Ep 4. Anxiety Society the Silent Trickster
The Five Steps of AWARE By David Carbonell, Ph.D. is a Chicago psychologist who specializes in the treatment of fears and phobias. He maintains a popular self help web site at www.anxietycoach.com, where this material, and much more, appears. He is the author of Panic Attacks Workbook, The Worry Trick, and Fear of Flying Workbook. The five steps to overcoming panic attacks are: Acknowledge & Accept Wait & Watch (and maybe, Work) Actions (to make myself more comfortable) Repeat End Let's take a look at what each step entails. Acknowledge & Accept All progress starts here. This is the most important single step to overcoming panic attacks. Acknowledge Here I acknowledge the present reality, that I'm afraid and starting to panic. I won't try to ignore it, or pretend it's not there. I won't struggle to distract myself, tell myself to "stop thinking about it!", or snap any rubber bands on my wrist. I'm acknowledging simply that I am afraid, not that I am in danger. The thought that I am in danger is just another symptom of panic, not an important or useful thought. Accept Here I accept the fact that I'm afraid at this moment. I don't fight the feeling; ask God to take it away; blame myself, or anybody else. I accept, as best I can, that I'm afraid in the same way I would accept a headache. I don't like headaches, but I don't bang my head against the wall in an effort to get rid of them, because that makes them worse. Overcoming panic attacks begins with working with, not against, my panic and anxiety symptoms. How Can I Accept a Panic Attack? What makes a panic attack acceptable (not desirable, but acceptable) is that, while it feels awful and fills me with dread, it isn't dangerous. It won't kill me or make me crazy. Someone pointing a gun at me, that's not acceptable. I might get hurt or killed. If someone points a gun at me, I have to do whatever I can to change that: run, hide, fight, yell, bribe, or beg, because the consequence of being shot is so terrible that I must try to avoid it.

Ep.3 Happiness - The Psychology of joy and self help me up with it.
Tips by Armando: Make believe there is no other moment. Daydream and wonder until you start to wonder what if… What if's are dangerous because your emotional state does not know the difference between a facetious thought and a true event. Exercise keeps you in the moment. Leave yourself convenient surprises. Make a game out of life, what you least want to do scores the most points Hang around smilers, smile for muscle memory Memorable quotes: Anger is the ultimate destroyer of your own peace of mind. The Dalai Lama
