THIS SEGMENT IS SPONSORED BY VCU HEALTH. THE DOCTOR IS IN AND YOU HAVE QUESTIONS AS MORE PEOPLE BECOME VACCINATED AND COVI19D- CASES DECLINE, THE U.S. IS INCHING BACK TOWARDS SOMETHING RESEMBLING NORMALCY. FOR MANY THAT REOPENING WILL CERTAINLY BE WELCOMED BUT ALSO LEAD TO A GREAT DEAL OF STRESS AND ANXIETY. VCU PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSOR DR. MICHAEL SOUTHAM JARO JOINS US. HE SAYS THIS IS PERFECYTL NORMAL AND THERE ARE WAYS TO HELP MANAGE IT. IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU, .DR THANK YOU. IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU, JESSICA. THANKS FOR INVITING ME ON. IT'S OUR PLEASURE. THIS LANDSCAPE CERTAINLY HAS SHIFTED SO MUHC OVER THE LAST MANY, MANY MONTHS AND HERE IT IS STILL CONTINUING TO SHIFT. THIS IS CHANGE IS HARD &gt;&gt;. YEAH, NO KIDDING. I MEAN LOOK, HUMANS WE LIKE PREDICTABILITY WE LIKE TROL ABILITY HELPS US FEEL SAFE. THAT HELPS US ACTIVATE THE FANCY WORD COMING SO BE READY ARASYMPATHETI NERVOUS SYSTEM THAT'S THE NERVOUS SYSTEM THAT WE ACTIVATE WHEN WE'RE FEELING LIKE WE'RE IN A SAFE PLACE AND SO WE DO THINGS LIKE GROW IT, EATA ND DIGEST OUR FOOD. THAT'S A SAFE FEELING. AND SO WE LIKE PREDICTABILITY. WE LIKE CONTROLLABILITY. THE START OF THE PANDEMIC JUST THREW EVERYONE INTO THIS UNCONTROLLABLE, UNPREDICTABLE SITUATION AND IT TOOK US A NLOG TIME TO GET OURSELVES TO A PLACE WHERE WE STARTED FEELING LIKE WE HAD A RHYTHM AGAIN WHERE IT WAS A NEW RHYTHM. NO, MOST PEOPLE DIDN'T LIKE PEOPLE WERE IN ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT RHYTHMS BUT SO THEER IS THIS UNPREDICTABILITY UNCONTROLLABIL THAT WE FINALLY MASTERED NDA NOW ARE TRANSITIONING OUT OF THAT AND INTO SOME NEW USUALOR REFERRED TO US LIKE A NORMALCY. WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT'S GOING TO LOOK LIKE YET. THAT'S JUST ANOTHER UNPREDICTABLE, UNCONTROLLABLE SITUATION FOR US. SO IT MAKES IT TRICKY FOR HUMANS REALLY ANY ANIMAL MOST ANIMALS REALLY LIKE THAT PREDICTABILITY CONTROLLABILITY. SO IT'S GOING TO BE TOUGH IF &gt;&gt; I COUDL JUST GO ON THE RECORD AS SAYING I AM TIRED OF SAYING RETURN TO NORMAL BECAUSE IT'S NOT GOING TO BE WHAT WE KNEW BEFORE. SO WE'RE SORT OF EMBRACING THAT OR TRYING TO WRAP OUR MINDS AROUND THAT. WE HAVE ABOUT TWO MINUTES LEFT . YOU ENMTIONED CERTAINLY THIS CHANGE. YOU KNOW, MANY OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED GRIEF. WE HAVE LOST THOSE WE LOVE THOSE WE KNOW WE'VE SEEN US COLLECTIVELY. WE'VE ALSO LOST THE LIFE THAT WE LOVED AND KNEW. SO HOW ARE WE HANDLING THIS AS WE GO FORWARD &gt;&gt;? YEAH, IT'S A GREAT POINT. YES, G IUESS SO THE GRIEF PIECE IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND NORMALLY WE DO IT. WE'RE SOCIAL ANIMALS SO WE DO GRIEF IN GROUPS WE DO TOGETHER WE SHARE MEMORIES OF A LOST LOVED ONE AND SO IT'LL BE IMPORTANT AS WE GO BACK TO THIS NEW USUAL THAT WE'RE GOING TO LIVE IN THAT WE ARE ABLE TO CONNECT WITH OTHSER TO TALK ABOUT THOSE LOSSES AND THOSE LOSSES FOR MANY WEER PEOPLE. BUT THEN WE LOST OTHER THINGS TOO. WE LOST THE ABILITY TO CELEBRATE IMPORTANT RITUALS IN OUR LIVES WHETHER THAT BE SOMETHIGN AS SIMPLE AS A JOB PROMOTION. BUT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOMETHING REALLY MAORJ LIKE A WEDDING AND BABY A GRADUATION. SO IT'LL BE IMPORTANT AS WE BEGIN TO RETURN TO THAT NEW USUAL TO BE ABLE TO GATHER TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE THOSE THINGS. THOSE ARE SOCIAL THINGS THAT WE DID &gt;&gt; TOGETHER A NEW &gt;&gt; USUAL. I DO LIKE THAT. WHAT ARE YOU RECOMMENDING? HOW ARE YOU ADVISING FOLKS TO NAVIGATE THROUGH THIS STRESS AND ANXIETY? WELL &gt;&gt;, LET'S CIRCLE BACK TO THAT IDEA OF CONTROLLABILITY PREDICTABILITY ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HELPED US THE PANDEMIC OR HELPED MANY WAS TO BUILD SOME ROUTINE AND THERE WAS A NEW ROUTINE NEW PREDICTABILITY SO THAT CAN BE SOMETHING WE DO NO. THE OTHER THING WE TALK A LOT ABOUT IS THIS IDEA OF WHEN YOU GET INTO A SWIMMING POOL FOR MOST OF US WHO ARE THE FIRST TIME IN A POOL WE START IN THE SHALLOW END AND WE WORK OUR WAY GRADUALLY TO THE DEEP END. WE DON'T JUST JUMP TO THE DEEP END. SO SIMILARLY AS WE EDGE OUR WAY BACK INTO THE NEW USUAL, WE CAN SORT OF START IN THE SHALLOW END AND THEN WORK OUR WAY UP TO PLACES WHERE WE'RE MORE AND MORE COMFORTABLE. I &gt;&gt; LIKE THAT I MIGHT ALSO TAKE SOME FLOATS WITH MEO T HELP MAKE IT EVEN SMOOTHER &gt;&gt;. YEAH, REALLY GOOD. REALLY GOOD. I MEAN YOU ALSO MENTIONED AT THE START ABOUT TAKING A DEEP BREATH AND YOU KNOW IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS AGAIN THE PARASYMPATHETI NERVOUS SYSTEM GETS ACTIVATED ANY TIME WE'RE ABLE TO TAKE NIGHT SLOW DEEP BREATHS AND SO AGAIN TAKING A DEEP BREATH IS ACTUALLY A REALLY EXCELLENT STRATEGY, GREAT IDEAS AND GREAT INSIGHTS. THANK YOU SO MUCH, DR SOUTHAM. WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. &gt;&gt; THANKS. IT WAS GREAT TALKING WTHI ABSOLUTELY. WE'LL SHARE A LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT VCU HEALTH.
