Zoom anxiety often begins well before the actual interaction. If a Zoom meeting with your boss is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Friday, you may start to experience symptoms on Wednesday. Most commonly we worry and feel nervous in this phase. “I’m going to say something stupid.” Or, “My boss will think I’m so awkward.” Or, “Pornography of a questionable fetish is going to pop up onto my screen due to some cruel trojan horse and my boss will hear it.” … [Read more...] about 3 Tips to Manage Zoom Anxiety

Origin Stories That’s why three recent studies are so heartening. The first is from Haydeh Payami and colleagues at the University of Alabama, who found a gut-microbial signature that is associated with Parkinson’s. They were guided in their research by a well-known connection between Parkinson’s and the gut, including constipation, inflammation, and “leaky gut." The latter is a contentious term, because the gut is leaky by design: That’s how nutrients are absorbed. But taken to extremes, that leakiness may allow bacteria and toxins to enter the bloodstream, where they are dutifully pumped by the heart to every organ in the body. The immune system destroys these wayward microbes and then stands down.

I explain what “thinking thoughts that serve you” means and provide tactics for achieving that high-bar goal, including the simple three-step tactic of hearing what you’re thinking, disputing those thoughts that aren’t serving you (“No, thought, you are not serving me!”), and substituting a more affirmative or useful thought for the disputed thought. A ceremonial breathing-and-thinking approach.

Looking deeper into this phenomenon, one may also conjecture—in the psychodynamic tradition--that those who place themselves repeatedly, and freely, in a place of pain and self-punishment are involved in an elaborate dance of wish fulfillment—maneuvering (unconsciously) to get what they feel they deserve. In addition, persistent rituals that appear futile at the level of content may often serve a latent purpose at the level of process. When my spouse and I argue vehemently about politics, we are unlikely to change each other’s minds. But our noisy, heated arguments may implicitly denote passion, which we may value in each other. … [Read more...] about Futile Persistence: Why Do We Keep Our Bad Habits?
