    Podcast Summary

    • Understanding Social AnxietySocial anxiety is a common experience, caused by various factors, and treatable through practicing social skills, challenging negative thoughts, seeking support, and being kind to oneself.

      Social anxiety is a common experience characterized by discomfort and fear in social situations, regardless of the size of the group. Social anxiety can affect anyone, even those who are comfortable speaking in front of large crowds. The causes of social anxiety are complex and can include factors such as lack of practice in social situations, fear of judgment, and the impact of the pandemic on our social lives. It's important to remember that social anxiety is a treatable condition, and there are many strategies and techniques that can help manage it. These can include practicing social skills, challenging negative thoughts, and seeking support from trusted friends, family, or mental health professionals. It's also essential to be kind to yourself and recognize that social anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. Remember, it's okay to feel uncomfortable sometimes, and it's okay to ask for help when you need it.

    • Understanding Social Anxiety: A Common Condition with Strategies for ManagementSocial anxiety is a common feeling of nervousness in social situations, but for some, it can be chronic and debilitating. Manage symptoms with strategies, but if persistent, seek professional help.

      Social anxiety is a common feeling of nervousness or unease in social situations, but for some people, it can be a chronic and debilitating condition that requires professional help. Social anxiety can manifest as a fear of being judged, making mistakes, or being the center of attention, and it can lead to avoidance of social situations or significant distress when participating. Symptoms can include racing heart, sweaty palms, shaky voice, or a blank mind. Social anxiety is a normal response to challenging social situations for many people, but for those with social anxiety disorder, it can significantly disrupt daily life and personal relationships. Understanding social anxiety and having strategies to manage it can be helpful for everyone, but if you're dealing with a chronic and persistent case, it's important to seek the help of a mental health professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

    • Causes of Social Anxiety: Biological, Genetic, Learned, and Cultural FactorsSocial anxiety, caused by a mix of internal and external factors, triggers the fight or flight response, leading to intense fear and potential interference with daily activities.

      Social anxiety is a complex condition caused by a combination of internal and external factors. Biological factors such as an overactive amygdala and imbalances in neurotransmitters like serotonin can contribute. Genetics, learned behavior from upbringing, traumatic social experiences, and cultural factors are also potential causes. Social anxiety is more severe than shyness, causing intense fear and potentially interfering with daily activities. When someone experiences social anxiety, their brain and body trigger the fight or flight response, preparing them to either face the threat, run away, freeze, or fawn. Despite the fear of being judged, most people are too preoccupied with their own concerns to notice. However, when anxiety takes over, logic and reason can be lost, leading to a vicious cycle of fear. Understanding the complex causes of social anxiety can help in seeking effective treatments and coping strategies.

    • Understanding Social Anxiety Disorder: Symptoms and DiagnosisSocial anxiety disorder causes physical and emotional symptoms, impacts daily life, requires formal diagnosis, and offers various treatment options including deep breathing, therapy, and medication.

      Social anxiety disorder involves a range of physical and emotional symptoms, including increased heart rate, rapid breathing, and fear or avoidance of social situations. These responses, while helpful in dangerous situations, can be detrimental in everyday life if left unmanaged. Persistent anxiety can lead to significant distress and impairment in various areas of functioning. A formal diagnosis, which involves a detailed interview, is necessary to differentiate social anxiety disorder from other mental health conditions. Treatment options include cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, relaxation techniques, and medication. Deep breathing is a practical tool for managing social anxiety in daily life. It's important to remember that medication is not a magic cure-all and should be part of a multifaceted approach to managing social anxiety.

    • Practicing mindfulness techniques for anxiety reliefDeep breathing, grounding exercises, and daily affirmations can help soothe your nervous system and provide relief from anxiety. Inhale and exhale for specific counts, focus on sensory experiences, and repeat positive affirmations for improved self-understanding and a sense of security.

      Practicing mindfulness techniques, such as deep breathing and grounding exercises, can help soothe your nervous system and bring you out of a state of anxiety. Deep breathing involves inhaling and exhaling for specific counts, while grounding yourself can be done using techniques like the 54321 method, which involves focusing on sensory experiences in the present. Additionally, using daily affirmations can help improve self-understanding and provide a sense of security and safety. These practices can be especially helpful in moments of social anxiety or when dealing with past or future worries. Remember to always practice these techniques in a safe environment and not while driving or walking.

    • Self-compassion, challenging negative thoughts, preparation, practice, setting small goals, asking for support, and avoiding substancesAccept self-compassion, challenge negative thoughts, prepare and practice, set small goals, ask for support, and avoid substances to manage social anxiety

      Managing social anxiety involves self-compassion, challenging negative thoughts, preparation and practice, setting small goals, asking for support, and avoiding substances. By accepting and being compassionate towards ourselves, we can reduce the judgment and pretense that often fuel anxiety. Challenging negative thoughts helps us let go of unhelpful thinking patterns, while preparation and practice can make unfamiliar situations feel less daunting. Setting small goals and asking for support can help us gradually build confidence, while avoiding substances can keep us clear-headed and in control. Remember, nobody can read minds, so if we need something, we need to ask for it.

    • Managing Social Anxiety: A Personalized PlanCreate a personalized plan for managing social anxiety, including distractions, self-education, journaling, rewarding small victories, and seeking support. Prioritize your well-being and take action to reduce anxiety.

      Social anxiety, if left unaddressed, can negatively impact mental health and overall well-being. To manage social anxiety, consider creating a personalized plan that includes distractions for anxious situations, self-education, journaling, rewarding small victories, and seeking support. Remember, "nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action." (Walter Anderson) Don't let social anxiety hold you back. Take control and make choices that prioritize your well-being. Next week, we'll dive into emotional regulation and finding a balance between emotional reactions and rational responses. Stay tuned!

    104 Joanna Townsend: Self-Compassion Does NOT Mean Resignation. So What Does It Mean and How Do We Do It?

    Joanna Townsend is a licensed psychotherapist based in Bozeman, Montana and the owner of Root & Rise, a modern and inclusive mental wellness practice for millennials. Joanna brings her true self and inner nerd to the therapy space. She specializes in the areas of anxiety, perfectionism, self-worth, life transitions, burn out, eating disorder recovery, and is a big advocate of feeling all the feels, authenticity, self-compassion, and letting go of shame. We discuss self-compassion and self-acceptance - what they mean, what they don’t mean, and how to start and elevate our self-compassion practices. We talk about perfectionism and people-pleasing and how both can relate to a lack of self-compassion. Joanna talks about enoughness for women, for millennials, for content creators, and so much more.

    “Comparison is natural and normal, it’s in our wiring, but our relationship to it can either create wounds to our self-worth or be a source of inspiration and connection.” - Joanna Townsend

    142. Journal Your Way to Clarity: Part 1 - Career (Re-post)

    142. Journal Your Way to Clarity: Part 1 - Career (Re-post)

    Hello! Well, a lot has happened since we last connected. Let me bring you up to date.

    In January of this year, I decided to devote a series of podcast episodes to the seven life themes found in The Treasured Journal:  career, relationships, money, love, sex, family, and purpose. I recorded and published episodes on three of the seven themes and invited listeners to journal along with me. 

    The ideas and questions discussed in each podcast supplied listeners with guided exercises that helped them go deeper and explore the themes further. The “Journal Your Way to Clarity” series was going well, and then… I found out I was pregnant!

    Somehow, the excitement of the pregnancy, the need to make room for a fourth human in our house, and all the other planning activities commandeered my brain. So now, in October, after giving birth to our sweet baby boy and taking time off to focus on my family, I am ready to re-engage with the podcast and the “Journal Your Way to Clarity” series.

    I am so excited to be back and can’t wait to get in front of the microphone again! To level set, I’m going to start by replaying the episodes that were published previously and then I’ll be back with fresh content for the remaining themes. 

    In Part 1 of the series, I focus on career. People tend to have a lot of unconscious bias, complicated feelings, and self-identity wrapped up in their careers. So it’s worth examining through journaling how we perceive its value and its effect on us.

    Journaling is one of the most powerful tools we have for gaining clarity and understanding. Whether you’re experienced at journaling or brand new to it, I encourage you to take advantage of these guided exercises to explore the seven themes in your life.  

    You can get a copy of THE TREASURED JOURNAL here: https://danielleireland.com/journal

    It’s not essential that you use The Treasured Journal for these exercises—a plain pad of paper and pen will do. But, along with this series of podcasts, the questions, prompts, and sentence stems in the journal will help you move past the blank page and gain the type of clarity that comes from meaningful self-reflection.

    Thank you for listening to the Don’t Cut Your Own Bangs podcast. This episode originally aired as #115 on January 23, 2023.

    Celebrate Your Goodness | Hayley Ep 4

    One of the challenges when we’ve experienced trauma is that we learn to focus on what is wrong about ourselves and the world around us. As a result, we not only ignore only our inherent sense of goodness, but also our achievements and accomplishments in life. By shifting our focus to celebrate and embody the best of ourselves, we are learning to invite more of this into our lives.
