Dr. Orma quoted in MSNBC article  “5 Ways to Keep Your Commute From Killing You”:

“Some people think of the commute as a prison — stuck in the car — so change your focus and try to do something more fun,” says Steve Orma, a psychologist in San Francisco. Play your favorite tunes and sing, or listen to books on audio (finding out what happens to the characters in the novel helps you look forward to something pleasurable). Spend the time learning a language or listening to a work-related seminar. Some universities have entire semester courses available for free audio download. Brainstorm an idea for work or problem solve an issue in your personal life. “Find ways to occupy your time and change your focus and the commute will go by quicker and the ride will be more enjoyable,” says Orma. Read the full article on MSNBC.com

Overcoming Social Anxiety in the Dating Scene: An Interview with Psychologist Dr. Steve Orma:

“Social anxiety is the feeling of being anxious in social or performance situations. Anxiety is the emotion that comes from the expectation that something negative or dangerous will happen to you in the future. So, social anxiety in dating comes from having an expectation that something bad will happen when you date. For example, you might think: What if I say or do something stupid on my date? What if I get rejected? What if I embarrass myself when I ask her/him out? In addition, there’s the belief that if your expectation comes true, then it will be a catastrophe (which is rarely if ever the case).” Read the full article on AssociatedContent.com
