Anxiety-Prone Home Inspections

Staying in anticipation of Home Inspections stimulates anxieties. That is normal and a part of life. But what have you to worry about if you have taken the measures to make your home absolutely spick and span and get everything working well? In this article, I cite examples from real life where I had to go through great home inspections.

First of all, I remember when I was overseas, right before I had been conferred upon the degree in the graduation ceremony, I was working hard every day to clean my dorm room and the attached bathroom part by part. A few days before leaving my dorm, I was talking with the caretaker, and he said, “Come in inside your room. I will show you what to clean.” I was baffled but the consequences were lovely. He looked at the window and then the walls, shelves, table and the floor but he didn’t find dirt anywhere. It made me smile because I had been cleaning my room part by part all along. “OK”, he said, “Everything seems alright. Just make sure the bathroom is clean as well.” Then he stalked out. I was supposed to get caution money for my room and the day before I was leaving, the caretaker was supposed to hand it over to me after the cleaning inspection of my room. But instead he called me downstairs to his office, asking me to sign a form and then handing me over the caution money. And then I was free! I said to myself, Wow, my room doesn’t have to go through the inspection after all because he had already seen the status of my room a few days back! Lucky break!

I had to confront another cleaning inspection overseas in another country. Apartments on the campus were subjected to inspection every six months. Apart from the pressure of studies, I cleaned and cleaned bit by bit until the big day arrived. The inspector arrived on time. Now this was an apartment, covering a bigger area than the dorm room with the attached bathroom in the other country, where the cleaning up was easier. So here was the inspector. He examined the carpets, the bathroom, closets, bedroom, living room and finally the tiny kitchen. In the kitchen, he looked inside the refrigerator, drawers and shelves and then the cooking stove. There, I didn’t know the cooking stove’s lid could be lifted up and as he did so, there were tiny grains of cooked meals. Here is what he said, “Of course, the entire apartment is clean and tidy. You cannot fail the test simply because of this. Just clean it up!” It was something I learnt and made sure to have it absolutely immaculate before I left the apartment for good.

Now in my country, people still have to learn about proper cleanliness and management of homes. When owners of an estate rent it out to tenants, the tenants are careless enough to go about damaging everything and not to talk of tidiness during their stay. When the tenants leave, it is the responsibility of the owners to take care of furnishing and decorating and above all, make it all spotless and luminous for new tenants. It is funny but that is the way with our part of the world! Yet, estate owners could make it a part of their agreement policies that tenants keep everything inside their homes working well and clean up to the brim otherwise they would be fined. In fact, owners should make it a point that their tenants leave their homes in the same standard as that when they had first put their foot in.

3 Ways to Calm Networking Anxiety

One of the best ways to be a great networker is to have confidence. Confidence takes on many forms including professionalism, a strong brand, consistency and a genuine desire to build relationships. But in order to be more confident, it is important to get rid of the anxiety that is sometime accompanied with networking.

Listed below are three helpful tips for reducing anxiety and being more confident at your next event.

Be Prepared

Do not leave your networking to chance. Take the necessary time to prepare for your events. Preparation can involve practicing your elevator pitch, drafting a few conversation questions or staying updated on current or industry events. Anticipate the individuals you hope to meet and plan accordingly.

Be Network Minded

If you feel too intimidated to attend events alone, reach out to people in your networks. Invite your friends, co-workers or colleagues as your guest. Ask to attend events that they are attending. Reach out to the organizer or host of the association through social media and make pre-networking connections. Use this as an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and be more social and engaging. Taking the first step and initiating a connection is definitely a sign of confidence.

Be Focused

Before the event, write down a few goals that you hope to achieve by going to the event. How many people do you plan to meet and build relationships? How can you give back or pay it forward? How do you want to promote your brand, product, service or initiative? How can you learn from others and share resources or information?

Use these tips and practical methods to reduce anxiety and focus on productive networking. Being able to be prepared, build your networks and focus on your goal leads to professional and career success.

Travel Tip – Pre-Booking Your Airport Transfers

When on holidays or traveling the last place you want to be is stuck at the airport waiting for a ride to your hotel or accommodation. Whilst modern airports, such as the Gold Coasts, offer modern facilities and a range of transfer services it is often found that peak times and peak season demands can stretch these services seeing long waiting cues and frustrated passengers.

This is not a great start to the holiday, particularly if you have not been to the city before which adds another layer of anxiety. It just doesn’t need to be that way; just like you plan and book the flight it is also best to do the same for the transfer to your destination. Planning ahead can remove the anxiety and make the start of your trip an enjoyable experience.

There are a number of options available for pre-booked airport transfers which include:

Shuttle buses – Some shuttle services take you straight to your door and others use central drop off points. Some downsides are that you may have a long ride with multiple stops as they drop off at all the destinations. Although some see this as a great way to see a little of the area and meet others traveling the same way.

Limousine services – there are many companies that provide transfer services via a range of vehicle options to suit your needs. Whether there is only one person or large groups of people, the limousine service can tailor a service to suit. This method takes you direct to your door, and the driver, who meets you at the airport lounge and assists with your luggage, is dedicated to your needs. Prices can be surprisingly competitive, particularly for group travel.

Airport Transfer Tips:

When booking your transfer let the operator know exactly who and what will be arriving for transfer. If you have surfboards, fishing rods or something of the like let the operator know so they can arrange the right vehicle.

The operator will want to know how many passengers and age of passengers, by law in many regions children under a certain age are required to use baby seats which can be supplied by arrangement. They can also make special arrangements for large amounts of luggage including trailers or luggage cars.

Also when booking, let the operator know your arriving flight number so if the flight is delayed, or early, they can ensure that there is someone to meet you when you arrive. Also carry the company’s name and contact number with you.

Plan ahead by pre-booking your airport transfers and start your next trip or holiday relaxed and hassle free.

Anxiety Treatment Options

It is not a piece of cake to go through a day full of anxious thoughts of practically everything one can imagine himself to go through. It is not only difficult but also delimiting.

Anxiety is a chronic condition that is focused on worrying about things with no specific or actual causes at all. This explains why people with anxiety disorders experience constant anxiety without knowing what provokes feelings like restlessness and nervousness to arise. Thus, even when they have realized that they should not be anxious, they still could not control the sensations.

People with anxiety disorders are subjected to feelings of looming gloom. However, help could be found. There are varieties of anxiety treatment options available to help release the person from his fears. You must be reminded though that not all anxiety treatments would work for you. Also, the treatment that helped the other person would not necessarily help you as well.

Medications

Medications are not designed to cure anxiety disorders. These are often taken simultaneously with other forms of treatment options such as psychotherapy so as to relive symptoms.

Psychotherapy or talk therapy

Basically, psychotherapy helps the person deal with his condition through counselling that targets problems related with anxiety. Mental health professionals such as social workers, counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists can best deliver services under psychotherapy.

Complimentary and Alternative Medicines (CAMs)

Complimentary and Alternative Medicines is a group of health and medical practices, procedures, methods and products that have diverse roots. The basic reason why methodologies under this group are considered as complimentary and alternative is that they are not yet taken into conventional medicine. However, this does not negate the fact that they work very well for some patients and could induce the healing process. Often, procedures in this group are backed with scientific research. The key matters are still questionable though.

A number of medical doctors are known to practice this kind of medicine combined with conventional medicine.

Acupuncture, for example, is a type of alternative medicine that is largely employed to cure a number of disorders that are often associated with behavioural and psychological difficulties. This method uses needles that are inserted on pressure points that are known to be the seat of life energy or qi. The general idea of this method is to seek the balance of life energies to achieve health.

Since this method encourages relaxation and has calming effects, patients of anxiety disorders are advised to take them.

Another method that induces relaxation is massage therapy. Obviously, this could not penetrate directly into the core of the problem. But this is efficient in delivering the person away from his anxiety provoking thoughts.

Meditation, on the other hand, involves a rhythmic breathing, comfortable sitting position and calming of the mind. Thus, it helps the patient seek rest from his mind-bothering thoughts that could build up towards anxiety.

Anxiety is fear and stress combined. The key element to alleviating the psychological state of the person with anxiety disorder is to remove these two. Breathing and rest is vital in any form of releasing stress. Thus, any treatment that creates condition with the least stress and fear would be helpful in treating anxiety.

Because of the benefits of both practices, the trend in medicine slopes toward integrated medicine. This means that both complimentary and alternative practices can be added to conventional medicine to promote maximized effects.

What Your Anxiety May Be Trying To Tell You – And Why It’s Important To Listen

Is Your Anxiety Trying To Tell You Something Important?

What if anxiety is not always just a symptom to be treated, but a ‘health-seeking signal’ inviting us to reconnect with the truest parts of ourselves that have been neglected or repressed? Below is a recent example from my work as a licensed Psychotherapist illustrating how anxiety at times acts as an important messenger inviting us to heal psycho-emotional wounds sustained in childhood and adolescence, if only we are able and willing to tune in and listen.

What Is Anxiety?

Anxiety is commonly believed to be an automatic, ‘built-in’ response to perceived threats, and is often referred to as our ‘fight-or-flight arousal’, or ‘fight or flight response’ as a species. Therefore, it stands to reason that children who grew up in chaotic, possibly traumatic home environments where their fight or flight (arousal) response was frequently activated are susceptible to developing various kinds of anxiety disorders even prior to the onset of adulthood. Hence, it is a concern that physicians and psychiatrists whose patients report anxiety that is interfering with their daily functioning and quality of life typically prescribe anti-anxiety medication, but do not always recommend that their patient also consider seeing a qualified Mental Health professional so as to explore the possible root cause(s) of the anxiety, such as early childhood trauma that has been unknowingly repressed (the focus of this article), as well as identify possible additional or alternative (i.e., non-prescription) treatments.

Signs And Symptoms Of Anxiety

Although anxiety can take on many forms, the below are signs and symptoms commonly associated with this behavioral health disorder:

  • Excessive Worry
  • Irritability
  • Sleep Disturbance
  • Poor Concentration
  • Restlessness
  • Muscle Tension
  • Fatigue

Psychotherapy As A Means Of Successfully Treating Chronic Anxiety

What if anxiety was not always something to be avoided and/or medicated away, but was instead something it would benefit us to be curious about? One way that I invite my clients to explore this possibility is to ask them to tune into their thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations the next time they notice they are feeling anxious. What is happening right then in the moment? Was there a possible ‘trigger’ initiating the anxiety? As the following Case Study illustrates, this simple exercise alone can provide invaluable information regarding what anxiety ‘signals’ might be trying to convey.

A Case Study Addressing Anxiety

I once had a client (whom I will call ‘Jeremy – not his actual name) share with me in session that he had recently felt extreme anxiety when he entered a hotel lobby on a business trip. He attributed this to what he thought was the ‘Generalized Anxiety Disorder’ (GAD) he had been diagnosed with by a psychiatrist years before, prior to beginning his psychotherapeutic work with me. I suggested early on in therapy that he begin keeping an ‘Awareness Journal’ and to write in this journal whenever he experienced particularly strong symptoms of anxiety. During one such onset of extreme symptoms that occurred during a business trip, Jeremy realized while writing in his journal that he had begun experiencing anxiety symptoms when he saw a certain type of old-fashioned couch in the hotel lobby he had just walked into. Upon further reflection in his Awareness Journal, Jeremy suddenly realized that the retro-style couch looked nearly identical in style and in color to a couch that was in the living room of the home he had lived in as a child. Needless to say, this gave us much to explore in this and future sessions as he began to remember and share traumatic events from childhood that up until then he had unknowingly repressed.

Over time, the chronic, ‘generalized’ anxiety Jeremy had been suffering from for years receded as he continued to work diligently in psychotherapy to reconnect with the wounded, ‘lost’ parts of himself he had disconnected from during childhood while growing up in a chaotic, unpredictable, alcoholic family system. He eventually chose to stop taking his anti-anxiety medication under the supervision of a physician and is able to self-manage his anxiety symptoms via deep breathing exercises and Mindfulness Meditation practices he learned during therapy, along with Somatic-Psychology techniques (for more information on the use and efficacy of Somatic-Psychology in the treatment and healing of trauma refer toBessel van der Kolk’s book The Body Keeps The Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma). Jeremy also continues to self-reflect in his Awareness Journal, which has become a critical aspect of his ongoing psycho-emotional healing and growth. (Note: Details of specific client cases have been changed to protect privacy).

Anxiety and Psychotropic Medication

While taking anti-anxiety medication to minimize anxiety symptoms is a personal choice, and in some cases is medically advisable, there are other effective interventions that a person suffering from anxiety can pursue, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; keeping an Awareness Journal as part of ongoing Psychotherapeutic-based Intrapsychic / Family Systems work (as discussed in the above Case Study); engaging in deep breathing exercises; yoga; daily physical exercise; and homeopathic remedies as prescribed by a Naturopathic doctor.

Recent research also confirms that Mindfulness Meditation can be highly effective in addressing anxiety symptoms. Mindfulness is a practice that involves being fully engaged in whatever is going on around you. “It is simply the act of paying attention to whatever you are experiencing, as you experience it”, explains Kate Hanley, author of A Year of Daily Calm: A Guided Journal for Creating Tranquility Every Day. “By choosing to turn your attention away from the everyday chatter of the mind and on to what your body is doing, you give the mind just enough to focus on that it can quiet down.” In 2013 researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center published a study that confirmed that Mindfulness Meditation reduces anxiety at a neural level.

Working Mindfully With Anxiety

As the above brief discussion illustrates, there may be far more to anxiety than meets the eye. While it is understandable why anyone experiencing anxiety would want relief from these extremely uncomfortable symptoms, it may be that the symptoms themselves are pointing to possible solutions to those who are willing to explore their anxiety via mindfully cultivating an attitude of acceptance, curiosity, and patience. Journaling, painting, and other forms of creative expression, as well as psychotherapy and/or sharing in a support group, may offer a means of discovering the wisdom that anxiety has to offer.

A special note of caution: It is recommended that a person experiencing frequent anxiety symptoms get a complete physical to rule out disorders like Graves (Thyroid) Disease, and other medical conditions that can cause extreme and/or chronic anxiety symptoms.

4 Positives of Using an Airport Transfer Service

An airport transfer service provides a fast and reliable solution to get to the airport on time and in comfort. It can get a business trip or holiday off to a great start, and removes a lot of the stress of self driving to the airport, especially if trying to navigate an unfamiliar area with limited time. Here are a few positives of using an airport transport service:

Less stressful

A major positive of using an airport transfer service is the ability to reduce or control issues related to travel anxiety. Driving to the local airport can be stressful for several reasons, such as not being comfortable with making long journeys, not knowing the directions, etc. By relying on a professional to drive you to your destination, it is that much easier to feel relaxed and simply focus on your trip. Also, this type of journey can often be booked two or three months in advance to ensure a ride is available when needed.

Knowing your way

While you may not be familiar with the city layout or most time efficient route to get to the airport, a professional driver will have full knowledge of the best way to navigate to your destination. This should give the shortest trip time and help bypass most of the congested streets and areas where possible. By self driving there is the potential of getting lost which can contribute to travel stress and increase the risk of missing your flight.

Courteous travel experience

Many people enjoy a courteous travel experience when using an airport transport service. Most companies will ensure an experienced driver is in place to provide a friendly and helpful service. This can help to build the positive relationship to increase the levels of calm and comfort for the duration of the trip. Also, for the travelers that have some time to spare before the departure time, the driver is often able to give valuable insight in the best local pubs, restaurants, or hotels.

Reliability and security

Any trip to the local airport is likely to include traveling with luggage which has the possibility of getting lost when traveling by public transport. However, by traveling with an airport transfer service it is much easier to keep everything safe and secure. Also, the size of the vehicle that can be hired for the trip to the airport can vary to make sure there is enough space to easily accept you, your travel companions and luggage.

Customer Service Tips – How to Handle Irate Customers

Are you ready to learn how to keep every guest happy? It starts with making sure that your managers are thoroughly trained in every position within your restaurant. They need to know all the jobs, so they can step in if someone calls off sick, or if sales are higher than expected.

The manager needs to be highly trained in excellent customer service. This type of service is called “wow” service because your customers will say “Wow!” about their experience at your restaurant.

One way to easily accomplish that “wow” experience is simply by telling your managers that every time they are in direct contact with any guest, that they are smiling, being friendly and attentive to the guests. If a famous person was coming to your restaurant, how would you treat that person? Every guest should be receive that same VIP treatment.

In case of a dissatisfied, angry, or irate customers, we recommend applying the GLAD technique. This will dramatically decrease customer related matters, and lead to customer recovery.

What is the GLAD Technique?

  1. Go to the guest
  2. Listen carefully to the guest
  3. Apologize to the guest
  4. Do what it takes to solve the problem

When approaching the upset customer, always shows genuine concern. It is important to listen to the guest without cutting them off. Make sure that you take the time to fully understand their concerns. Remain calm. Responding to anger in a calm manner may help reduce the person’s anxiety. Don’t be fake, be real.

Always apologize to the guest, even if the customer is wrong. Even when you are certain the person is wrong, go with the mindset that the person is right. Never offer excuses as to why the problem occurred, but offer solutions instead.

Solutions will vary depending on the complaint and the circumstances. Offer a solution and ask if this will meet the customer’s needs. Go above and beyond. Remember, one angry customer leads to other lost customers. Keep in mind that for each customer you lose, you will lose 11 customers within the next few weeks. That number will compound because those 11 people will also repeat what they heard from the first customer. Ultimately you could be losing hundreds of customers because of one dissatisfied customer. If the matter is serious, you could even lose your restaurant’s reputation, and the restaurant could end up being shut down.

Every customer that leaves your restaurant tells family, friends and co-workers about the experience at your restaurant. If the experience was mediocre they won’t say anything, but if it was very good experience at your restaurant they will tell others. If it was a negative experience and they walked out dissatisfied, then the reputation of your restaurant will be impacted. Negative feedback from your customers could mean the end of your business. Don’t underestimate the power of the word-of-mouth effect. Word-of-mouth will work with you or against you depending on the guest’s experience.

Do you really want to lose business because of customer complaints? Teaching effective customer service techniques to your managers and staff should be at the top of your to-do list.

Teach your managers to be proactive in preventing customer related matters. Manager presence in the dining room is a wonderful path to reduce customer complaints. The manager should spend at least 80% of his/her time in the dining room, and only 10% in the manager’s office.

The manager also needs to physically approach each customer’s table to ensure that WOW guest service is in effect. The manager also needs to learn how to detect negative body language and how to express positive body language.

How do customers show their dissatisfaction with their body language?

  • When you are in direct eye-to-eye contact, you can witness the anger in the customer’s eyes.
  • Seeing untouched food, especially when everybody at the table ate their food, except the one customer who barely touched his or her food.
  • The manager asks the customer, “So how was your meal and service tonight?” The customer replies, “It’s okay”. If the customer was fully satisfied with both the service and the meal they may say it was “terrific” or “great,” not just “okay.”
  • When you look at a guest and you get an uncomfortable “gut” feeling, act on that feeling.
  • You see a customer looking around as though they want someone to help them. You may even see them glaring at a server speaking with other customers.

What is your body language saying?

  • Always use direct eye contact when talking to your guests. Never look away while you are talking to your guest. Looking away gives the impression that you are not interested in what the other person has to say.
  • Never cross your arms when talking to guests, this could be interpreted as shutting them out or anger.
  • Never roll your eyes, as this is very disrespectful and it appears that you are belittling their concerns.
  • Constantly listen to the guest even if they are angry. It may help to allow the person to vent their anger. Always acknowledge their feelings.
  • Ask the customer what would improve the visit to your restaurant.

What do you do with Moody Customers?

This is your opportunity to turn around the customer’s mood from a bad to good. Make certain that you are on top of things and pay attention to details. If you have any concerns about their experience, you may even offer the table a free appetizer or dessert. It may seem like you are losing money by “giving away” food or “discounting” their meals; however, you will lose more money from each lost customer than you will for that one food item or meal. If you successfully turn things around, then you may create repeat business. Kindness and consideration of their needs will often overcome their anger.

A wise person said, “How you handle positive feedback is important, but it is more important to know how to handle negative feedback.” Make sure you tell the customers that you appreciate the fact that they took the time to tell you about their experience. Don’t make excuses, instead find solutions. Don’t disagree with the customer, even if you know the guest is wrong.

If you don’t learn from your mistakes, you are doomed to repeat them again and again.

8 Things That Create Public Restroom Anxiety

Did you know that toilet or restroom phobias are more common than we think? Clinicians classify these phobias as anxiety disorders and a form of social phobias.

After taking an unofficial poll from random individuals regarding their thoughts about public restrooms this question was asked, “Can you name one of your biggest pet peeves when using public restrooms?” Interestingly, before they answered the question, simultaneously a strange and sudden snarl of the lip along with a look of disgust appeared.

Germaphobia is one of the conditions that heighten restroom anxiety especially when patrons are dining in a popular eating establishment. The following pet peeves are, but not limited to the overall concern patrons have with public restrooms, whether it’s in a department store, movie theater, sports stadium, office building or interstate rest area.

1. Foul odor

2. Empty toilet paper dispenser

3. Empty soap dispenser

4. Wads of paper on the floor

5. Empty paper towel dispenser

6. Overflowing waste baskets

7. Filthy toilets and urinals

8. Dirty floors and discolored build up on tile grout

If any of these answers sound remotely familiar to you, guess what? You are not alone. One often wonders about the type of hygienic habits many individuals practice at home when they do not respectfully use public bathrooms as we expect them to or have the common courtesy to avoid leaving a repulsive mess afterward. People should not simply assume that someone else is paid to clean up their mess that looks like a crime scene when they are done.

Fear and anxiety resulting in such phobias work on the mind and sends signals where the imagination envisions invisible germ monsters permeating through the air, creeping from the pores, cracks, and crevices in walls, floors, vents, toilets, and door handles. Such anxiety disorders can mimic traits of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or agoraphobia.

Parcopresis is a type of phobia where sufferers fear sitting down on toilets or being confined to the tightly enclosed space of the bathroom stall, with the inability to defecate in public toilets. Paruresis is a disorder affecting individuals who are unable to urinate regardless of how much discomfort they may be in.

Such symptoms can be stressful and crippling, but there are treatments for these disorders such as hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Business establishments have an obligation to provide and maintain clean restroom hygiene which is a direct reflection on their overall customer service ethic.

The Addictive Society and Cannabis

This is the first of a three-part series about the contextual influences modern society has on mood disorders and addictions, 2) the risks of buy-in, and 3) the possibility of soul renewal via (but not limited to)therapeutic cannabis use.

Part I: The Addictive System

“We live in a society bloated with data yet starved for wisdom. We’re connected 24/7, yet anxiety, fear, depression and loneliness is at an all-time high. We must course-correct.” ~Elizabeth Kapu’uwailani Lindsey

The “addictive system” (1) is the elephant in the living room. Mood disorders and addictions, like everything else, do not occur in a vacuum. Yet we tend to miss the overarching societal ‘space’ when only focused on individual issues, like depression and anxiety or opioid and social-media addictions.

What exactly is this context?

It is an invisible psychological environment, the backdrop within which people are unwittingly succumbing to addiction or suffering mood disorders. The rise in antidepressant prescriptions and the number of suicides profile the growing dark side of modern society.

It is a complex, interconnected web of public (government) and private corporations, aligned with the media in the marketing and advertising of information, products and services 24/7: a surround-sound cacophony of targeted messaging designed to shape both public opinion and an ever-stronger consumer mindset.

Some call it propaganda.

Intangible, psychological concepts are applied to marketing and sales, ones that supposedly drive all humans: the perceived need for: social status, safety, winning, the right image, having the best, looking good, gaining an edge, keeping up with your neighbor, excellence, being the first, etc. Advertising messages then weave-in the promise of helping the ‘consumer’ achieve one or another of these intangible goals when they purchase their information, product and/or service. The ubiquity of these messages in modern society have become normalized and even welcomed.

How did we get here?

Edward Bernays, in early to mid-20th century, is most likely the person who set the bar for public relations and advertising in the U.S. He was the nephew to the well-known psychiatrist, Sigmund Freud, and like his uncle before him, Bernays believed in the predictability of the human unconscious when it came to the human and psychological motivations of self-preservation, security, aggression and sex.

He transferred what he learned from his uncle to help launch his career in public relations and became wildly successful. Due to his efforts on behalf of the pork industry in 1915, bacon became a mainstay of the traditional breakfast. In the 1920’s he make smoking fashionable for women by calling cigarettes “torches of freedom” to advance the tobacco industry, and established fluoride as indispensable to dentistry in the 1930’s (a waste product of aluminum) for his client, Alcoa Aluminum.
