Early Advertorial - The Relaxed Wife

Once upon a time there were rules for corporations that tried to promote their products. They had to be crafty on what they could and couldn't say. The year is 1957 and this is the complete short film, The Relaxed Wife."

Limited budget does not necessarily mean low quality. This is a promotional film from (at the time) Charles Pfzier & Company.



This little gem will keep your attention. The actor that portrays the husband has a wonderful expressive face that will leave no doubt as to what he is thinking. The film gives tips on how to relax with a brief moment mentioning the product in question, Atarax.

It is a reflection of the time. Separate beds, mind over matter and, yeah, separate beds.

For those of you that are excessively young or deprived of age here is the deal on the beds. There was The Motion Picture Production Code aka Hays Code that did not allow for any implication of sexuality or sexual behavior. Even if the characters in the movie were completely married.

The movie code required that men sleep in one bed and woman in the other.

Really.

You can check out this NPR report on some of the aspects of the code.

You never know what you will find on the anxiety road.

Episode 000 The Quick Version


Welcome to the Anxiety Road Podcast; the involuntary journey seeking treatment options and resources for people that have anxiety and panic attacks. This podcast is treatment agnostic.

My name is Gena Haskett.

I know who you are. You want this thing fixed and have a limit on how much BS you can take. Ok,

Here goes the speed version:

An anxiety or a panic attack is a mental health condition that has physical symptoms and behaviors. It has frequency, it is disruptive and the condition can cause you to change your life.

At this time you have four treatment options;
  • Medical and Pharmaceuticals
  • Behavioral Health
  • Relaxation and Meditation Skills
  • Technology which includes apps, software and now hardware devices.
There is treatment. Your challenge is that this isn’t a quick fix. You might need to try one or more treatment options that fit your needs.

This is the basics. There is more; a lot more to know but you don’t have time. So I would suggest that you visit the Anxiety and Depression Association web site at www.adaa.org to get more information.

If the devil is in the detail then I think you should at least listen to the next episode. But hey, you got things to do so I’ll let you go.
