Most of what people care about can be considered a skill. For example, well-being is a skill; not suffering is a skill; noticing and regulating your emotions is a skill.
Start to practice the skill of mindfulness, which is learning to notice the nature of your experience without reacting. For example, say you fear public speaking, and the default position is to have anxiety and worry in advance about that experience. So you talk to yourself about these concerns and think you have no alternatives.
Mindfulness is a way just to feel your anxiety and be indifferent to it.
Anxiety feels very similar to excitement. You feel these tingles. But the difference is the story you tell yourself. For example, you experience these feelings as excitement on a rollercoaster, but when you have an interview or are about to walk out on stage, you may feel it's unbearable.
In these situations, just stepping back and realising the power of framing will help the physiology to dissipate.
Depression will tend to produce depressive thoughts, and the depressive thoughts will tend to feed back on the state.
People may lose their commitment to doing everything that is good to do. You may have to push yourself to exercise and socialise and do things that you may not want to do. You feel kind of stuck. But that is the story you are thinking and telling yourself.
You can reframe this continually and tell yourself a better story. You can change the code you're running.
Use gratitude. For example, when you're on your way to a job you don't like, and you're frustrated, you can think of all the negative things that could happen to you, and if you could just return to this moment, you would be thankful.
Nothing about your reality change, but reframing how you think can let light in.
Eventually, we want to find ourselves in the usual position to effortlessly cooperate with creative and happy strangers.
We want open conversation and have other people point out errors in our thinking and in the conversation we have with ourselves.
I love creating music, coffee, and film. Always strive for perfection.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
