Tweetable Quotes

“I’m a Beverly Hills doctor. I have a very successful practice. I have millions of followers. And I have a flaw. I was easily addicted to social media, and I mean it in the true sense of addiction where it was really interfering with my relationships with my family.” (01:56) (Dr. Brian)

“Just like that, you can give somebody anything - anything at all - that’s basically distracting them from what they’re experiencing, and that has been shown to be very effective at reducing anxiety and panic attacks.” (05:02) (Dr. Brian)

“A lot of times when people are anxious about a situation, if you think about it, it’s just in somebody’s head. It’s how they are perceiving, or reacting to, a situation.” (06:37) (Dr. Brian)

“Acupressure, they concluded, was more effective for patients that are in the hospital - inpatients - or people getting ready for surgery compared to just finger massage.” (10:09) (Dr. Brian)

“The second thing is just having insight to recognize that you are potentially having a panic attack. Then you can use some of these things we’re talking about. And I don’t think it’s even beyond trying to distract yourself about something, because we know distraction is really effective. So, if you can focus on something else that you have to deal with, that can be a form of self-distraction. That’s also worth a consideration.” (12:26) (Dr. Brian)

“Number one, top of the list, is exercise. Regular exercise is so critical for stress and anxiety.” (14:25) (Dr. Brian)
