Self Help

In this section, we will offer suggestions that you can use to help improve your feeling of psychological and emotional well-being.  Various practices, techniques and exercises will be introduced that may help you reduce stress and anxiety; learn more about yourself; strengthen your faith, optimism, and coping skills, or perhaps just provide an enjoyable diversion. 

Dr. Tigay's Top Self Help Ideas:

1.  Education: Learn more about yourself and the world around you and perhaps you will discover what is holding you back from achieving your full potential.

2.  Relaxation:  Techniques such as meditation and yoga have been shown to reduce symptoms of anxiety, anger and depression.

3.  Exercise:  Exercise has been shown to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia.

4.  Values Development:   Strengthening your philosophical  foundation and your spiritual and religious awareness can help engender confidence,  faith and optimism.

5.  Creativity:  Develop your creative potential. Begin to express yourself in music, art or dance and you might experience increased self esteem, reduced anxiety and greater satisfaction in life. 

6.   Humor:  Find the humor in everyday situations. Learn to see the lighter side of life. 

7.   Socialization: Spend time with people. Find support. Don't isolate yourself.

8.   Nutrition: Reduce or eliminate "toxic foods." Caffeine, sugar and tobacco head the list of psychotoxic substances.
