What is social anxiety and how do you cope with it?
In the first episode of Open-Minded: Unpacking Anxiety, Kendall Jenner sits down with licensed clinical psychologist and professor of psychology, Dr. Ramani Durvasula, to discuss the symptoms of anxiety she has experienced from a young age.
As Kendall opens up about her journey with social anxiety and asks questions from the Vogue community, Dr. Ramani provides tips and tricks for handling social anxiety and re-entering social situations post covid.
Does Kendall Jenner have an Anxiety disorder?
Kendall Jenner says:
“I am very aware of my anxieties. I don’t like the pity party. I don’t like talking about when I don’t feel too well,” Jenner said in the opening of the video.
“I don’t know. I am a little nervous just being kind of open about what I struggle with, and making it known to other people is a bit nerve-wracking.”
Jenner recalled experiencing anxiety at an early age that was heightened as the fashion model was propelled into the limelight.
“I think being overworked and being in the situation that I am in now is kind of what like set it out of control in a way,” Jenner said.
Feeling like she’s dying, wanting to be rushed to the hospital and numb limbs are symptoms Jenner said she’s experienced at times. Although she acknowledged being fortunate, she said being rich and famous doesn’t stop the disorder from afflicting her.
“I still have one of these,” Jenner said while pointing to her brain. “That thing up there doesn’t always … it’s not always happy and it’s not always connecting.”
What fear does Kendall Jenner have?
Kendall Jenner’s extremely strange phobia
Could there be a stranger phobia than one who fears small tiny holes?
The condition is known as trypophobia. what is trypophobia? a person who fears irregular patterns or clusters of small holes. While the phobia is not listed in scientific literature (yet), little holes, however, are a deep-rooted fear Kendall Jenners suffers from. In particular, she fears pancakes. (How can she tell that the pancake is ready to be flipped over in the fry-pan if she can’t look at the bubbling holes on top of the mixture?)
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia,” the 26-year-old posted on her app.
“Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes that are in weird patterns. Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb or lotus heads (the worst!). It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can’t even look at little holes – it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???”
Whats causes anxiety?
People with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).
These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.
Examples of anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), specific phobias and separation anxiety disorder. You can have more than one anxiety disorder. Sometimes anxiety results from a medical condition that needs treatment.
What are the symptoms of anxiety?
Common anxiety signs and symptoms include:
- Feeling nervous, restless or tense
- Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom
- Having an increased heart rate
- Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation)
- Feeling weak or tired
- Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than
- the present worry
- Having trouble sleeping
- Experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) problems
- Having difficulty controlling worry
- Having the urge to avoid things that trigger anxiety
What is the 3 3 3 rule for anxiety?
Look around you and name three things you see. Then, name three sounds you hear. Finally, move three parts of your body — your ankle, fingers, or arm. Whenever you feel your brain going 100 miles per hour, this mental trick can help center your mind, bringing you back to the present moment, Chansky says.

Managing and Reducing Anxiety
there are steps you can take the moment when anxiety starts to take hold. Try these 4 expert-backed suggestions to relax your mind and help you regain control of your thoughts.
1. Stay in your time zone.
Anxiety is a future-oriented state of mind. So instead of worrying about what’s going to happen, “reel yourself back to the present,” says Tamar Chansky, Ph.D., a psychologist and author of Freeing Yourself from Anxiety. Ask yourself: What’s happening right now? Am I safe? Is there something I need to do right now? If not, make an “appointment” to check in with yourself later in the day to revisit your worries so those distant scenarios don’t throw you off track, she says.
2. Relabel what’s happening.
Panic attacks can often make you feel like you’re dying or having a heart attack. Remind yourself: “I’m having a panic attack, but it’s harmless, it’s temporary, and there’s nothing I need to do,” Chansky says. Plus, keep in mind it really is the opposite of a sign of impending death — your body is activating its fight-or-flight response, the system that’s going to keep you alive, she says.
3. Fact-check your thoughts.
People with anxiety often fixate on worst-case scenarios, Chansky says. To combat these worries, think about how realistic they are. Say you’re nervous about a big presentation at work. Rather than think, “I’m going to bomb,” for example, say, “I’m nervous, but I’m prepared. Some things will go well, and some may not,” she suggests. Getting into a pattern of rethinking your fears helps train your brain to come up with a rational way to deal with your anxious thoughts.
4. Breathe in and out.
Deep breathing helps you calm down. While you may have heard about specific breathing exercises, you don’t need to worry about counting out a certain number of breaths, Chansky says. Instead just focus on evenly inhaling and exhaling. This will help slow down and re-center your mind, she says.
