How A Mindset Shift Helped With My Anxiety. 2020 was not a kind year for those of us who struggle with anxiety.

How A Mindset Shift Helped With My Anxiety

The uncertainty that continues to fly around has our nervous system all in a mess. However, changing how my brain learns and thinks when confronted with challenging situations has certainly helped me. Various techniques from mindfulness, dialectical-behavioural therapy (DBT) and cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) have given me the know-how I now want to share with others.

Here’s how a mindset shift helped me tame my anxiety — maybe these tips can help you, too. Move over Dr Google - Australian’s Want More Credible Health Information! A key finding from a recent General Wellness Survey (GWS)* conducted by The Art of Healing during 2020 found that Australian’s are wanting more credible health information.

Move over Dr Google - Australian’s Want More Credible Health Information!

Further, and perhaps driven by the unexpected and unprecedented global pandemic, more than half of the survey respondents said their preference was for scientifically informed information (55%) or information directly from medical practitioners and experts (51%). A far smaller number (14%) said they would turn to ‘Dr Google’. Whilst it is encouraging to see that a majority of survey respondents would not rely on content taken randomly from the internet, it can sometimes be very difficult to ascertain what is true and what is not. Certainly, more than 50% of people said it was very important for them to know where content was coming from. Memory May Be Preserved in Condition With Brain Changes Similar to Alzheimer’s Disease. Primary progressive aphasia is a rare neurodegenerative condition characterised by prominent language problems that worsen over time.

Memory May Be Preserved in Condition With Brain Changes Similar to Alzheimer’s Disease

About 40% of people with the condition have underlying Alzheimer’s disease. But a new study has found that people with the condition may not develop the memory problems associated with Alzheimer’s disease. 10 Things You Can Do To Help Ease Inflammation Right Now. While inflammation isn’t inherently bad – in fact, it’s an important process that helps us fight off viruses and other bacteria – it becomes a problem when it doesn’t subside once the threat is gone.

10 Things You Can Do To Help Ease Inflammation Right Now

When inflammation is out of control, it creates a cascade of pro-inflammatory cytokines and molecules, including tumour necrosis factor (TNF-a), Interleukin-1beta (IL-1b), Interleukin-6 (IL-6), and nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB) that continue to build up and linger in our body. Unfortunately, inflammatory triggers are abundant in our society (think: the foods we eat, the toxins in our air, and even the stress we feel), so it’s important to build some inflammation-fighting activities into your daily life. How to More Easily Reach Your Long-Term Goals. If you’ve made some New Year’s resolutions, or set some annual goals for yourself, you might be wondering: Will I succeed this year?

How to More Easily Reach Your Long-Term Goals

The real test will come when you’re stressed, or tired, or just plain unmotivated. Here’s the plain truth: If your annual goals or New Year’s resolutions feel like tasks, or if they feel overwhelming, or if they feel even a little difficult, you likely won’t do them over the long run. If they are something you feel like you “should” do, but that you don’t actually want to do … eventually you won’t do them at all.

A Psychiatrist's Tips To Proactively Care For Your Mental Health This Holiday Season

Given all the build-up around the holidays, it’s not uncommon for people to sometimes get the ‘holiday blues.’ Feeling down, stressed, or simply burnt out is normal. As we head into the holiday season – especially during the pandemic when many of our normal coping strategies may be put to the test – it is essential to be mindful of our mental health. Go Well Radio DR MICHAEL MOSLEY Interview. In Shaky Times, Focus On Past Successes … The more chaotic things get, the harder it is for people with clinical anxiety and/or depression to make sound decisions and to learn from their mistakes.

In Shaky Times, Focus On Past Successes …

On a positive note, the judgement of overly anxious and depressed people can improve if they focus on what they get right, instead of what they get wrong, suggests a new UC Berkeley study. The findings, published in the journal eLife, are particularly salient in the face of a COVID-19 surge that demands tactical and agile thinking to avoid illness and even death. UC Berkeley researchers tested the probabilistic decision-making skills of more than 300 adults, including people with major depressive disorder and generalised anxiety disorder. Investing In A Frontline Response To Elder Abuse. Researchers are working with a team of 50 social workers across south east Queensland to create a uniform, national approach to identifying abuse in elderly people who present to hospitals. Latest national figures say up to 14 per cent of Australians over the age of 55 experience some form of physical, financial or emotional abuse at the hands of their carers or family members.

Project leader and veteran social worker Professor Jill Wilson OA said despite the growing need, there was no national framework for dealing with the various forms of abuse. “Our research project will be focussed on understanding why someone commits elder abuse and how social workers can better intervene to break the cycle,” Professor Wilson said. “Apart from the issues of human rights and protection, increasing abuse rates worry the government because abused older people often lose their asset base and so they cannot pay for care. “Everybody in society should have an interest in protecting older people.

Supporting your immune system is likely top of mind these days. While there are a number of ways to keep your body healthy, as an integrative doctor, I know the gut is not only the foundation upon which to build your health.

It is also the gateway to your immunity. Disturbances in the delicate balance of the gut ecosystem, such as dysbiosis (an imbalance in bad bacteria versus good), can create challenges for the immune system. That’s why I believe the key to strengthening our immune system is to strengthen the gut lining and improve the health of the gut microbiome. Body Scan Meditation. Research suggests that people who practise the body scan for longer reap more benefits.

It can feel like an impossibility to resist the diet and weight loss pressure that has become synonymous with the start of a new year. And yet, reclaiming your health and finding peace with food often happens in the absence of counting calories, or manipulating body shape and size. Diet culture takes a reductionist view by quantifying food as a series of numbers, which effectively robs us of the natural pleasure inherent in the eating experience.

This is the year to resist setting goals for calorie counting and instead build a strong foundation for long-lasting health and wellbeing.
