"Master Your Mindset & Prevent Anxiety: Self-monitoring strategies for peace of mind"
Presented by Kevin Gilliland, Psy.D.
Stress. Worry. Panic. Overwhelm. We talk about these things all the time, but we don’t always call them what they really are: anxiety. Anxiety and anxiety-related illnesses are the single biggest problem we struggle with as Americans. We are living in an age of information overload – there is no greater time than now to self-monitor.
In Master Your Mindset & Prevent Anxiety, we will talk about the mechanics of anxiety and the neurobiology and neuroanatomy of our minds. Simply put, we will learn the nuts and bolts of our brains. Presented at a very high level, the goal is for a greater understanding of what our minds are doing, as well as what they do remarkably well and without effort. Then we will spend the majority of our time discussing what happens when they don’t function like they are designed to or when we misuse them. There is actually a large set of data/research and personal experience that have given us a vast range of methods to effectively thwart worry and stress. Here’s where you are important: I don’t know you and the world doesn’t care about you (nothing personal), so you have to take what you know about yourself and try some of the things that have worked for others.
Ultimately, our minds are pattern-making machines. How are you using yours?
