Greatist - May 2018

Psychologist Kevin Gilliland, Psy.D., says that when you feel those negative thoughts coming on, giving yourself a gentle but forceful "Stop!" can be powerful. You can say it aloud or in your head, depending on the circumstances—but this can be a great way to nip those self-defeating thoughts in the bud. Recognize that in hindsight, you have gotten through this all before, and the worry didn't do any good. And the situation is rarely as bad as you build it up to be in your head.

“Anxiety  is  fueled  by  irrational,  worst  case  scenario  thoughts,  and  confined  spaces  are  opportunities  for  anxious  thoughts,”   “Our  anxious  thoughts  can  be  so  powerful  that  they  even  activate  our  physical  systems.  That  means  our  breathing  becomes  shallow,  our  chest  gets  tight,  our  palms  get  sweaty,  we  feel  nauseated  and  maybe  even  lightheaded.” “Anxiety often leads us to breathe shallowly and rapidly.” “Slow, big breaths can help us relax the body, and the mind usually follows.”

The  feature  entitled,  “Men’s  Health,”  discussed  the  removal  of  gender  roles  in  the  modern  relationship.    Dr.  Gilliland  stated,  “The  changing  stereotypical  male  and  female  roles  make  it  easier  for  men  to be  more  involved  in  wedding  planning.    This  is  fantastic.  But  there  are  still  broad  social  and  cultural  influences  which  affect  the  sexes." - May 2018

It’s easy to romanticize what you once had if you’re facing challenges with your current partner, and by scrolling your ex's social pages, you might forget that every relationship endures normal ups and downs. “Relationships are nonstop problem solving,” Gilliland tells Health. “We tend to forget that and idealize other relationships, whether it’s our past ones or comparing ourselves to other couples online, and it’s one of the worst things we can do.”

If  you’re  depressed,  you  spend  a  lot  of  time  in  your  head.  And  even  if  you’re  not  clinically  diagnosed,  it’s  normal  for  every  person  to  go  through  ebbs  and  flows  of  satisfaction,  depending  on  what’s  happening  at  their  job,  in  their  relationship  or  their  friendships.  But  instead  of  dwelling  on  everything  that  is  wrong  or  could  be  wrong,  psychologist  Dr.  Kevin  Gilliland explains  that  traveling  makes  us  get  out  of  our  head,  our  routine  and  our  downward  spiral.  By  providing  a  new  perspective  on  how  life  could  be  in  other  parts  of  the  world,  the  planet—and  your  problems—seem  smaller.
