My name is Dina, I’m a 20-year-old Psychology and Sociology major at Western university. I enjoy being active in the community by volunteering, and in my spare time, I enjoy reading books and enjoying strolls around the city. My ultimate career path is to one day be actively working in the mental health field and to focus on panic and anxiety disorders. Throughout my series I will be discussing how happiness and optimism and one's overall mindset and lifestyle, can help you develop the coping skills necessary to overcome panic and anxiety-related issues. Promoting good and healthy coping mechanisms can aid in enhancing one's overall quality of life. To make the commitment to make a change and to recognize that a change needs to be made is already a big step in and of itself.
