Have you or someone you love been experiencing anxiety, panic, and confusion during all this global craziness? COVID-19 is being dubbed the ‘anxiety pandemic,’ which is why I brought my go-to doctor on emotional mastery onto the show today.
Dr. Joan Rosenburg is an expert psychologist, master clinician, trainer, creator of Emotional Mastery and corporate consultant who is internationally recognized for her thought leadership and influence in personal development. Today Dr. Rosenberg is here to provide you with powerful tools to manage your mindset and ease your panic sensations.
By creating a sense of calm and predictability within your own home, you can manage your anxious state and shift into a calmer mindset in a safe and easy way. It is time to establish a new sense of normal while we navigate this crazy time together and start putting ourselves in charge of what we think and feel.
Why not use this opportunity to start making the choices that you have been procrastinating on and tap into what feels good for you? By taking control of your mind instead of focusing on your circumstances, you can approach this quarantine and pandemic with the mentality of who you want to become. You don’t have to stay in a state of high alertness or alarm. By thinking, speaking and acting in the direction you want to go, you can take control of your mindset and overcome this anxiety pandemic with ease and grace.

“This is a time of profound loss for all of us and its a time of uncertainty and unpredictability. And the speed in which everything happened really is jarring. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t actually manage what we are going through in a way that is not quite so reactive.” (12:28)
“My focus for people, if I pull it down to just one sentence, is to think, to speak and to act in the direction that you want to go.” (13:27)
“Until we get into the, if you will, familiarity of the quarantine, of being sheltered at home, and we start to then make use of that familiarity to calm us down, then we can be more focused in the present and begin to make decisions about how we want to use the time.” (18:02)
“When you know that you can establish something that is more predictable within your own home, then it feels more ordered, then it feels more calm.” (23:07)
“We’re taking charge with our minds and not focusing on the circumstance; instead, we are focusing on who we want to become and what we want to do.” (25:26)
