Cultivating Psychological Skills with Bonnie Robson, M.D.

Updated: Mar 26

Living with stress and anxiety has become the rule rather than the exception in today’s world. Everyone develops coping strategies of some kind, but without encouragement and guidance these strategies can be dysfunctional and even harmful.

On this episode of the Bendy Bodies Podcast, Dr. Bonnie Robson talks through the risks inherent in social and physical isolation and how to develop strategies that can support and encourage long-term mental and physical health. She explores how and why sleep is affected by stress offering ways to better regulate this crucial component of the circadian cycle. Dr. Robson walks through developing a safe place, the importance of paying attention to the present moment, and how and when you should take your emotional temperature. She outlines ways to build several tools for your emotional toolbox, and reminds us that in these times, good enough is a great goal to have.

I am so grateful to Dr. Robson for generously sharing her wisdom and to my guest cohost, Jennifer Milner, for sharing her insights.
