Psychological Fitness: Managing Our Minds with Dr. Gregory S. Brown MD & Dr. Joan Rosenberg Ph.D.
Original Air Date Wednesday, September 28, 2022
Self-care has become a diluted term thrown about by many who only intend to sell beauty care products. But, true self-care is so much more than physical relaxation.
Complete self-care encompasses mental and emotional health and psychological fitness. With over 40 million Americans struggling from some level of anxiety or depression, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen questions the experts about how we can regain balance and manage our minds. Integrative Psychiatrist Dr. Gregory S. Brown shares the Five Pillars of Self-Care from his book, The Self-Healing Mind: An Essential Five-Step Practice for Overcoming Anxiety and Depression, and Revitalizing Your Life. And, Dr. Joan Rosenberg describes the Rosenberg Reset method that guides people through their feelings and offers relief for those in the grips of anxiety.
