    Let's Talk About: Social Anxiety and ways to overcome it

    in Self Help

    Hosted by Lisa Erhard


    Not the easiest topic but did you know that social anxiety is more common than you might think.


     Do you find yourself avoiding certain social situations out of fear of being judged?  Or maybe you don't even know why you have anxiety, but you will go out of your way to avoid talking to people in certain situations.  You may be suffering from social anxiety.


    You want to meet people, make friends, and share yourself with the world, but social interactions can be nerve wracking for all of us. People with social anxiety constantly doubt their social adequacy, and worry about what might happen if people don’t like them or if they say or do the wrong thing. Although therapy can be very useful for people who suffer from social anxiety disorder, there a number of techniques you can try to cure your anxiety without the need for professional help.

    Anxiety and Pain and Influences on Breathing

    in Health

    By the age of 70, the average adult will have taken 600 million breaths, and for most individuals, breathing is taken for granted. But acute or chronic pain, anxiety, and even depression, can cause a disruption in the normal physiological process. When psychological factors dominate over physiological processes, breathing rate may increase (hyperventilation), and a disordered pattern of breathing can become the norm. When altered breathing patterns become habit they can contribute to health problems, including anxiety, fatigue, and chronic pain, setting up a vicious cycle of health concerns.


    Christopher Gilbert, PhD, is a clinical psychologist currently associated with the Kaiser Permanente Chronic Pain Management Program, located in San Francisco, California. Dr. Gilbert has co-authored the book: Recognizing and Treating Breathing Disorders and published articles related to hyperventilation, anxiety and panic. He will discuss techniques which may be of benefit to patients, including: self-regulation of breathing and breathing re-training, and the use of bio-feedback.


    Listen to the program live on your computer or tablet, or by phone, call: (347) 838-9137. If you have a question for the guest, call in on the toll free number (888) 787-5265 and press 1 on your phone keypad.
