In these times of uncertain times, we are dealing with a lot of unknowns. This can create a feeling of unease that can cause us to become stressed, unfocused, and overwhelmed.

What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview on
What You Can Do When Feeling Lonely or Depressed
:

 1. Don’t Suppress It. Some people have the notion that since emotions are irrational by nature, they should suppress it. This is not necessarily the best way to deal with heavy emotions. Remember, humans are by nature emotional beings. It’s okay to be sad, to feel frustrated, to grieve, or be disappointed. It is perfectly normal. Avoiding or bottling up those feelings does not allow us to move on from them. Yes, some emotions can be uncomfortable, even painful, but just remember emotions come and go and don’t last forever.

5 Steps to Break Free From Stress and Anxiety Naturally (Without Quitting Your Job)

Available for Interviews: Dr. Alice Fong

Alice Fong, ND, is an integrative naturopathic doctor specializing in stress, integrative medicine, diet & weight loss, and is a business growth consultant for holistic healthcare providers.

What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview on
Breaking Free From Stress and Anxiety Naturally:

When your body or mind is stressed, your “sympathetic nervous system” is activated. It is better known as the “fight or flight response.” What happens to our bodies when we’re in this “stress” mode is our heart races, pupils dilate, we sweat, and our blood pressure and cortisol rises. It’s an important system to have to be able to exercise or handle dangerous situations. However, the problem is, if we are ALWAYS in this “stress mode,” it overworks our adrenal glands, which is responsible for the output of the hormone cortisol in our bodies. Eventually the adrenal glands will be depleted over time, which can lead to the brain fog, fatigue, sleep disturbances, weight gain, and it makes us more susceptible to getting sick.

What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview on
Connecting With Others While Keeping a Distance:

Let’s stop calling it social distancing.  Why? Because it sounds so depressing and isolating, like every person is in it for themselves in solitude and we’re not allowed to socialize. I think the more appropriate terms should be “physical distancing,” or “temporarily homebound.” Just because we need to stay physically away from each other, doesn’t mean we can’t socialize through all the MANY forms of technology available to us.

Worry is not fear. It is anticipatory fear. It is malignant advance planning

4 Steps to Dealing With Panic Attacks

Available for Interviews: Colleen Cira, PsyD

Dr. Colleen Cira is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in Trauma and anxiety and has worked with hundreds of people who have struggled with panic attacks.

A panic attack occurs when your sympathetic nervous system responds as though you are in danger. A number of reactions can occur: one may feel hot (or alternatively, cold), dizzy, lightheaded, short of breath, rapid heart rate, etc. It can be really scary, especially if you don’t know what’s going on or feel powerless over the feelings. Here are a few things you can do to stop a panic attack in its tracks:

 1) Understand what you are experiencing. Recognize it for what it is: simply a panic attack.  You are not in danger. You will not pass out (research is clear about this even though it might feel otherwise).  You are not ill. It’s just your perfectly healthy, normal nervous system doing what it does best. Once you feel clear that this is actually a panic attack (as opposed to something else you need to worry about), you can just deal with what’s happening.
