Should I Seek Professional Help For Anxiety And Panic?

Anxiety disorder coping skills can help you alleviate the many symptoms accompanying this sometimes debilitating disease. Yes, disease. Thirty years ago, anxiety disorders were unheard of and were inappropriately deemed as nervous conditions. Thus, prescribed medications became the fashion and ultimately an addition. To this end, here are 5 tips to help alleviate the symptoms.

Hyperfocus- When something captures your attention, you can focus on it for hours. The ability to mentally tune out distractions and become so focused means you can get a lot done, as well as have a huge sense of satisfaction afterwards.

Just because I was clueless doesn’t mean that you have to be. In that spirit, I created this website to cover all of the need-to-know information about how to gain admisisons to the graduate program of your choice. Way back when, I could only have dreamed of having all of this accessible information at my fingertips, much less someone at the other end of a wireless connection to answer my questions about grad school. (OK so I wasn’t exactly applying for grad school back in the Dark Ages, but you get my drift.) If it is your choice to earn a masters, Psy.D., or Ph.D., there is no reason why you shouldn’t get your very own acceptance letter, as long as you’re armed with the right information.
