PostedBy Back Doc:
while not a psychologist, I did stay in a holiday inn express one time. Before you start dosing with anti-anxiety drugs that can leave you feeling like a zombie, go and read a copy of the Relaxation Response, by Dr. Herbert Benson. He is a Harvard trained cardiologist. I read his first addition over 30 years ago, when I realized that I just came out of a military situation that may have left me with a post-traumatic stress situation. I practice his simple technique 1-2x a day, and have recommended it to many of my patients.
He has since updated and revised his book. He also is the chairperson of The Mind/Body Medicine Institute at Harvard.
