We often make excuses for over-indulging during the holiday season; however, sometimes, we eat to numb ourselves from uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, and boredom. If this scenario sounds familiar, then this lecture is for you! Come learn the triggers of your emotional eating and drinking, and more importantly, effective strategies for overcoming this self-sabotaging behavior.

Unconditional Other-Acceptance
Shannon O’Neill, MA

Remaining with the theme of my previous post, I will use my next two entries to discuss two additional forms of acceptance: Unconditional Other-Acceptance (UOA) and Unconditional Life-Acceptance (ULA).

Similar to USA, UOA is the processes of acknowledging who an individual is without placing a weighted, global judgment upon them. Personally, I believe this concept requires more effort than USA. After all, people must be considerate, right? Unfortunately, no. I do not control the universe and if you haven’t noticed, other New Yorkers are not eager to follow another individual’s personal guidelines. Ok, so maybe “must” is too strong of a word. How about others should be considerate? Wrong again. Where is it written that someone should behave one way or another?

Find away? Find a way.
William R. Taboas, MA

Facing discomfort, meeting deadlines, following through with commitments, addressing an issue with a co-worker, family member, or friend, are all part of daily living. Yet, we engage in procrastination, we put things off, we dodge, we flake out…we avoid. We walk away, steer from our obligations, needs, and goals, mostly because of fear and the potential stress it might cause. This is what I call “Finding Away”, perpetuating the cycle of walking away and finding comfort in avoidance.

Discomfort Intolerance
Kristen Tobias, M.A.

This blog is the third of four that will expound on the types of frustration intolerance (FI) discussed in my previous entry, Not All Frustrations are Created Equal.

Your life will expand, remain status quo, or shrink largely based on your willingness to stand discomfort. This assertion encapsulates an REBT term, discomfort intolerance, which refers to a personal philosophy that life not be too hard. Individuals who were prone to this thinking endorsed statements such as “I can’t stand doing things that involve a lot of hassle,” “I can’t stand having to persist at unpleasant tasks,” and “I can’t stand doing tasks when I’m not in the mood,” on the Frustration Discomfort Scale. Life can be relatively easy if you think this way because you will avoid thinking or behaving in ways that are uncomfortable. But, this type of thinking has been associated with depression. If your driving force is comfort and ease, you will miss out on pursuing that which is meaningful.

Join us October 8, 2014 for School Your Stress with Eric Sudler, Psy.D.

Stress is inevitable, but it does not have to be insufferable. As common as stress is in our everyday lives, it would benefit us to learn to manage it in a healthier manner. A little #stress can be helpful and at times facilitate productivity. Too much stress just leaves us pulling our hair out and feeling defeated. Whether it is studying for finals, dealing with #relationships, or enduring #financial hardship, stress does not have to take over your life...

Blog Block
Jennifer Shindman, M.S.

When I learned that I would be writing a blog as part of my externship at the Albert Ellis Institute, I almost immediately felt very anxious. Then, when I learned that the topic of each blog was my choice, I became even more anxious; I have freer reign to mess up! To avoid the discomfort of feeling anxious, I avoided sitting down to write this blog.

Then I started to think about what I was doing, and how much this behavior (avoiding writing because of my anxious feelings) was going to hurt me in the long run. I’ve written hundreds, probably thousands of papers throughout my life, so why is writing half a page blog about a topic related to REBT (something I am greatly interested in) so difficult?

Effective Complaining
William R. Taboas, M.A.

We all complain. Grumbling, criticizing and whining are all common behaviors we engage in on our day to day activities. But do you ever wonder if you complain too much? Has anyone said that you’re a total bummer, or maybe that you’re way too critical or judgmental? Are people avoiding you or tuning out when you complain? Is it getting in the way of school or work? More importantly: Is complaining getting in the way of you carrying on the things that you need to do? If so, maybe your complaining is not as effective as you hoped, and these are signs that you’re complaining needs some adjustment.

Let me begin by asking you a question: What would it take for you to consider yourself successful?

-A prestigious career?
-A sizable bank account?
-A thinner figure?

Although individually defined, the pressure for success can take over one’s life and often define self-worth. We have all seen the articles and many of us have fallen victim to them – 7 unique ways to attain success or 5 habits that the super successful do before 5 a.m. Individuals tend to read these columns, believing they will acquire success and finally be satisfied with who they are. Yet, what happens if they fail to follow the guidelines?
