about how they feel or look fat, etc. This is very triggering for me and makes me question my own food choices and body they know I am on. An into they know I'm on an intuitive eating journey and I post a lot about it on social media. So there's no surprise to them. However, I'm not sure how to handle these comments in person when they're made I, try my best to brush them off in reply with neutral responses but I'm finding very hard and it makes me question myself. How would you guys handle this thing so much your fellow intuitive eater. Yeah I mean, this is this is like this. This is the Pitta me of the challenge of of sort of going your own way with intuitive eating. I I think. It's like with anything like even even diets even eating anything you do is easy in a vacuum but. Released into the wild everything becomes more challenging because there's so many variables. Well, I'll just say that's Why I brought up the like ten thousand steps thing from this weekend like I found that that whole conversation to be dark triggering because like not because there's anything wrong with that. But because when I was dieting ten, thousand steps was like thing I had in my head as like. That's a method of losing weight not a method of like getting my body moving. So the intensity of like we need to move, we need to take as many steps like I was not like. It gave being Zaidi and let people were taking it too far. We're like I need to go walk around but yeah. Yeah. Right, it's like that and there's nothing like I'm not like again it's not about like the family or the friends who are doing this like like you know what I mean. It's all their fault. It's just more like. Necessarily bad and no, it's not. It's not like inherently bad at all and like it's it's not you can't blame them even but the like. You have your own feelings about it, and that's understandable and that's okay because of where you are on your journey and the whole thing I guess becomes about like. How do you internalize those messages without letting them? Without. And take them in sort of without. Letting them, derail you or examining them like non-judgmental Lee. About how they make you feel. and. It's OK that a certain message or a certain situation might make you feel certain in a certain time. It doesn't mean forever. It doesn't mean those things are inherently bad. It just means right now you're experiencing a certain emotion. So what like? I'll give my own example at the ten thousand steps like I felt like, okay I'm experiencing this. Let me observe it. Why is it making me feel this way like what? It triggering. Hate using that word but like what is it bringing up for me? What brought up for me was like a wet a certain old way of thinking and certain environments might bring that up for you or certain people might turn talking to certain people might bring that up for you and it's not those people's fall. It's it's. It's just something for you to grapple with and like like Ailey like you said like if it is easy in a vacuum when you don't have those like things coming up but when you do figuring out how to like. SORT. Of handle them internally is the process and that's okay that sometimes you will feel bad feeling bad is like feeling bad internally is not necessarily. A bad thing. It's just an emotion toe sorta bride I think just to add also on that there's two things you can like practically do and what I do. Is. Have on hand like a list of reasons why doing intuitive eating put make in a notes in your phone write it down some writing things is more I know just feels different than typing it because typing could be deleted but writing it feels more therapeutic and more natural. I don't know what it is just love handwritten note. Writing like why you're doing this, what your goals are with this? Like how do you want to feel and then anytime you feel like somebody says some comment that you're not necessarily feel strong enough for just go back to that list. And read it to yourself sort of like an affirmation. But also we get a reminder of why you're doing what you're doing. It doesn't make you weak at all to have to go back. And my other thing is just maybe take perspective of like. What the the comments that they make is from a different mindset. It's an old mindset that you don't want to assume it's something it's something you're trying to get rid of, and that doesn't make you better than anybody. It just makes you in a different place and just remind yourself like, oh, they're just in a different place than I am And I'm a new place and just kind of. Again like like you're saying, don't engage handle it neutrally like you're saying but it definitely very difficult. So what you can do the things that you can control so I think I would try to take those tools with you. Into these situations.

How to Connect to Your Humanity and Change the World

"Today. We're going inside the head of Young Pueblo Aka Diego Perez. He's a writer poet and activist who explores his own mind to create poems about the mind. His poems or meditations in themselves and often talk about meditation teachings directly. He's also instagram famous with three hundred, twenty, nine, thousand millennial followers who receive as simple visual poems about meditation daily in their feet. Welcome young blow. Thank you so much for having me Emmett set of the year. Yeah, it's wonderful conversation. Awesome. So let's just start in dive right in because most people probably curious about the first thing they heard young Pueblo like who is this young logo is noted to meet the Guy Behind Proba tell us about young Pueblo on how that came out. was. Name that came to me a bunch of years ago. I'd say back sometimes it's funny thirteen I think the name came to me, and then over time I really developed a meaning. Around honey or team twenty fifteen I realized that I wanted to take great seriously as it was around the time where I saw that. Betaine is having a real effect in my less democracy game meditation course back in. July of two thousand twelve and after doing a few silence and David Austin courses I realized that a lot of the burden that was sort of limiting my mind's in regards to. Zaidi sadness where. They weren't totally radical, but there were decreasing and I was noticing that. I, was really feeling better and I felt like I had more choices in my mind as I could see the world a little more clearly, and then I can navigate my own actions in a way that was much more productive to my personal happiness. So In, sort of pushed me into wanting to righty might people now that healing yourself was actually a real possibility has to be. I know that for myself. I kind of went into meditation has an experiment just as I was always curious about it and it felt like the right fit so I didn't really know that's what I was Gonna get out I. Think I knew that I was going to learn a bunch of things but I didn't know that I was actually going to feel better and it wasn't until after of delving deeper into the process into the actual practice I started seeing that I so lows better sort of into writing. and. The idea of young Bible kind of really warm related around it's my understanding of the world that we are all very young collectively. If you take all humanity were all very young you know it doesn't matter if you're ninety years old is you take us as a whole giant collective we have so much to learn. The bucs Amina's for. Up when we were little children. When we went to school, we were trying to simplest things are teachers were really. Trying to get us to not hurt each other to tell the truth to be kind to one another and to generally just you know it's even like clean up ask yourself things are seem so simple that we can do as individuals but as a human collective e don't know how to do these things at all. A. Me. got. Sort of a signal that. We have a lot of growing up to as humanity and a lot of I. Think a lot of that growing up center happened during the century. We have so many big challenges ahead of us that will hopefully help us row. That this sort of. A. Renaissance, I would call it. That's happening around the mind. Is GonNa be a big big part of humanity mature. SO THAT'S A. Really helpful perspective. So somebody who has a two year old myself I spent a lot of time teaching him some very, very basic things like heating is bad. I'm sorry in some days he's amazing at it in Sunday's he just gets brought by his own emotions, his own desires and hitting back at the window. In it's interesting to look at our humanity as being a very similar place lessons that we've learned over and over again, our childhood yet they're returning in the adult hood of the individual, but still the sort of childhood of the collective. Beautiful by. Where do you see our evolution going? What do you think the path down that road is I think it's interesting because people have very different aspirations. So I wouldn't want to try to say you know all human existence is in this direction but I would say that to get to a place where we're not arming one another where we. Are Mentally ill in ourselves. That army another as arguing when sell it doesn't take. Much Work Right. Having that understanding that you know is literally to my benefits and not you is very different from what sailing Total Liberation Enlightenment's. That's actually a very easier accomplish many think that's where we're really heading as a humanity in our evolution that we're trying to lift ourselves up into that understanding that Oh right? It's not. It's not to my benefit at all to harm you in any way it actually helps my personal life to support you in your freedom, your sixty etcetera. So forth, so me I like to think about it in. In the immediate. Immediate future being like next year is not like the whole seizure. SABA. But it really is trying to get ourselves to that point where or. Individuals in because that's an idea that we've had. Throughout, all of history. Having an idea intellectually is very different from being out experiences, experience Adiba yourself or deeply being able to you'll that you know that it's your benefits are mothers I think Ruby's different practices Asami different people are engaging. Different introspective medias including meditation. That that will help get. To that point where it's like Oh right now, of course, not only do I in my mind but I. Feel my body and now I'm GonNa find better solutions than our.

What Patients Are Saying About Antipsychotic

"In the early nineteen nineties about half of US patients with bipolar disorder took lithium now, it's closer to fifteen percent and the use of antipsychotic says more than doubled to fill that gap. A new survey reveals what patients think about these newcomers. This was an online survey of two hundred US adults who by their own report were diagnosed with bipolar one disorder and had taken an antipsychotic within the past year. Era Paul was the most common followed by Qu- Pina Spirit Own Olympian and Larizza on there are others that fell off after that. Overall people were satisfied with the efficacy but dissatisfied with the tolerability ninety, eight percent had at least one side effect on the NS psychotic and most of the side effects were not trivial. Ninety two percent felt the side effects had a negative effect on their relationships. Patients were embarrassed by the side effects. Particularly, anxiety weight gain followed by involuntary spasms or movements and trouble concentrating. I'm reminded here of Dr Magas Warning in June twenty nineteen issue on side effects that patients are not likely to put up with a side effect that they find socially embarrassing. The side effects that bothered people the most worrying Zaidi with gain and feeling like a Zombie or having no emotions And the rates of these three burdensome effects were large in the seventy percent range. ANTIPSYCHOTIC side effects carried over into all areas of life family, romance friendships, and work. Thirty to fifty percent felt that the anti psychotics impact their job sixty to seventy percent felt that the bipolar symptoms impacted their job. So from the patient's point of view, the side effects are a little better, but almost as bad as the disorder itself in the workplace. The bottom line while the PDR can tell us what side effects to expect surveys like this. Tell us just how damaging those side effects are. And the numbers here are much higher than what we see in the PDR. What's unclear is whether lithium or the Anti convulsants would raise the same level of complaint in

"If indeed, that's a reason the ball travels a little better but we would that be a consideration I know that not hill gang is is quite popular out there but do you think it affects? The wind patterns and therefore the flight of the ball or in could that be on the table for for leaving? Yeah. I. Mean I. Don't really want to speak out of turn Ballpark Kinda decisions or a lot of people would be involved in those but dancer the question. It certainly, a plausible theory for me but I think about you know we we made a number of changes to the ballpark obviously putting the bullpens out in Centerfield You know I think anytime you chain structurally the configuration of the Ballpark you know wind patterns are so complicated. It's really hard to know how things are going to effected. So if if if some wind pattern expert came in and said, putting the bullpens in in Centerfield has increased, the carry out to right field would believe it I'm none of us really know any better so I think. Between the you know changes made in center field. You know not having fans at the park who knows how that affects affects things in the aerodynamics So I think that could be due to a number of actors I. Think we're open to anything I mean certainly I know our players have been very happy to see some that carry out to right field, and hopefully we can take advantage of it at these tapes we have coming up. We'll forearm. Thank you so much for this and thanks for your honesty and willingness to address all these topics much absolutely. I wanted to again. Thank far Hans Eighty for joining us on the giant Splash podcasts, Henry Shulman, and I will continue bringing new podcast as we ventured deeper into twenty twenty season. The giants splash is a production of the San Francisco, chronicle podcast producers. King Kaufman and Allen Johnson, the theme song. Batter up was written.

"Of the giants organization and a real positive has been the stability of the leadership. We had a lot of people in leadership positions for for long periods of time and You know I think that's one reason why diversity is not maybe as reflected in our leadership but I know all the way to the top of the organization to Greg Johnson and Rob Dean. This is a priority and For Larry Myself as well we're certainly going to make it a priority going forward. Okay. Maybe a couple more I. mean you're coming up here at facing the Houston Astros I mean they're a different league but you are with the dodgers in seventeen, the world series seven games, and you had personal stake in that series What what is your thought about the Astros scandal including in regard to the years you're with the dodgers would kind of made a difference. Can we just go back to talking about Joey Bar? I You know look I, it's tough I. I would echo a lot of you know what dodger players have have said, which is the you look back I mean that was a heart wrenching loss. You know you know in two thousand, seventeen I think it was one of the best world series ever played it went to seven games. There is a lot of close games. There are a lot of Java And you know you you. You're always going to have that what if in your head, you know and that that part of his is tough and obviously for me, I've left the organization you know. So that kind of chapters closed for me I think for. Good number of guys that still with the dodger organization I know that there continue to aspire to win the world series and I think that might help them get some closure on it but you know for any of us that were, there are no longer there I think it's maybe even a tougher cult swallow. So you know I know as an industry. We've turned the page on it and I think MLB's done a really amazing job especially lighter the pandemic in and some of the issues that we have logistically ballparks right now feel very confident that this kind of thing isn't happening anymore and that's really important. But you know I would be lying if I said that you know personally you didn't. News coming out and You know just feel like you know you..

"Hi Everyone I'm John Shea of the San Francisco, Chronicle and thanks for joining us on the podcast. Our guest is far Han Zaidi. The giants President of baseball operations and he shares in our wide ranging discussion his thoughts on manager Gabe Kaplan will touch on the dodgers series the fast starts by Mike Disrupt Ski and Donovan Solano the slow starts by one hundred pence and Pablo Sandoval and what's up with Joey. Bar. Enjoy. Well, thanks for joining me for Honda. Days. They didn't well, thank you wanted to ask first of all your impression so far I, mean the offense has been impressive in in many ways including the ability to come back from early deficits never a good thing but the rotation wasn't all that efficient early on you know, and then lately with Cueto in Guzman in La, very promising the defense has has been down obviously leading the majors, Nares and There are some fundamental issues but you know there's been good in bad and as we sit here, the giants are seven and tents just wanted to ask early impressions or we're at the quarter or at the quarter-point. So it's not that early I guess. But so yeah, I think you hit the nail on the head. It's it's been a mixed bag. There's been things we've been really encouraged by certainly like you mentioned the offense, the offense overall but also the resiliency of the offense to come back in in certain scenarios obviously Solano has. Done an amazing job Put Up. Use numbers and gun lot of big. It's for us You know defensively look, we're not a team that has a ton of teams speed. We're not GONNA have a ton of range in the field but I think. An aspect of defense that's been. A little disappointing and has shown up in some Big Times in certain games is you know some of the fundamentals you look up on Donna Roster we've got a lot of really sound veteran defenders who you know will make plays consistency consistently in the field and You know unfortunately, you know in a couple of spots the defense has been noth- a little bit and you know to your point on the pitching staff the rotation is really coming together Guzman's starting in L. A. Like. Invention was phenomenal and Johnny really battled in and did a great job keeping that offense off downs, and again you know those would be impressed start against any team but you know lineup like added particularly impressive in obviously, Logan webs done a really nice job for us, and as those guys Kinda get stretched out more and you know we're able to build up their pitch counts I, see them taking on more a load which I think will. Help alleviate a little bit of what the bullpens. Done and had to do so far. This year we've got a younger bullpen and I think we need to get a position where we can protect them a little bit and so we're we're clearly moving in that direction and there's a lot of positive sides on the pitching staff as well..

Stephanie Fleming on organization, life hacks, and how she built 'The Happy Planner' and 'Me & My Big Ideas'

"Are so excited to. To introduce incredible Stephanie Fleming. She is a creative entrepreneurs speaker of and wellness seeker. Most notably, she is the CO founder of me and my big ideas creator of the happy planner, and what began twenty years ago as a tiny garage business is now an industry leading lifestyle brand and offers a wide variety of products that inspire customers to live creatively and plan a happy life. Please welcome Stephanie to the show. Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening. So cool and so. You had your first business you? You began doing that twenty years ago. And then you landed to the happy planner, which has been a huge success and It's a it's a beautiful book. It's something that you want to. Hold in your hand, and just like carry with you all the time. It's so cute and fashionable. Where did that idea come from? And how? How did you of get to that point? Where like I want to be in this market of making planners? Happy like honestly we've had a lot of great products that of sold weller mckellen's pretty cool, but the happy planner is like it's so me. It's totally me so the the way we came up with. It was pretty much the same process that we did it with anything. As we and my sister is heavily involved in product about men in our company as well, but we watch in decide okay. scrapbooking was huge for a while, and so we were able to kind of ride that. That wave and we've kept coming out with products and line extensions and and then you kind of see that it was kind of starting to taper off. It was not as popular and the products weren't as weren't selling and going doing the having the sell through that they did before, so we're like okay. We need to know what creative women are doing next. which is what my mom did, so we would always be looking for what. What what do i WanNa do what is something that's interesting for me. and and then also kind of searching pinterest looking around water, creative women doing so for some reason on pinterest people were taking just regular planners from staples, or whatever and they were putting our scrapbooking products, stickers and things and making them cute but the scrapbooking don't really fit like they don't fit size-wise. They didn't fit if you're you know the stickers we were. Were to commemorate memories and things, and that's not necessarily the things that you need for planning so I kind of just you know, and they were boring to staples like office supply things. They have black brown different color bays. You know really great. You know what I think. Someone would would think the businessmen would like. And then there was like three designs that were like purple. Paisley or some ugly grandma color. You know I'm a woman, I. I don't want that, so we thought definitely we could do better in design. We could get them more affordable. We could create accessories that would go specifically for them, and then you could put in those accessories like things that are positive so that every single day when you're planning when you're having fun putting stickers out ever, there's this creative positive message that makes you happy that keeps you going, and so it was just a kind of another. Offshoot into what we normally do. What are creative women doing? And at this point? It was like people are busy, and they want to be creative, but they need that little bit of licensed to say it's okay when you're planning your schedule. You can kind of put a sticker downer. Says you can do it or just. Those little positive affirmations make a make a big difference. I love that so much were all about positive affirmations and There's something that I still love about having a planner in front of me like an organizational planner. Where where I. Can you know touch the pages and I can mark things off. It's so different than a calendar on Google you know and I've always I've i. still have a planner, so I love that, but I'm curious because you have built such a successful brand and obviously. You've separated yourself in so many ways by having something very unique You offer as something that's very I would say year to the millennial woman. But how how have you separated yourself with your branding? I'm just so curious about like where your sales come from utilizing social media, you have a huge social media following. So, how what kind of what was your? What was the method to your madness at that point when you started thinking ahead? Yeah, so at that point. We had we had a very successful company in the craft industry and up? Until that point, we had what I figured successful products. We didn't really have necessarily like brand. Following social media was just coming up, but you know there was something about the happy, and I think my own personal passion for the product helped in planning it. No Pun intended. because. I feel like we got to this place or like this product line. I just feel like we need to be able to have a brand. There's gotta be a message behind because the message of the product is so powerful and so really. What happened I mean there wasn't? A Master Plan I love this product so much. That I just started talking about it and sharing on social media back in the periscope days. You remember, periscope yeah. Remember. About it and I just said you know what I would anytime we would come up with something, or we had something new exciting happening in office. I'd like I'm just GONNA share. It's just going to be I wanted to our product and the brand to feel like like we were just friends sharing like. If I was you know to call you up and say Oh, my Gosh I'm so excited. We just got this prototype in, and here's what it looks like. Here's how I'm going to use it and every. Every new products came in. We previewed it on periscope did live Q. and A. is, and and that's before people really doing that and we were sharing the process and the product, and sharing my excitement, geeking out over stickers and a paper planner you know, so. It became I thought there was really no plan other than to share authentically, and that was really before, but you know everything authenticity be authentic was just such a overused catchphrase, but that's what it was because I didn't actually want to be the spokesperson. For our company, and because it's such a team effort, and so I'm not. I'm not maybe maybe I wouldn't had the idea for. Let's let's look into to paper planners, but I didn't create designs, and I not the artist, and I'm not the one who source the product and sold it in such a team so but. In order I felt so passionately that. Don't have relationships with companies. They don't have relationships with products, but they have relationships with people and brands, and if I could be that conduit. To Give A. Personality to our land our company then. I'm like all right. I'm willing to do because I was the one before it was like no, I don't really want to know I'm just I'm fine to not do it, but when I was sharing something, I was so passionate about the following just came. We did not say hey. We want to get to I. Think we're over six hundred thousand on instagram. We didn't have a plan for that. I mean eventually to grow. It takes you get to a certain point. It's like okay now. You have to plan, but we grew our numbers very very organically, and by just engaging with them. You know true engagement and it's. It's not even just the number in the plan, but it's like. Are you engaged? Do you care about your followers? Do you care about your customers and deal you know? Are you engaging that way? Are you doing it for the rise near following? Are you doing it for the sale? Are you doing? Are you doing it because this? Just feel so right to you know. Yeah while you're on that topic, too. Because so cool that you grew organically because. I mean it's such an easily marketable product, but also like how how do you stand out amongst your competitors are? There's other planner companies out there. So what's your differentiating factor with your product? So at the beginning? We were the only ones pretty much doing what we did, so we stood out really quick, and it's almost like I. Always say like it was like. Like when I had my first when I said WHO's very well behaved typical. I am such a good mom. And then my daughter came a second, and she is like great, but she's you know totally like wild spirit and I'm like oh my gosh. I need to to work at this little more. So when we did when all of a sudden you're like It's growing and you're thinking. Oh, my gosh is great. People are just listening, and then all of a sudden when you're onto something, people and other brands and other companies go. They're onto something I. Think I'm going to try that, too. And then what you were doing so authentically is being duplicated right so. So what we have always done I think and even back in the scrapbooking and paper. Crafting days was just advice. My mom gave me is just really don't worry too much about what other people are doing. Find out what you uniquely do. What is it that your company or your brand do what do you? How do you stand out and for US There's a lot of people who have high end stationary and people. People that are saying a professional and I want it to look like this or I. Don't like this about your as well. This is who we are. We are colorful and fun and were affordable. We have a disc bound system where you can change things in and out, and those are some things honestly and with the brand that will turn people off when you really claim like who you are. Some people are going to say. Well, I. Don't know but I. don't like that well, but this is who we are when you can really find that those are the things that just kind of narrowed down, and you nail it down so much that these are the things that make us unique, and so for us. We embraced all of that. That is who we are fun and colorful, positive and an interchangeable, and all these things about the product and about our messaging. That's what we focused on, and I think even especially going forward when it becomes harder and you. Maybe at this point, we're going like you see a slowing in not just gaining followers as fast when you get up high. And there's more people in the space so for us it's how can we find? What, we, what is it that we offer? That's unique whether it's the message product. And, you kind of have those pillars of our being authentic. Is it something that's different or are we just white noise in the space? Should we be making a change? We be pivoting. Right now do. Is there something we need to be doing to be more aware of the surroundings of the economy of this of society so You're constantly looking for you have to just be aware. Of who you are where you're going and not being paying too much attention to. The competitors and the people aside. It's really hard though it's hard to do because you find yourself looking. They're doing so good over there. Maybe I should change and go that way so knowing who you are is a huge part of that success for us. And, I love how you really made an emphasis on. Being okay with not being a good fit for everyone, and you know we talk about this even on social media. How you know people always give us questions on. You know my Gosh I I lost if I don't post for three days. I'll lose one hundred followers well if those people want on, follow you because you haven't posted three days. They're not your people. Like they were never people anyway, so I love that you have you have a focus and you understand your branch so well. The you know who you're catering to, and also you mentioned pivoting when you need to because. You know I think that people get so focused on the end goal, and if it's not if it doesn't turn out exactly how they anticipated that it would be, they give up right, so I think that's I. Love that so much and it kind of brings me to my next question on. The hardships entrepreneurship because I think that when people look from the outside, they see this beautiful brand that you've built a successful mom who's who's doing it all, but it takes so much work and behind the scenes that the people don't see. Can you walk us through some of those hardships that you faced in how you've kind of gotten through them? Oh yeah and I think. I'm so glad you brought that up because you especially on social media, people will see their, so they'll say. Where were you because I'm pretty active on my own, and then also I with the happy planner, but it like where were you? We Miss John there. I'm like you guys like if I would have shown. What I was doing for the past seven days, it was get up in the morning. Go to work. Stay there till seven o'clock have like meetings altay come home barely figure how I'm going to get the door dash before I wanna fall asleep, and then you know over it over and over again and I'm like it's not glamorous. It's hard There's a lot that goes into it. You know and you have to love it if you are somebody who has your own business or your own brand? You have to love it because it is not I mean I would say. Ninety, eight percent of it's not glamorous, but it's rewarding. You know it's something that you love, but you're GONNA have failures. You can't be afraid to work hard and fail. Because, you're GONNA. Do both of those all the time? And you know and learning from your from your failures for me. It's like you know we've had products that the ones that you've mentioned like happy planner that quadrupled the size of our business in the matter of two years But in the in between, and we had already had like a pretty successful company, and we were like well, but what you don't see, are all of the things where you come out with the product and you're like that's a dog. You Know Kate next. What do we? Can we learn from that? You know that's what you can't. You can't shy away from it, but nobody wants to see that nobody, but those are the lessons. Are you know what you're seeing? When when you see the happy planner is our success of you know Gosh over twenty we did that. It was fifteen years. I think into the our business before we hit that like Grand Slam, we'd had several. You know that was. This product was a triple. This one was a strikeout. This one was a base hit. And then you know, we never know we not. Even we're not even. Promise that we were going to have that big of a success that we just kept going and every time we did we learned something like Oh we didn't do. The packaging wasn't right or you know. Maybe we rent to too early into that trend, or maybe we didn't research it enough or maybe we learned something every time but I mean we've had. We've had product failures. We've had really difficult times in the economy I've been around here through September eleventh through the two thousand eight crash where the business was doing great, and then all of a sudden we've had were having to like have layoffs and figure out how to make the hard decisions. To keep your business healthy and around and surviving, and that's really hard. I mean that's something that right now we're going through. You know we have. Luckily we've got a great basin. We've had a very successful business, but this is a gut punch, and for a healthy business like ours. This has been really difficult and I can only imagine if you're struggling before this, but you just have to figure out you. It's almost like a business as almost like being a parent. You've got to make those tough decisions. Decisions you know that not everyone's going to understand. That's going to be hard. It's going to keep you up at night. and those those you don't see those on social media. No one's sharing like we had to really hard today and or have been meetings all day, and if they are, they're showing you the picture of themselves looking really cute, and you know here I am with my thing and it's. It's just not always like that victims hardly ever like that, so I think it's sometimes i. I've shared lots more real version especially on my own personal social media on instagram. Especially because I, think we do a disservice to. Everybody but to women's in general specifically where it's like if you're trying to be an inspiration and trying to share with other women, this is what if I can, we can all be here for each other. You, know in business, and this is how we can succeed. We are doing a disservice if we are just showing what our lives really never looked like And how how then do those? How'd you push through? How do you push through at the worst times for people that are listening that are entrepreneurs have launched their business or not seeing success right away. Like what have you learned to cut has kept you going. I think i. mean this sounds like something that my husband would go. No, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it because he's. My husband was our CFO CEO and. But for me, I, it's so much into an instinct. And then pushed through because I believe in my instinct very strongly. There's a thing like I feel like you know for us. We were very fortunate that the business that we started stayed healthy, and was viable forever, however I. Kind of look at our product launches in our product releases and different product types almost like many businesses, because there comes a time when you know this isn't working, you know there comes a time when you're like. We just need to let this keep going. We need to work at market. We need and you just you kind of. If you're really being honest with yourself, you know when it's like am I pushing too hard for something. That's not really making. Any headway or do I just need to keep working harder and I feel like You know if we ask ourselves how we done everything. HAVE WE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION? That's what I think. We need to kind of listeners, though because I just feel like if you are sitting here like. With a struggling business, let's say whether it's from the economy or just like I'm just not going anywhere It's hard because some people will say just keep going. Just keep going all the time. I don't think you should do that all the time. Sometimes you want maybe need to move onto. Something different doesn't mean you're not going to be. In business or start your own company, or but maybe this, isn't it? Maybe it is? Maybe you're just sitting there going. You know what this is going to be tough times, but I believe in this business i. know we have and we're going to keep going, so you kind of have to listen to that. You know you're got to say. Where are you? Are you? You know? Do I need to keep pushing through this, or is there something else that I need to be? Doing are exploring. It's such a weird time to because with everything going on I. Mean People are obviously doing less news less really to plan but I think there's still an opportunity and it's great that the product isn't just a manner planning out your daily activities that can also be used for intentional set goal setting in just writing down thoughts that you have journaling so I love that it's it's I town that regard Have you guys thought of ways to during this tough time? Kind of still sell your product in different ways or maybe thinking about different product lunches. Were you know what kind of has been brewing in the last few weeks, so it's like a perfect example of. Of evolving and pivoting right so like. Yes, when you're when we're looking at people that are planning your days just filled. My days were just like I couldn't even have the whole damn thinking. How tiny can I right because there's so much going on, but you know one of the other things we have in our product, minus positively journaling and guided journals, and then when you you know for us, it would be so tone deaf to be talking. Talking about we know you're busy. Let's just talk about busy busy busy schedule Hustle. Let's go because this is not the time for that, so we had to look at. What do we have in? You know in our offering. And what do we have What do we think is important or is there something else we can offer so for us? you know slowing down journaling 'cause for me. It's all about putting the pen to paper. I Love I love my. Technology and I. On my computer as well, but there's something to me about writing stuff down whether it's my schedule and prioritizing key efficient or whether it's like you know just journaling what I'm grateful for writing that down I did a whole like wellness like year in two thousand eighteen, where every single day for the entire year I journal. Like what am I feeling I thought it was going to be like more. Of a fitness thinks I like. My cholesterol is high, and I needed to lose weight, and I was going to do all these things I'm going to travel the stuff and what it became was. Oh my gosh, I'm realizing that I'm tagging my emotions now like when I would write things down the journaling became the biggest part for me is what I was feeling like I was really I felt very marginalized that meeting today, and I came home, and I think like I was going into hibernation. You know and I was angry and I was, but I was identifying my feelings. Why was I instead of just going like writing down my food log? You know it's like it wasn't helpful for me. I. Know How to eat healthy. But to realize that when I feel angry, I don't know what to do with those feelings and to eat them you know, or and I'm like an eye stuff them and I. Try and do anything in Canton. and that was like a realization for me, so we're kind of leaning into that and saying hey, right now when you're stressed or you're afraid or whatever it is that you're going through. What can you lean into? And how can you get in touch with your feelings whether it's do journaling or if you really do maybe you're a mom who is trying to work fulltime at home and also. Also home school your kids to the distance learning the. Maybe you need to be really efficient, so you need to you know. What is it that you need and listening to that? Do you need to be productive? Do you need to be kind of moving a little more inward, and then just writing it down and really getting out of your head and onto paper, so you can help process it. Yeah I need to start journaling. That is something that. I know he's for the whole year. Did you notice that it had a huge impact on? It changed the way I thought it totally and I'm the same way because I'm like I'm so famous for starting a journal. And then it's really good for like a couple weeks, and then it's empty, and I keep it and all these like you know journals that have a little bit done in the beginning, and then like I wish I could combine them all. And are they now? It's like so I just said I have never made like a year long commitment to myself I. Will I mean I will do anything for my kids. My husband, my family, my, you know the team of me me and my big ideas, but for me. It'd be like I'm always the first one to get shoved off the list and so I, said I need I was stressed because just like what you were saying. Our business was. Wildly successful that year, and the year before that but I was so stressed out. Because when you quadruple the size of your company, and you're trying to do the same things that you did before scaling it and learning how to do that so quickly is really stressful for a for a creative person who likes to do things like. As I'm inspired. And so. So dealing with that was huge, so all of these things that I saw which were gaining weight having high cholesterol, not sleeping at night, having hiring Zaidi I was thinking, it was because I'm out of shape or this and I didn't really realize accepted the journaling. which that's not what I started to do. That it was more than just that and so this journaling process just gave me. Such clarity and insight into my own feelings that I had no idea and I don't think if I if I just tried to do that at the very beginning for just a little bit I, don't think I would have. Gotten as deep because like doing it every single year someday the destroy today sucked. He knows the worst day ever and I didn't know how to see it through, but then as I got used to journaling just as an exercise every day. I learned to go. You know to just kind of. I guess like look a little deeper. Really. Shed light on stuff that I had no idea I was looking for. I feel like now. I'M GONNA. Go buy one of your journals because I'm so inspired by that by just what you said and I think that I'm someone that just keeps everything in my head and I talked to myself all day every day just. All the things that have to do all the things that should you know that are behind me? That I should have done yesterday it's that's great. I love that with you. You know you don't realize that when you're not like kind of emptying out. It's like for me I was not able to. I was not able to like think of I was kind of creatively blocked, and then I was like even motion. Lee blocked and they just didn't realize because I'm the same. I am an over thinker. I like I process everything and I just I kinda hold onto it and I get very wrapped up in my own head, and so it was just almost like an emptying of it and helps me sleep. Helped me do all that stuff, so my guys. I think you'll love it. Okay. I'm sold. journaling. Borsch, now let's talk a little bit about living intentionally, which is very much related to what we're talking about now, bite. What does it mean for you to live intentionally? And how can people cultivate a more meaningful life? Because obviously you found your passion, you work really hard at you. Know keeping your mind rate, and it seems like you're a very self, reflective person, but how how have you gotten there? I think. I've always been somebody who really likes. Growing looking inside I ask a Lotta questions of myself and. Other people like I. Try and tell my husband like I'm not really trying to psychoanalyze you. Even I would love to just get into everybody's head, but I think that there's so much we can learn. And one of the things that I have learned just by trying to grow as a person and being teachable. Has Been You. Know there's nobody in the world that is going to take charge of my life, my happiness, the things that I want that me. Matt what happens around me it doesn't you know we can all we can all be complaining about what's happening in the world with your job with your relationship, but when it really comes down to it, you're the one that's responsible for what it is. You want in your life and how happy you are. And so for me, it started with number one. I needed to. Learn how to love myself because I didn't love and accept yourself believe you're worthy of all those things, and then once you believe that those things started kind of coming into my life and a realize it's like you know. That was something that I had to really focus on. I had to work on with myself I am. We're a project, so if you go out there, and you really want a job, or you really want to start a business, or you want a relationship. You have to almost I think. Go for the life that you want with that same passion and I mean for me. It's just been about really starting to identify. What is it that you want? What is it that makes you happy? And how do you need to get that? I think that's why I'm a planner at heart, because living intentionally as really planning, you're trying to like you have to identify something first and then figure out how you're going to get it right, so it's like for me. Identifying. What makes me happy? What the name of our podcast plan? Happy Life at the Tagline for our company. Or for the for the happy planner, because really feel like you know if if for me, I need to identify what it is, that makes me happy right, and so I'm not somebody who is an Adrenalin Junkie I'm not someone who needs a lot of activity in my life, I need I need serenity a need. Calm I need a place to be creative I want to go travel I want to be with my family so when I. Start to really identify Granular Li, like what it is, that makes me happy and what I want I can easily say you know okay well. Then I am intentionally going to make the choices that get me closer to those things that I want and. It's really a responsibility. You know it's really taking responsibility for For the actions that we take and you know and I think it's empowering I actually feel like instead of going like Oh. My Gosh I'm responsible for all of these things in my life and no one's going to do about me that makes me. I think it just gives it gives me the power back to say you know. Stuff can happen all around me. Crap can just be going on like everywhere and internally I can live intentionally with what makes me happy, which what? And I can be. Responsible for especially this stuff that's going on in my head. You know so setting intentions of you know whether it's daily whether it's setting an intention for a year or whenever you're feeling like you need a little more clarity into. What am I working for I think it's a really powerful thing to do and I know sometimes when things get more popularity. They gained that whole like people in Oh. Yeah, okay. Setting intentions are doing all this, and it sounds a little Wu, and all that and I'm like it, but it really really makes a difference in how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make yeah, and it's all it all goes back to taking accountability, right and totally nine I. always talk about this on the podcast where a lot of people struggle with that I. Think they kind of have this. Poor me, mentality or you know I could never accomplish that I'm not ex- enough. I'm not educated. Enough I'm not. You know fast enough smart enough pretty enough whatever it is, and I just do I. Hope that if pe- when people listen to this episode, they really if they take anything from it. I really hope that they listen to what you just said. Because it's so powerful, that's such a like. I can't I've had a lot of things. People will ask me like well. Of course, it's easy for you to be happy because where you are today, you know and I said, but but here's what you don't understand is that? The reason I'm happy is not because I have all the things that I have the reason I have all the things that I have is because a happy positive person who believes that I have. that. What happens in my life is a result of you know of the way that I go about it and what I believe I deserve and how and then I can have those things I'm happy. And I'm positive period. Doesn't necessarily. Happy happy I just mean like I'm going to be content and positive and optimistic in my life. No matter what is going on and I have lived through a lot of things I've had like I said I shared with you. Guys had some traumatic things in my childhood that have happened I was had a child eighteen I had a lot of money issues. I'm growing up. I was in an abusive relationship with physically and mentally, and there's a have been drug abuse them I mean lots of things that I've had to deal with and. I could very easily any of those instances been. Why did this happen to me? I could never start a business because I don't have a college education and they don't have any money, and they don't have this and you know. What will people think of me and you know a? Growing and believing that you can do something, no matter what like having that resilience and having that. Like I'm just going to figure it out like I said I. It pretty much anything now I'm probably going to be more of a of a jack-of-all-trades master of none but that's okay. That's who I am, and that's really has gotten me where I'm at, but yeah. I just I think if anything I totally agree with you. If I share anything, it would be that no matter what your circumstances are in life. I think optimism and. And believing that no matter what happens to you, you will get through this, and you make something of yourself, and you can get the things that you want in life If you know if you're working, you work hard. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to be teachable if to learn to be confident, but all those things are things you can control. And it doesn't really matter what your circumstances are. So that would be something I mean. Yes. I love the product. Yes, I love our brand. Yes, I love all these other things, but that's just something that I think everyone can take with them throughout their lives. Such great life advice, and it's so true I feel like there's been looking back and reflecting on my own experiences to and the hardships that you know everyone has different forms of adversity, but how you respond and react to that is I think all the difference and I think it was a murray furlough that said everything is figure out. That just. When you said that because it's true like if you have that drive and that hustle enough to do what it is that you WanNa, do you can figure that all out and I think Alex also reiterated several times. There's this concept of just start now. Figure everything else out along the way as you go. Otherwise, you're never gonNA start. You're never going to achieve those goals but in terms of goal, setting and just organizational tips. I mean I feel like the ideal buyer of the happy planner is a very organized individual, or maybe they're aspiring to be more organized. So what are some good organizational tips just in general that people can start practicing and then apply to the happy planner. And I am not a naturally organized person. At like what you see back there on this video that we're recording over is not what it normally looks like I'm a creative person so I'm very like. Just kind of scattered and I will follow an idea like if I have an idea, I'm like I'm down that rabbit hole and. There's a chaos and mastic usually follows so being organized and using happy planner and using organizational tools is actually been essential for me to be like a productive society member of society or running a business, so one of my favorite tools and I think we kind of alluded to this a little earlier was getting things out of your head in getting him down I use a master What I call him Master Action Item List, so it doesn't matter if like you are thinking of I've gotTa. GotTa do cupcakes the Kids School I've got empty. The dishwasher I have a huge project that I'm working on. That's do every little thing. Take space up in your head and It doesn't really you know you're not really. They all have the same weight, so you're thinking constantly of the Dishwasher, the cupcakes and all of these things and you don't have the space to really think about Give yourself like. Hey, now. I'm really focusing on the project because there's so much stuff spinning in your head. And, so I think David Allen I think is his name he said you're. You're headed for having ideas, not storing them so like for me. It's like Oh, my gosh, that is so perfect so I take and had this one massive list actually I have to, but it's ones home in one's work, but usually for most people one will do and. If everything that comes out of my head is something that I have to do if it's an action item. I put it on my list and then I work from that list. Would plan my weeks when I plan my days, so I look at Monday and I think okay. I've got five meetings not lot. Stuff's going to be coming off that to do list, but on Tuesday I have one meeting in the morning and I had the whole day that I. have so I'll go off of my master list and then start working from there. I'M NOT GONNA forget my tasks that way. It's not going to be like oh shoot cupcake sting it. You have your your things that have due dates and everything so when I'm working from it I don't have fifteen sticky notes everywhere and a piece of paper that I wrote over there. That I got lost cause. I left it in my car and you're constantly then figuring out. How do I remember where it was that thing so keeping everything kind of in one place has been a big tip for me. the second organizational tip that I use I plan every Sunday I plan my week out every Sunday so or whatever the day before the start of week.' In for me. Mondays the start, so I sit down I. Take a look at what are all of the to the must do's appointments. The the deadlines that have to happen that week and get all those things in there and I. I plan everything out from date night with my husband every week. we're putting that in their first wins the time that I need one of my GonNa. Go exercise. When am I going to those put in appointments, and then I start to fill in again with things from that master to do. If I don't do that, then you know, there's things that come up and they're just time. Thief's and they come in to take in all of a sudden. You look and you've spent. Monday and you're thinking I've done nothing you know. It could be a week and you're going like shoot. There's nothing off my list. conversely you can take a look at that, and if you've been really productive, there've been times. I had no idea I could get that much done. So those are two tips for me to stay on and just to contend me. Being organized means being productive, because if I'm not productive, my stuff's all over the place. I get very easily overwhelmed, and that is not a good place for me to be. I was GONNA ask as well with with your master. Master list you add everything from like emptying the dishwasher doing laundry like every task so usually I have like if those are ongoing I will have just started doing this, which helped a lot, but all I kind of assign like if something that occurs every week for me I have a list. That's basically recurring tasks, so if you're if it's a cleaning thing, it's like an you know you've got changes sheets. You know the bathrooms or whatever I've got empty Roomba. because. Just, all those little things that are like take the trash out. Those are of things that I put off to the side which are more recurring tasks. And then when I sit down. Unday, I think you know empty room by the today's the in the evenings and do my meal planning here and those things happen all the time. The the Master List for me is you know the things that are their projects or their like like for me for my work one. It's like every time like I need to talk to him about this Call up this person and make sure I return this thing and check out on. All of the let's marketing meetings scheduled out. Make sure to reach out and so then I can cross them off. On Cross them off. And then when they're done, they're done, and of course you know once it gets to about halfway marked off at create a new list because it's prettier. And I like doing that, but yeah, the reoccurred things I keep separately. Of It, so we're GONNA. Get this all in. Your home about really what you're saying is it comes down to time management skills right, and yes, you know like you said there are some days ago by and I'm like. How did I just spent two hours scrolling through instagram? Checking emails bearing bearing myself in emails that really don't I don't need to get back to these people right away and you self reflect and go like that I see I'm busy, but to hours of that time was wasted. Time management is huge, and that was another thing that I uncovered in my memorabilia box that said think I was in like fourth grade and the teacher says like Stephanie needs to learn time management. Because it is true, because I do the same thing and I feel like there's so many times when people say I just don't have enough time and I'm thinking i. just spent four hours binge-watching. Whatever I. We. Do have the time and that's okay. If you're going, you know what I'm going to. It's going to be a binge party like I am going to be watching and It's fine but I think we need to be aware like you don't WanNa miss out on the things that you either want to be doing our need to be doing because you're not managing your time well and like I said it's a constant struggle. This is going to be something that I'm GonNa be. Be doing for my whole life. Because you know because I'm just not naturally inclined to be that way even, but it's a habit you know, and it's easier for me now, but managing your time well and scheduling it out is is a habit that we form you know, and it's just like it just becomes easier and then yeah, you find him. There's nothing to me like when I look at a list I'm like. Oh, my gosh look! How productive I was this week! That is such a good feeling when you even when you finish the day, and you're like man I was on point today like I knocked this off the list and I. Did this and you just feel good? There's just this feeling it brings. There's something about they say like an actual like I don't know what gets release, dopamine, or whatever that when you cross things off your list. That, yes, go. It is what? What are some other resources that you? You've enjoyed yourself or that? You would recommend to listeners in terms of time, management or building, good habits, organizational tools and practices. I think that like to meet. Okay decluttering. Making sure that you like you don't have because again. The more clutter at the worst and I know they say you know a messy desk or whatever they say, but the MESSI dozen. Beans or whatever and it is, but it's probably one who's just driving themselves crazy 'cause they can't find anything so developing somewhat of. Of A protocol for how you're GONNA. Plan your weeks and then also. One of the things I don't know if it's not really a resource, but it's something that I learned that. I kind of tend to first thing in the morning. I want to like answer all like you're saying I. Want to answer all my emails, and then of course I go down. Somebody's asking you know unsubscribe to all these things now and then I started subscribing, and then I go down, and so somebody told me to block off your days and at the beginning. Do the most important thing for you that you need to. To get done in the morning or whenever it is that you work I work best in the morning and freshest van, and then about three o'clock, I'm looking for anything else. I'm looking for something to snack on or any distraction and it, but some people are not also if you're like going, this is when I do my best work. Then make sure you can identify those times because you're gonNA. Find that you have. You're going to get more done. You'RE GONNA feel more efficient more. More productive and I think that's going to help I. Definitely, figure think that if you can figure out how technology and productivity work for you. I am kind of a hybrid between outlook and all of the technology that we can't. We have that really does keep us I've got when I have meetings. All my stuff is stored. I, don't WanNa. Right down the zoom. Call Identification Number and the password, and all these things you know, that's all stored in my outlook and I have a really good relationship between paper planning and my tech, you know. And then but I have a process every time I have like a nice system. I think I think that works I've been I've used a lot of productivity tools into honest with you. Nothing's really kept me more productive than just keeping it simple and planning things out and getting stuff done I mean it. It starts off great, but then it's just something else for me to. Keep track of so having something just right in my face whether it's my outlook, calendar or or my paper planner I just like I, said I've tried I've tried them all I've tried. And I know they were really well for some people, but for me it's just all about keeping it really simple and just getting stuff done. Yeah, and you know what I love the realness because we get questions, sometimes of like. How do you have a business and you work fulltime in your mind like? How do you do all the things? And I always kind of self reflect in its and I always think you know. You make time for what's important to you. That's the bottom line. We all have twenty four hours a day. I think that that hustle mentality isn't always helpful and isn't always positive, but at the same time if you have something that you want to accomplish. You just have to do it. You have to figure it out and do it. That's the bottom line. So Yeah? I love what you said on that. You know what I'd like to ask you Stephanie. If there's some sort of book or podcast or resource that you'd recommend for our followers, I don't know if you have any in mind that something that is is really impacted you in some way. Yes, so two different two different things so a book that basically just changed my life completely were was the gifts of imperfection by Bernard Brown. And it was one of those things where I just realized I don't have to be perfect I'm worthy of just the way I am, and that just really kind of just her whole. I love her so much that book. When I started to believe those things about myself, things change. They think changed in my life. They changed in my business That's why I think that no matter what you're looking at doing that. Inner work is I. Don't don't try and like. Get the promotion or getting the relationship, because you think that's GonNa make you more successful or happier, or whatever, because if you're not okay with that first step I it's all going to be empty. You know you're going to get the promotion, but it's not gonNA. Feel as great as you thought it was. Because you're. There's there's that whole in there that you're trying to fill so. That personally was amazing for me and then I love how I built this by Cairo's and. The podcast and for business. That's something that I listened to and I just. If, you're ever wanting to start a business and you think well I don't fit the typical either entrepreneur or business owner, or whatever I don't fit that mold listen to those stories there from every walk of life and every kind of story. It's so empowering to listen to them, but it's also really interesting to see how some of those people dealt with you know the setbacks, and how they how they innovated, and how they funded their businesses, and it's really interesting, and so, and they've covered just about like every aspect of business so I love those, too. Such third-rate episode actually heard how I built. This I've never listened to it, but I've heard it is great good, so that'll be one that'll that'll be added to my podcast list. podcasts our life right now in quarantine. Basically do anything and just have headphones on and listen to podcasts. For sure so good. Well this has been great.

I Feel Better Naked

"Today on sixty seconds psych I feel better naked. Whether gardening outdoors or hiking in the woods, getting back to nature is generally good for mental health. But what about just getting naked today we report on the first randomized controlled trial of naked activity on body image anxiety. The study by. On whist recruited fifty one British adults with a simple, add on twitter. Hang out with others. Drink some wine and get paid ten quid that were then randomized into one of two rooms in a north London bar. In the first room, they mingled and drank with clothes on in the second room. They were met with an instruction. That must've felt like a surprise for this experiment. All you have to do is one enjoy yourself in the company of others for forty five minutes, and to do so naked. All participants are expected to disrobe for this part of the experiment, and they all disrobed without incident. The result socializing naked reduced body imaging Zaidi. It also improved body appreciation, but this effect seemed mediated by the reduction in negative feelings about one's body. The intervention had no effect on the perceived attractiveness of others. What in the devil does this all mean well? They didn't recruit a clinical sample, so it tells us nothing about how nude interactions would affect people with eating disorders, dismore disorder or social anxiety. But it does help us understand and empathize with patients who pursued the nudist lifestyle, and that was likely the sponsors goal for the study, which was funded by the British Nature Ism group unnoticed

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

Academy postpones 2021 Oscars, will announce new diversity rules

"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown Twenty Years Matt Bellamy my usual Banter Buddy on the business and Matt the Ninety Third Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed from February twenty eighth to April twenty fifth for. Obvious reasons. The eligibility period for films which normally would end on December thirty first. It's been extended to February twenty eighth twenty twenty, one. Because of you know. These films have not had opportunity to play or necessarily get the kind of attention. They would normally get. That's the argument now. The Oscars has been pushed before in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, due to La Flooding, and then in sixty eight because of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King and again in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, because of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan so I. Think it's fair to conclude that. When they pushed the Oscar ceremony something very very bad is happening as it is now, but this was necessary. However, if you're ABC, just from a business point of view, this is bad news. Also yeah I mean there's A. A couple ramifications here one is for ABC I mean this is their super bowl. They count on a ton of AD revenues about hundred forty hundred fifty million dollars in ad revenue last year that they can usually count on in February that is now pushed out of q one into cue to if the Oscars take place as planned which are that's a big question mark. Will we have big scale events with celebrities walking a red carpet even in April of next year? We don't know the second is the impact on the film released calendar because. Because assuming at some point that movies do comeback and we start to get movies released in theaters again these big year end movies that everybody sees every year and you know come out around Christmas time and get a lot of the awards attention and go on to win Oscars that window is now going to shift into the January February march window, which is going to change a lot of strategies for these film companies because you don't now have to crowd. You're movie into that year end corridor in order to make an impact with Oscar voters. Voters, you can give it a little bit more time and that February. March time period is usually a dumping ground where you don't put your best movies now. Maybe you're going to put your best movies there because you know, you can get Oscar attention as well as some box office. Yeah, and what's really still very unclear win theaters will open theaters, clinging to to July, as is as our Warner Brothers with Christopher Nolan's ten and a couple of Disney with Milan they push tenant two weeks i. don't really get how that solves anything but. It makes us so they're not I now Milan will be I will be the Guinea pig, so to speak and then Warner. Brothers we'll have tended after that, so they won't be the Guinea Pig the other thing that is. Speaking of Guinea Pigs. The academy is going to try to do require going forward diversity as a criterion for eligibility for Oscar and they haven't specified what that means I I would certainly not argue with the goal Hollywood has been very very stuck for a very long time in terms of diversity goals, but you know it's something where they have to be very careful. You can't just mandate something like that without really choosing how it works, you know and and again. I want to stress how I totally support that goal, but you're sort of a strange territory telling creative people you must do X. and we don't know what xs yet, but you know. This is something where I think. There's a swimming Zaidi that it will end up being like the most popular picture category that ultimately just sort of went away. This should work, but the question is how yeah! It's a big question because you know for years and years, the academy has always said that the diversity problem is not the academy's problem. It is Hollywood's problem, and it's just at the Oscars are reflection of what the industry is doing, so you shouldn't blame the academy for the diversity problems of Hollywood. This is a flip of that. They're saying we are taking this on. On as an organization and saying that you will not be able to be eligible for an Oscar unless you adhere to some basic diversity principles, and they have yet to articulate what those are, so they just WanNa.

How Does Agoraphobia Work?

"Doesn't it seem like some people aren't afraid of anything? But you know what those people? They're phonies because they're scared of chainsaw clowns just like everybody else. They're just better at hiding it. Everybody has fears. But not everybody has a phobia medically recognized. Phobias are different from normal fear in that they provoke a very intense reaction they're unreasonable or unwarranted for instance being intensely afraid of guy with a shotgun in a ski mass while that kind of makes sense but being intensely afraid of balloons doesn't so much and finally they can interfere with a person's ability to live their life but there are other anxiety disorders that while very real and potentially very disruptive of a person's life are far more insidiously. Vague and Agoraphobia is one of them according to the DSM. Five every year one point seven percent of adolescents and adults will be diagnosed with agoraphobia. So what is it well? A lot of people have heard the term and have a vague idea of what it means but a lot of these ideas are wrong or at least they don't tell the whole story so for instance some things that a Gora phobia are not are a fear of crowds a fear of wide open spaces or a fear of being outside though all of these may be a manifestation of actual agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is actually a broader complaint that will often include some or all of the fears previously listed so for some general layperson definitions to help. You get the gist of it here. We go agoraphobia. Is A type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and often avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped helpless or embarrassed. That's from the Mayo. Clinic OR AGORAPHOBIA. Is An intense fear and anxiety of being in places where it is hard to escape or where help might not be available. Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds bridges or of being outside alone. That's from the National Library of medicine at the National Institutes of health. One More AGORAPHOBIA is a fear of being in situations where scape might be difficult or help wouldn't be available if things go wrong. That's from the National Health Service in the UK so really agoraphobia is more broadly the fear of being trapped in a vulnerable situation especially when exacerbated by an existing predisposition to panic disorder. Very often the person with agoraphobia specifically dreads experiencing a panic attack or other panicked like symptoms in a situation where such inexperienced would be especially inopportune according to the DSM five and this is the latest edition of the professional diagnostic handbook for mental health professionals. According to that to meet the diagnostic criteria for a goer phobia. You must have quote market fear. Orange Zaidi about two or more of the following scenarios standing in line or being in a crowd being outside of the home alone using public transportation being an open spaces or being an enclosed spaces so the DSM five reports that the person with a Gore phobia fears or voids these situations because of thoughts that escape and might be difficult or might not be available in the event of developing panic like symptoms or other incapacitating or embarrassing symptoms. What physically happens is the following according to the US National Library of medicine these symptoms. Show up when you're experiencing agoraphobia chest. Pain or discomfort choking or shortness of breath dizziness or fainting nausea rapid heartbeat sweating and trembling also according to the DSM five. You can only meet the criteria for diagnosis. If you always are almost always have the fear response to these situations. You actively avoid these situations or require the help of a companion. The level of fear you feel is disproportionate to the threat represented. This condition lasts for six months or more the fear anxiety or avoidance causes coat clinically significant distress or prevents you from living a normally functional life and the suite of symptoms. You experience is not better grouped under another diagnosis for example if your fear only occurs because you fear people's reactions to perceived flaws in your physical appearance this might be a body dismore disorder instead of general agoraphobia. So if you have intense persistent debilitating fear. That you'll begin to have a panic attack or another embarrassing or incapacitating episode while you're stuck in a place or situation you can't get out of or where you can't find help. You might have a Gore phobia. We'll that's a long one and this can have some really serious consequences for example more than one in three people with Gora Phobia are completely homebound and unable to work and sometimes people inappropriately self medicate with the abuse of drugs and alcohol. Agoraphobia often develops out of an existing panic disorder for example if a person experiences a panic attack in particular type of place say for example like an airplane or an elevator. He or she might start to avoid ever being in that situation again over time. This can develop into full blown agoraphobia. Something like Agoraphobia can sometimes be difficult to accurately diagnose since it's associated with something like panic disorder and because the functional symptoms may resemble those of problems with different causes for example may dread and avoid flying an airplane because of a Gora Phobia or maybe simply because you feared death by plane crash. The situational phobia is outwardly similar. But it happens for very different. Reasons are all right. So maybe you're wondering if I've got a Gora Phobia. How do I treat it? Well the most common treatment responses are a combination of cognitive behavioral. Therapy an antidepressant medication. Cognitive behavioral therapy is basically a common form of psychotherapy where the therapist helps the patient talk through thought processes and common behaviors and then replaces those bad thoughts and behavior patterns with better ones antidepressant. Medication could also include drugs. Such as selective Serotonin reuptake inhibitors or s our eyes or Serotonin Neuro. Epinephrine reuptake inhibitors. So if you or someone you know are suffering from agoura phobia. There's help out there. All you have to do is seek it out.

One of the Boston Area's Latino Immigrant Cities Is the Epicenter of the COVID-19 Crisis in Massachusetts

"I I. You know I'm a journalist. I cover a lot of national issues but I'm also you know house live in the Boston Metro area on the south side of the city. You're up on the north side. Chelsea is the for me for a lot of laughing. Estonians Lead Latino Immigrants Section of Metro Boston in a lot of ways I looking at the statistics and seeing happening Can you explain the situation to people that don't under? You know our our our listening to this. The first time outside of Boston and put it into the context. Because I it's the numbers are just startling. They are they are really got it all and unfortunately for those folks who are joining to me and Chelsea a one point eight Square Mile Community. And as you stated it's done in that community that is just north of Boston and he had been an officially declared as having the worst outweighs a whole the nineteen cases the entire state so the numbers that we're looking at is as of the site and again the information. It's teaching still constantly by the time that speaking. I'm pretty sure he's number. Got Even higher but as a black knight part infections late is that a hundred and six per every ten thousand and the so and just to put that into perspective. The member I mentioned we're one eight hundred blasting. The are the second third largest city in the state to just imagine coupling the fact that we have working families that are living in apartments just up to fifteen people in three bedrooms treatment and on top of that we have families that in the fast economic signs have to three jobs just to make an and one of those jobs are either virtually gone so the folks are unemployed and on and on the other end of the also have other guys it in fourteen essential employees. These are folks who are in the front lines. They are working at Dunkin donuts. They're looking at market basket. Starch working at the services area so you have for that are essential workers who it's impossible for them to physically defense and the people that are trying to ask everyone to follow but you follow the physical distance so they stack you You can find it the and then you have other fault somehow completely knocked your job no income and on top of that you know we have been for. Decades has experienced environmental injustice shoes So wearing industrial city that has a high volume of chuck traffic and We're have coastal cities in the air force. So you couple of all of this and later on off and you have the perfect time for a five thousand of of this Epidemic what are your constituents saying. What are you hearing the story before because I do? WanNa talk about the state response in the federal response but I also wanted here with the voices of the community of the same cause. I do feel like for me being here in Boston. You know covering what's happening in the Boston area. I'm not hearing those voices. So what are those voices telling you? And what can you share? Because I think that's the numbers that you reach like those comparible your city. I mean this is I. Just. I'm just. It's mind boggling to think about this so sure from what you're telling you first before we get into sort of the response so let's see now the the experience there's been fighting there's a lot of exciting from my residents. I cannot tell you how many folks call me and me and to me. Facebook packages telling me of how they have been confirmed with survivor. They have been unemployed for over a year. I'm sorry for over a month. They've been unemployed for over a month. They have confirmed that the case they do not have any money to go shopping even before John for their children. She has no idea how they're going to get money. And that's one of the biggest concerns here you know. And not and not only my family's on the ensuing destroy them the trauma and shrimp farm our dispatchers who are taking these calls and taking these cases are also go into emotional breakdown when they hear The Need for money for the The the need for some families can't see them doing their chiefs. Get Emergencies Actors. They their kids. Which is true of freight is only out and spreading the virus. So again like it's heartbreaking and doing the best that we check on our end but we need more veteran wild and the city is under voluntary. Twenty four seven lockdown right now. Is that correct? That's our people Our understanding the the I mean are people you know following it or I mean I I feel Zaidi and then getting that. It's kind of like Whoa. I mean I feel like bishop happens like it literally happened. You know and you know people are falling Massachusetts. Although I think you're right I think when you have more people that are essential workers that are working in industries. That are feeding us in our. You know doing other things and taking public transportation and coming back to dense population. All the ingredients were there and it seemed like no one you know. We shouldn't have been surprised as as people in Boston that this is. What's happening People now you know I I think taking it seriously put tyrod or their language issues. Are Their immigration. Now is like what what did give me a more of a picture because I know there's a response. I never thought about the response that I I also think people don't understand can there? Yeah you know. There's y'all yeah people Boston. So a little bit more the for their cellular energy so and then you go back to that The leasing why city manager trump and see no decided. She's making twenty four seven because don't WanNa be political. Be and fog maybe blowing up all their population right. So that's one of the key things right so I know that other things they're doing is that they see waking the curfew. They are giving them a ticket for two hundred dollars is. Here's the penalty for chased. But again you're getting community that is real incomes who barely has money to afford luxuries is they're out of their jobs for listing want. It should be picketing folks three hundred dollars penalty for being outside and not falling curfew hours. So what we're focusing on is coming in. He emphasizing that and and I thank you for stage to continue this important dialogue which is getting very serious and as much as we are. Afraid to be alarming. The numbers are alarming. People are dying I last night because nothing that and we want that number to stop but he then you know my mom personally. She's a factory worker. My mom works. I think we'll hop factory and she has to go to work every day. Actually thirty in and you know she. One example of the other example appear in in Chelsea family has to choose between. You might go to work so I can get money and food on the table and and save a little bit team. Nice Munch or stay and a lot of folks who have to work as mentioned the happy. The public transportation is virtually honestly suitable to be physically spent in the

Finding Calm in Chaotic Times With Erin Pickney

"No question that we're experiencing a chaotic time right now and we've heard so many concerns from people who are worried about cove nineteen about the financial toll is already taking and what this means for the future where all learning how to manage this new normal to frankly doesn't feel normal at all. The good news is there are ways that we can find calm in the midst of this chaos and today we've invited Aaron. Pick me back to give tips on how to make the most of our current situation. Aaron is a Nashville based therapist specializing in recovery from anxiety and depression. And she's here to give a few suggestions on how we can decrease wearing Zaidi and increase our sense of wellbeing. Aaron welcome back to live happy. Now it's great. Have you on the show again thanks. It's great to be back. Well we have a lot to talk about today because as you talked earlier we didn't really expect me talking on the arrogant this soon. But there's a lot going on and a lot of things that people need some reassurance with and you are the person we need to talk about this all right happy to be. Obviously there's a lot of anxiety going on right now and I think one of the things I want to understand is what is causing us so much anxiety. I hear different things from different people as a therapist as a professional. What is it that you see causing us the most anxiety right now? You know. It's interesting because you would think more people were being super anxious about getting sick. Really what most people seem to be anxious about is being isolated or potentially having like a loss of work which could lead to a lot of really negative consequences for people said those kind of seemed to be more prevalent things that people are really anxious about as opposed to like the virus itself interesting and with that kind of anxiety and the fact that we are working from home most of us. We are feeling more isolated. Does that just feed the anxiety to be situation? No absolutely because you know when you're going into an office and you're talking people and you kinda get to have just general social time with people that kind of low humming society that some people live with goes down a little bit. They have other people to share their experiences with. And you just you're not stuck in your own head whereas when you're at home and especially if you happen to live alone and you're not reaching out to other people socially like it's just you and your thoughts and those thoughts can get really out of hand really quickly. Yeah and even people like right here in Nashville. I know we live in a building where they have shut down the gym downstairs and our cross fit. Jam is now closed so there goes at outlet for physical release so if people are in that situation what can they then do to kind of escape some of that anxiety because for like that's what I would do is like I'm GonNa go work out or I'm going to go do some yoga now? Just got more difficult to do that. Yeah wow so. I think the first thing is to try to work out at home if you can. There are a ton of great yoga videos online. I think Yoga with Adrian. One that's like super popular but there's a ton of 'em based on your particular preference in skill level. So you could do that. You can also just like dance. That is one of my personal favorites. It just sort of cranked up the music and dance and if you live in an apartment building and you don't want to make your neighbor's apartment here the music you can just throw on some headphones dance with it. Which is a great way. I also a big fan of singing. While dancing it's great cardio might disturb the neighbors if you're not great but it's also a fun thing to do and then depending on where you live so like over where you are. This may be harder my part of town. I can go for a walk and not come in contact with another person or at least not in close contact. So that's something we can still do. It's also possible to like some of the parks and things. Different places are closing down but you can drive out to a less populated area and go for a walk. Bear fat something that works for you. What are some other things that we can be doing? Then that will help us reduce some of this anxiety so I think kind of hearkening back to our last conversation really limiting social media in the news I've had to turn off notifications from the news stations on my phone which historically have never been an issue but right now. I'm getting a notification every time there's another positive test that's not helpful to me or my mental health and social media is just sort of running crazy with all kinds of really drastic things that maybe aren't realistic or not. What are happening in misinformation. That's out there. If you can choose to have your social media be healthy place. And you've only got healthy people. You're interacting with unhealthy foods that you're following that's great and if it's not then maybe reduced fat or cut it out for now. I know a lot of people though. They're kind of drawn to the news right now. Kind of like a bad car accident where it upsets them and it's disturbing for them to watch but they seem to not be able to stop and I'm originally the way that our society set up now we can watch twenty four seven on multiple stations and yes we can get completely inundated. So how do we balance that kind of a need to know with need to step away I think for me turn off notifications or even fully deleting apps on your phone and then having a check point in the day so I given the rapid nature that things are changing? You might check in the morning check in midday when you have lunch and then check in the evening to see so that you still have access to the important information as things change. But it's just not hunted new notifications as everything I know when are at home working. It's a lot harder. 'cause like doesn't have the TV on in the background right. But that's when I would recommend go into something like a net flicks era Hulu and just watching. There's all kinds of great. Tv shows that are perfect background TV to have running and just not have the news that constant thing you want to check in on it you just don't want it to be constantly checking in on you. I liked that because one thing we started doing and I'll be honest. I started doing this after the elections in two thousand sixteen. Is I no longer watch my news live I I record it and there are certain things I need to fast forward through or upset me and so that's something that I've found helpful right now? Is it's like okay. I WANNA get enough to know like I want this part of the story that tells me the facts of what's going on but I don't need the details. I don't need to know how many more people died in Italy today. You know look through that. And just get the overview. Yeah and another option is to do away with the new traditional sources altogether and look at the CDC website maybe your local health department. They'RE GONNA BE PROVIDING UPDATES at are important information for you to know without necessarily getting the. There's another confirmed case of coveted nineteen in Nashville or wherever you may live and so that is sort of helpful as well. That's fantastic and one thing that I found today. Greater Good Science Center had done an update of ten positive things that have come out of this so far and gave some brighter point that things discoveries were making or some recovery's that are happening that aren't being reported so much so that's interesting to like you can look for some new sources such as greater good or some of these more positive mindset places that are going to provide you with a little bit of uplifting information. Yes that's a great idea okay. So we've handled social media in the news. Got that conquered. What about the social distancing? What's here's the deal. We spend our whole time talking about. We need social connection. This is so important for us in our say. Now you gotta get away from people right so social distancing not social isolation. I think that the thing people jumped to his. Oh Gosh I can't have any contact with anyone who doesn't live in my house will know you can. There's a lot of creative ways to maintain contact with people while still maintaining a minimum of six to eight feet apart. Ideally are you going to go to dinner with somebody right now? We'll know probably not but can you face time in a friend to dinner you can. Can you play like my wife and I were talking the other day about playing Yahtzee with my mom's face time because it's a game that we can all play but we don't have to be in the same spot. There's lots of things like Jack Box. Tv that you can kinda set up using zoom or something like that with screen sharing that you can play with your whole family. So there's a lot of things that are out there and if you think about it from the perspective of we actually have a little bit more time when we're working from home because we're not commuting anymore and when we take our lunch break we literally walked to the kitchen going somewhere to eat so you actually have a little bit more time to reach out to people into get your work done and that's you can actually spend some more time like intentionally calling that friend that haven't talked to you in six months or spending some time facetime ing with your nieces and nephews. You don't get to see very often if we look at it as an opportunity of like okay so just because we can't see each other physically in the same space doesn't mean that we can't still interact. That's a really good point because this is could be a nice time to kind of rekindle some of that communication that gets lost in our busy busy day we end up not reaching out to that best friend from high school that we know we want to talk to. But it's like I'm just so busy I haven't done it the exactly and I'd seen one person posted something about like each day. Ask Quarter you grateful for who you contact. Today was the second thing. I thought that was really interesting that that it was I every day to make it intentional to contact someone different. Oh yes definitely. I've had a few people talk about doing not really a bucket list but kind of like a a list of people that they WANNA make sure they contact while this is happening and so they're sort of setting a pace for themselves with like okay so if this goes on for a month then that means I have thirty days so I have forty two people WANNA call. That means. I need to call every day. You know trying to make sure that they're getting through that process of okay. I'm going to reach out to all of these people and actually reestablished these relationships because I can right

#362: Answering the Call of Holy Work with Luke LeFevre

"Conversation is with our chief creative officer at Lukla fever. He's a part of our operating board and leads a team of over one hundred and fifty people and over the past several years. He's walked through a process personally. That has helped him uncover principles which make up the creative center of great work worked at a set apart. Work that is meaningful work that is holy. The first five words of this ancient book called Genesis which was written a long time ago. Twenty Five Hundred Years before Christ was even around like that was when it was collected based off of these stories that were orally transmitted for thousands of years before that in the first five words of this ancient book are in the beginning God created. And then you know creatives yeah. Great critics love that but then it gets to humans and it says hey. Let's make them in our image. The only thing we know about our which God says let us make them in our image our image. The only thing we know about his image is that he was a creator That's the only piece of evidence you have up to that point in this old ancient book and so that's the beginning and then later as this creation happens in man pushes against it rebels. God's plan to be with people is distorted he then starts the slow process of polling people back to him and eventually he finds this character. And I'M GONNA mess up how to say his name so listeners. Please help me. I think it's bell ultimately I always say Brazil and I think I messed it up but eventually yeah. It's a little or something like that. The law in Exodus thirty one. It says I filled him with the divine spirit to create many things. Like I could look it up here. God filled with the spirit of God in wisdom and understanding and knowledge and all manner of workmanship design artistic works to work gold and silver and bronze and cutting jewels for setting in carving wood into work in all manner of workmanship. Okay great thanks for the Bible lesson again but really this guy. Bazil was creating a place for God to dwell with us on the Earth again That was his assignment. It was his assignment and if This commentary in the Bible. I was reading. It says the first person the Bible mentions as being filled with the spirit. Was this guy and I read that a couple years ago and I was like what. How do I know that as a person who's been working for a long time I think work? Why is work inherently creative because we are made in as humans? We are made in God's image what we know about God's image is that he was a creator and he wants to manifest his ideas through us like he did with this zillow guy in like. That's just like really profound in. I think that work that stuff we have inside us that we want to make or perform or build or teach or organize or whatever has been in there since before we were born. And I think it's because we are made in God's image to create think so often especially today it's really easy to get wrapped up in that word creative and think that that's a musician. That's an artist. That's a painter. Maybe that's a graphic designer may be threatening if they're good or not but it sounds like you're broadening the scope of what is creative. Were hundred percent when I was five years old. I went to my aunt's house in the summer and we had a week long. We stayed with her and I had to to her church and those at our church and there was a drawing contest and a church at Church it was like drawn. Noah's Ark so I drew Noah's Ark and I'm like I don't know you just draw. Draw the arts or a couple of animals on their turn it in well. There's no big deal to me. I saw it in my head at drew. The picture turned in while the teacher was like putting them up on the board in. I'm like Oh month month. Pretty good you know. I just remember thinking that and then the next kids look like a banana in the next kids. Look like you know something else and I was just sitting there thinking like holy cow. I just might win this thing. I just drew the Ark and did I ended up winning and it wasn't like Oh good. Someone's recognized my talent. It was I don't know I just saw the arc so I drew the Arkansas. The other kids didn't do that now. I was talking to another friend of mine and he was like I remember being pretty young and sitting in a pizza hut and I saw that the pizza cost ten ninety nine and I asked my dad how much the pizza cost and he goes. Oh a dollar ninety nine. In this friend he goes business he understood. It costs two dollars to make it and they charge ten. So that's how you make money. How old who's like seven okay. So as a seven year old he was understanding the concept of profit margins xactly. I never had those thoughts. I just figuring booth. Yes so the thing in me was to draw like I could just see things. I could connect dots. It could do that stuff. His was this business thing. I have other examples like my brother-in-law Brent huge entree fan has been through a lot of our stuff. He's always since as long as I can remember. Been the guy who ran the sound. Did the video had the CD's when he was a kit like he recorded all the movies. You know when you record movies on VHS. Three movies on one six hour he was. Just he's always just been drawn to this video technology side of things and I think it's because that is God's gift to each of us and they're all different but it's all made in his image which is to create because I think that thing were drawn to whether it's business organization drawing speaking whatever it is that is the creation God wants to create with you. Yeah that's amazing so I mean it's almost like what you're talking about is like as kids. We are creative. Yes we collective wheat. Everyone that's listening. This everyone the planet we are creative and then the thing that pulls us away from that has all these layers that we put on top of ourselves. But what you're saying. Is that our core? There is something creative inside of us under percent. I don't know what it is for each person. It's different but my wife we home school. We've got four kids. She when she was little she remembers setting up all her dolls in the basement and she was in front of these dolls and she was teaching on a whiteboard and she was probably five years old and now she loves it. And there's the slow poll towards that thing that has been in use since before you were born. I think in. There's there's relationships the squash it. There's parents that squash it or encourage it. There's just lots of reasons why you believe it or don't believe it but I think there is a pole towards something that has been in there since before you were born in. That is the creative so it almost seems like the way we can properly maximize our role in the president is to recognize that there is a piece of us that is creative that is demanded to be effective here. I think so. I don't know if it's demanded I think you can deny it. I think you can let fear or ignoring it. Or who am I to do that? Cover it up or years of pushing it away or things like that that can cause you not to use it. There are people. I know who haven't followed this thing and they're lazy or they don't do something with it and so maybe a little bit sad. It's sad it is sad if you don't use the thing it's really sad because you're not doing the gift I think. I think I believe that God wants to make this stuff with us. And he's like hoping we do you know giving us opportunities to do it. So is owning a small business inherently creative work. One hundred percent depends on how you got into it but I think there is a pole towards this thing The people I talked to. I did an entree mentoring session at the last ems. And I was talking to this guy. I'm blanking on his name but he ran an ambulance company an Independent Ambulance Company and it was like so. Why did you start it? And he was like. Oh we'll just something to do and I'm like no come on a wage cheaper in ways to just find some you and he goes. Well I worked at one of these places and they. It was just not a great experience. I just wanted to do something different. And I'm like okay. But what about the ambulance thing that? Why are you drawn to that? It's not just well. I didn't like the way that they did it. He was like I just love helping people. I just love helping people and he gets to do it like people in their most hardest time of need. And that's the real root I bet you. He's always been a sweet kid who was a helper when he was a kid. And that's the poll. And if you are oftentimes I think and data I don't have you know spreadsheets and stuff if you aren't working in that thing that you've been drawn to that's wearing Zaidi comes that sort of thing comes. That's where that sadness comes at. You were just talking about like if you can't express somehow that thing that's where you get stuck in alcoholism or a addictions and things like that I think. Because you're you're trying to squash or quiet this feeling that's been inside of you and Escape Reality Game. That's a great word for you

Nourishing The Self {Part 1 of 3}

"Good evening and welcome to The start of our February Meditation series which is called Nourish the the self and the series is really attention to the physiology of vulnerability because what we do when we meditate is sit down with ourselves just as we are which weather we planet or not ends up being a pretty vulnerable experience experience and a whole host of things happen when we're in that space of being very real and open with ourselves most of which feel vaguely uncomfortable and so the For Monday nights in February what we'll be doing is talking about why that might be the case. And what can we do to ensure our safety our comfort comfort and our flourishing as we build a practice so If you have meditated for like more than a minute I'm willing to bet that you too have had the experience of being like this doesn't necessarily feel super relaxing. Lovely sometimes it does right sometimes. It feels feels relaxing. Lovely but sometimes it feels Feel more anxiety or you feel more sadness sir or you feel more anger whatever it is you started with you. Sit Down to meditate. And you're like WHOA. This is super present for me and it feels like more more. I feel like I'm getting angrier when I meditate or I'm feeling more anxious when I meditate and so the first thing to know is that that is incredibly credibly common and not incorrect. It's not actually that your anxiety is increasing or your anger is increasing. But now all of a sudden you've decided I'm GONNA sit down and not do anything else except feel it and what we normally do is feel a little bit of it and immediately go. Oh I don't WanNa feel that so I'm going to turn on the TV. I'm going to online shop. I'm going to like do a bunch of working. Get very busy and go very fast. I'm going to go for a run. I'm going to do anything I can think of to distract myself from what I'm deeming to be Inappropriate motions or emotions. That aren't allowed like anger. Like fear like shame like anxiety anything that we might deem to be bad and so now we've said Oh well I'm supposed to be meditating. That's the thing right now. Some in a meditate and we sit down we close our eyes and now there's actually no way to distract. There's no way to numb or to run. And and so all of this Feeling starts to emerge the joke. Is You know the therapist says to the client. You should meditate tate. You'll feel much better. And so the client goes and meditates and comes running back to the therapist. What are you talking about feel better? I'm feeling all the Zaidi. I'm feeling all my sadness and feeling all my grief and the therapist is like wonderful your feeling your anxiety. Better your feeling your sadness better your feeling your grief better. You're right so that's sort of the joke is the idea is you're supposed to we're supposed to be learning how to feel what we feeling. Because this is what happens somewhere at a very early age. We learned that certain emotions are not okay and so we developed whatever her personal coping mechanism. We develop to shut that down right whether we like Tampa down and we're one of those people like it's fine. It's all fine everything's fine or or one of those people who's like grits their teeth and gets in the car and start screaming out loud in the car or you know there's a million ways right that we can cope with these emotions that we've deemed aimed inappropriate but the minute we block ourselves off from one part of the emotional spectrum it starts to block lots of pieces and now even some of the pieces that we really wanNA access like joy like equanimity like a sense of peace of safety now. We can't really feel those either because we've decided were coming part of it and we don't get to pick and choose either were willing to feel the spectrum or we don't get to. I feel the spectrum and so our practice our meditation practice is learning. How to the COM-? Tom Comfortable with discomfort. That's really what I think. The truth of a mindfulness. Meditation practices is learning to become comfortable with discomfort which may be on the surface. Doesn't sound great but let me assure you. It is great because when when we learn how to be comfortable with discomfort this enormous array of safe and accessible emotional shaw experiences open to us so we get to participate more fully in the moments of our lives because we don't have to pick and choose anymore. This one's okay. This one's not and it's not that we can just sort of snap our fingers and now everything's okay. I'm just going to be willing to be here with all of it. It takes time it takes practice and safety encourage to be able to tap into some of the emotions that we might be shutting down or have have shut down for a long time so we do it just in these little moments of meditation when we can when we feel safe and we're building holding our tolerance. I listened to this. This was quite a while ago but I listened to this podcast. If you know me you know. I Love Radio Lab. It's one of my favorite podcasts of all time and they did this really cool episode. The question that prompted the episode was if a human a a dog and a crow. I think look at a rainbow. Do they see the same thing. And so they went on this lake. Vast exploration John of how different SPEC- and the answer is no right. Like we see very different Spectrums of Rainbow. And there's some particular kind of shrimp that can see a BA- Jillian more colors than all of us which I thought was fascinating. Point of that is humans. Humans are a bit the same way when it comes to the rainbow of emotions and so two of US might be seated here on the Mat and be open to incredibly different amounts of emotion that were willing to experience in a moment and because of that we experienced the moment differently

"If I told you that there was a simple practice that could lower your stress improve your health and boost your overall wellbeing. You might be a little bit skeptical. But today's guest has a science based solution that can do all those things and so much more. Jessica Ortner is a New York Times bestselling author and producer of tapping solution the breakthrough documentary film on. ESPN tapping. She's here today. To explain to us what happiness how it works and how you can start using it today to change your life for the Better Jessica. Welcome to this episode of live. Happy now thank you so much for having me. This is a wonderful topic and I know a lot of our listeners are probably familiar with it but a lot of them probably aren't art because tapping has been around for a while by. I think it's really just now getting a lot more popular so I guess a great starting point is to have you explain what tapping it is. Yes absolutely we are not talking about tap dancing a different time of type of tapping where you use your finger to tap up on acupressure points. When we're feeling overwhelmed and stressed a lot of times? We naturally put our hand on our chest or we put our kind of touch our temples the bridge of our nose. Those are acupressure points. That help us relax. What we're doing here is where getting clear on the thought that creating the physical going Zaidi? And then we begin to stimulate these acupressure points and as we do that what happens is you get to the point where you can think that thought or you can think about the anxiety but now your whole body feels calm. This is perfect for those who tried to think positive thoughts or they try. Try to think their way out of a problem but the anxiety justice incredibly physical that they have trouble moving forward by tapping on his acupressure points. You help relax the body and lower your anxiety it because it's also known as EFT or emotional freedom techniques so can you kind of explain why it's called that yet yeah emotional. Freedom techniques is a term that started with a man called Gary Craig who really followed the work of another gentleman called Roger Callahan Callahan. Who was teaching therapist? How to begin to use these acupressure points with their clients? The system was a little bit more difficult in the sense that you would tap on different acupressure points depending on the challenge that you're facing it was incredibly effective the challenges. It's not the easiest thing to learn and with EFT tapping where really breaking it down. We're using the nine points that we have found to help and By memorizing these nine points once you know how to do it. It's something that you do again and again regardless of what problem you're facing this is such an interesting thing because I know the first time I heard about it. I was like wait a minute how I'm just GonNa tap on myself in. It's all better and actually I saw Jack Canfield speak about it and you know as you start learning more about it you do start understanding how it works so can you kind of tell us just why it is so effective. Yeah absolutely so it starts with the brain. When we have a type of anxiety we have the the amid della fires op this alarm system and suddenly we have this over production of Cortisol and we have this rush of adrenaline which is incredibly helpful? Well if we're in a hike and suddenly we're on a hike and suddenly we see a snake right WH- when we're in physical danger. We want to have the stress response. The stress response isn't bad across the board. But what happens is now. You're not scared about a physical response. You're scared about speaking in public. You're scared about finally finishing your resume and taking that step in your life and so here we are having these fears in our lives. Is this anxiety and our life isn't in danger. But we're literally having the physical experience as if we were having met overproduction of Cortisol which can lead to cravings things and we're having this extra anxiety so what we're doing here is. We're getting really clear on the thought that's creating that physical anxiety and as you tap on these points it sends a calming signal to your brain letting your brain no. Hey you're safe. It helps ground you and all of a sudden you get to the point where you can think about speaking on stage and your hands aren't trembling anymore. A big part component about tapping is the ability to really be open and honest with how you feel. This is about saying how we feel really giving it a voice as we stimulate these points honoring it and as we relax the body. It's easier to let it go and to move to something more empowering and does it take a long time for the tapping to take effect act in an individual situation. Yeah not at all this is. What's really incredible about it? Is that in the moment. You can just start to do some tapping and and find some relief. We have really exciting as we have. This APP called the tapping solution APP. Where it's free and you get these free tapping meditations? The really great thing about this as well for us is that you can mark your before and after and so all of a sudden. We're able to see just the the AH breakthroughs that people are having so we've had at this point over one hundred and seventy thousand people tap on anxiety on the releasing anxiety tapping happing meditation and in ten minutes. Anxiety goes down by half. That's amazing were written than Xanax. Kicks in it is really is. Is it really quick. And it's all about feeling good and feeling grounded and you know in just a few minutes of tapping you can get there. You obviously can do deeper work with tapping you can really focus on specific areas of your life. I wrote a book about weight loss body confidence where I dive deeper around our cravings and our beliefs about food and and you can take that approach with tapping addressing things specifically but if we just need something because we are anxious. This is something that you can do right away to feel better and as you do it more if you do it regularly do start diminishing the anxiety overall in your life. Oh absolutely yes I I find that the more that you do it be quicker. The anxiety goes down but the difference is you're really making big changes because now what you're doing is before for. You had a thought that was creating anxiety you tap on that thought so you get to the point where you can think that thought and you don't have that physical response after doing tapping for a while you're were training your body. Your body knows. Oh we'll if I thought I might mess up when I get on stage or whatever that stresses you have already trained your body every time you tap your training your body that you are safe. It's safe to relax and so with time. You don't have to tap as often because you've already made that association that that you don't have to fear those thoughts it doesn't mean we don't have them. I think a big mistake people make around wanting to be happy that they always need to have happy thoughts and if they ever thinking something disempowering than it means they're doing something wrong or they're taking a step backwards. We put too much weight on this when we give ourselves permission to feel and to have those thoughts without judgment and know how to just eat ourselves comfort ourselves to self soothe with capping. When we have that thought again it it doesn't feel as intense we don't judge it and make it bigger than it

Is CBD Safe? The FDA Can't Say

"NPR. Health correspondent. Allison Aubrey. Hey Alison Hey Mattie so today we're talking about a topic that a lot of people have questions about. CBD Yes can dial or CD as you say. It is compound found in the cannabis Hannah-beth plant so you find it in marijuana and hemp and it has exploded in popularity. It is touted as an elixir that can do everything from relieving Zaidi to to help. Ease your aches and pains. You've heard about it right now. Oh yeah so. There are a lot of companies from big operations to mom and pop shops selling it. I can tell you having been in truck stops in rural Pennsylvania and on the freeway and Silicon Valley. No matter where you are in the country right now you are likely seeing ads for CBD. But here's the thing last week. The Food and Drug Administration came out with some fairly strong warnings. Yes basically they came out and they issued warning letters to fifteen companies selling CD products. And they're basically saying you are violating FDA policy they say you are not allowed to market CBD products as a treatment for any condition or disease. You cannot sell it is a dietary supplement and you may not put it in any foods that are fed to people or animals now just because the FDA has says this is not allowed does not mean that you'll stop seeing products marketed. This way and we'll get to that in a little bit the same day that they weren't all those companies the FDA also updated their consumer guidance for CD there what you need to know about CBD page citing some pretty serious safety concerns. It's a lot of warnings. So today on the show we're going to break down with the FDA DA says about CBD and how some of those warnings might be more valid than others so alison give me the CBD one o one sir can abba dial or CD for short is a component of cannabis. That means it. It is extracted from the plant. Pulled out the plant. It does not contain the psychoactive component. THC that we all know about that makes you high but it still Ella works on your brain in ways that scientists don't completely understand yet. I have reported on studies that are currently evaluating. CBD's potential role in curbing anxiety. There are federal grants. I should say to evaluate whether CBD could be used as an alternative to opioids. But so far there's only one. FDA APPROVED CBD drug on the market. It's approved to treat very specific childhood epilepsy disorders. So we have this weird situation on one. Hand everybody's using CD. There's all this research going on and then the FDA is saying we can't conclude that CD is safe. Yes you're right. It seems paradoxical ago. So let's step back a moment to give some context make sense of this basically CB has been and what I would call regulatory limbo. I mean big time for a longtime. The production of hemp was restricted. It was considered a controlled. Substance Hemp and marijuana are varieties of the same plants cannabis then lashed year under pressure. From from Congress and hemp farmers these restrictions were lifted as part of the two thousand eighteen farm bill and Ben Distri said Alleluia. This is great but the FDA quickly weekly stepped in and said hey wait a second here we have regulatory authority over CBD. And there's a lot we still don't know. Remember this compound kind of came out of nowhere. I mean right have ah you heard of CBD three years ago not really. I mean this year. I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of the more popular items and Christmas stockings around the country. So is it fair to say the FDA might have been a little bit caught off guard by this. Yes this boom of. That's right and it's well within their purview. To regulate it when it's used in foods or as drug but they say they just don't have a lot of data to go on yet right now. The agency is in the midst of writing some specific rules to regulate but before they do. They WANNA know that it's safe. We should also point out that even though the FDA just said we can't say CD's safe the World Health Organization another giant public health three-nation put out a report last year saying CBD is generally well tolerated and has a good safety profile. That's right from what they've seen so far the. Who is saying there can be some adverse effects from drug interactions. But there's no evidence of any public health related problem associated with that. That is what they say. They point to the fact that several countries have modified their regulations to allow the use of CBD as a medicinal product. But again the FDA playing it safe saying it needs more data now one area where they say they need more is on the potential for liver damage from using CD. And you've been looking into that right. Yeah so that is actually one of the things. The FDA warns people about in what you need to know page. I looked into it a bit and some of the state came from when the FDA DA was reviewing the epilepsy medication that we've talked about Basically they found that taking. CBD has the potential for damaging the liver and that was very dose dependent meeting most of the troubling results happened at higher doses And that makes sense right. There's a good bit of data out there. Supporting this and a lot of the serious damage was seen when people were taking other other drugs that also impacted the liver and that brings us to another warning which is potential drug interactions does CBD increase or decrease crease the effects of other medications. You might be taking. Does it. Increase side effects basically the FDA saying they are concerned about the potential safety of taking other medications at the same time. You're taking CD. When you're not being monitored by a healthcare professional and the most interesting warning they put out to me at least was there mention of this potential for male reproductive toxics? Okay Yeah So. The FDA warns that CD led to decreased testicular size mess with the growth of sperm and Development Minton and decreased circulating testosterone. But the thing is alison. All of this data came from animal studies including delightful study on Sea Urchin Sea Urchin Yup. Yep Okay and in one of those studies. They weren't even testing on actual animals just cells isolated from animals okay and even the FDA acknowledges that stuff that happens in animals almost does not necessarily happen in humans right and I asked the FDA for more information about this and they sent me about twelve studies. And I looked at a good bit of them and some of them used I really high doses of how high like ten times the maximum recommended dose for the FDA approved drug that. We've already been talking low which is already a hider the right and to be fair doses researchers using animals are sometimes more than they use in humans but I saw some real variability in the studies. Some found differences and in sperm. And how they're moving around how much there is. But another didn't and it seems to depend maybe on the type of animals that were studied so a lot of inconsistencies. Here a little bit. Yeah and in one of the studies they did show that. CBD Treatment Lead to a decrease in testosterone but it was still within the normal physiological range. So you think these studies might be a little week more like the conclusions at the. FDA is drawing from this group of Studies. There weren't that many of them and I find it odd that the FDA put out this kind of scary fertility warning warning based solely on animals. So those are the specific warnings. The FDA has mentioned here but they also say that they have some concerns about a special populations like the elderly children pregnant women and also a very special population are pets dogs cats. You see all kind of marketing around doggy. CBD for your anxious pup but the FDA says that they can't say whether this is safer effective they also I want to look into the cumulative effects. Meaning what happens if you're using multiple CD products at one time. This was my favorite government warning. Okay let's see Jason Literally said what happens if you eat food with few skin cream and take other CD products on the same day. I am sure there are people out there doing I meant. I know where where they're going with it but it read to me like what could happen if you put it in your eyes and your ears in your mouth and you rub it on your but in the same day what could happen. Alison we we know. But okay real talk. Allison you have been reporting on the FDA and FDA related things for years. What are your feelings about all this you no I think the FDA is in a tough spot here? I mean these are fair warnings. If you consider what they know and don't know the agencies just trying to communicate that the CBD products haven't all been evaluated for safety or efficacy meaning whether they work or not and you know the CD you buy online or over the counter sir depending on who made it might not have the amount of CBD in it it says on the bottle it might not actually contain CBD. I mean given given the current state of regulation. You just can't be sure or you know there could be other stuff in there that you don't want right well. This is the perennial problem with supplements. Right I mean the FDA has this dividing line between how it regulates prescription drugs and how it regulates supplements when something's prescription drug. There's a rigorous amount of testing that it goes into it right when something is regulated as a supplement. It's kind of a wait and watch situation if something goes wrong. The FDA certainly has the power to take it off the market market. But you often don't know what's in the products or if there might be contaminants in there so there was always a buyer. Beware message when you're talking about things that are are you buying off the shelf like dietary supplements and so what do you think about from the safety perspective. You know I really do think it's interesting. With the world. Health Organization Organization has said. I mean they're basically saying from what we've seen so far. The safety profile looks to us. Pretty good I think one possible resolution solution to all of this as the FDA ways exactly how to regulate CD. I mean. Let's face it. CBS Not going away. But I think there could be some tiered system. That's certainly something you hear. The industry talking about there could be high dose products which would be restricted and require a prescription then. Low dose products like supplements Lancer Foods. which would be more widely available makes sense so the PR person that I talked to you said the FDA will have more to say about CBD in the coming weeks so we will be looking forward to another CD UPDATE

I don't wanna say never get that satisfaction because I'm sorry for the victims, but he got what he doesn't remember when to end the said that she was worried she would say something..
