Finding Your Holy Grail helps people navigate the post-pandemic reality we now find ourselves in.
In this episode, the show’s host, Dr. Mandy Simon, interviews Dr. Matthew Welsh, a clinical psychologist who supports patients to overcome anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance misuse, and relationship issues.
They talk about the importance of managing uncertainty by maintaining a sense of control over your values. Right now, across the planet, people are experiencing great uncertainty in their lives. Whether it is waiting for results from a COVID test, or losing their jobs, or having to isolate themselves in quarantine. This is creating trauma responses – bringing up some of our core fears and challenging some of our fundamental needs.
Dr. Welsh explains the importance of recognizing that you always have some control over how you respond to unforeseen circumstances. As human beings, we are creative dreamers. By tapping into our core values we can all draw on our personal sovereignty to build resilience.
A powerful way to overcome stress is to understand your core motivators and act on them. So be tolerant, manage your blood pressure with guided relaxation techniques, and regain control by lowering your stress response.
The Show’s Call to Action is to be aware, recognize your values, and take meaningful action.
Awareness – having an acceptance of the situation and what is happening to you.
Evaluate – your core beliefs within this context and recognize the power of your own sovereignty.
Identify – meaningful actions that you can take based on your values to move forward authentically.
Dr. Matthew Welsh works as a clinical psychologist with the Veterans Association. He also hosts the Spiritual Media Blog and is a life coach supporting people to live their best life. If you are inspired by this show you can contact Dr. Welsh at email@example.com
