Today our guest was very entertaining and informative! And the topic. Whoa! Talk about something that we should talk about more often but are scared to.
Dr. Rebecca Schlau, Psychologist at Saline Psychological Services, wasn’t afraid and has so much insite on mental health. One of my favorite things I learned is that you can get a test done (like bloodwork) to find out which medication is best for your anxiety or depression. Imagine not having to keep taking medicine for a couple months and just se if the side effects are bad or if it doesn’t work! How incredibly helpful would it be to just know which one your body is built to use?!?!
She also shared tips on communicating with people. You gotta think about how your body and language and tone reflect your message. If you voice says something but your body says another, chances are you are probably not going to be perceived the way you want. Long story short, we could have kept Dr. Schlau there all day with questions. It was all so interesting and relevant. But, we had to part ways after lunch unfortunately.
