[Quote No.55628] Need Area: Fun > General
"[A story - with a message about the power of optimism and positivity in life and work:] 'Get Out Of The Shade' - One afternoon, a young man walked into [Andrew] Carnegie's office to interview him about his success. Carnegie could have told the young man about his journey from poverty to riches or about his wild dealings with John Rockefeller. But instead, Carnegie talked about something else. His optimism. Carnegie said the most important thing in his life was his 'ability to shed trouble and to laugh through life.' He said that seeing life through a lens of positivity was worth more to him than millions of dollars. 'Young people should know that it can be cultivated,' Carnegie said. 'The mind, like the body, can be moved from the shade into sunshine.' And it makes good business sense, too. By not getting weighed down by the negative, Carnegie could keep his focus on the positive, bounce back from failures faster, and see opportunities where other people didn't know they existed." - Alex Banayan

[Quote No.55749] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Self-talk: in order to improve the way you talk to yourself, so it is more positive, supportive and rational - refer the value of skepticism and Rational Emotive Therapy - so you can be more productive, persistent and happy] You need to remember the 3 P's: Permanence, pervasiveness and whether it’s personal. Pessimists tell themselves that bad events: --- 1. Will last a long time, or forever. ('I'll never get this done.') ---2. Are universal. ('You can't trust any of those people.') ---3. Are their own fault. ('I'm terrible at this.') Optimists look at setbacks in the exact opposite way: ---1. Bad things are temporary. ('That happens occasionally but it's no big deal.') ---2. Bad things have a specific cause and aren't universal. ('When the weather is better that won't be a problem.') ---3. It's not their fault. ('I'm good at this but today wasn't my lucky day.') When talking to yourself, be an optimist, not a pessimist. [Martin E.P. Seligman in his book, 'Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life' states 'The defining characteristic of pessimists is that they tend to believe bad events will last a long time, will undermine everything they do, and are their own fault. The optimists, who are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world, think about misfortune in the opposite way. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback, that its causes are confined to this one case. The optimists believe defeat is not their fault: Circumstances, bad luck, or other people brought it about. Such people are unfazed by defeat. Confronted by a bad situation, they perceive it as a challenge and try harder.'] ... And when good things happen, the situation reverses: --Pessimists think good things will be short-lived, are rare and random. --Optimists think good things will last forever, are universal and of their own doing. What's the ultimate result of this? Pessimists often quit. Life feels futile. And when life feels futile, you stop trying and frequently get depressed. [The solution is to change the way they think and so change their life!!]" - Eric Barker

[Quote No.55860] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Rest, respite, renewal and recreation:] Men seek retreats for themselves, houses in the country, sea-shores, and mountains; and thou too art wont to desire such things very much. But this is altogether a mark of the most common sort of men, for it is in thy power whenever thou shalt choose to retire into thyself. For nowhere either with more quiet or more freedom from trouble does a man retire than into his own soul, particularly when he has within him such thoughts that by looking into them he is immediately in perfect tranquility; and I affirm that tranquility is nothing else than the good ordering of the mind [with wise principles]. Constantly then give to thyself this retreat, and renew thyself; and let thy principles be brief and fundamental, which, as soon as thou shalt recur to them, will be sufficient to cleanse the soul completely, and to send thee back free from all discontent with the things to which thou returnest." - Marcus Aurelius
(121 AD - 180 AD), Marcus Aurelius was Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers in history. This is a quote from his philosophical notes collected and published after his death as the book, 'The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius'.

[Quote No.55921] Need Area: Fun > General
"[The power of imaginative attention - of focus and distraction:] Don't Vent Your Anger: So you punch that pillow. Or yell and rant about the encounter to a friend. Not a good idea. Venting your anger doesn't reduce it. Venting intensifies emotion. Via 'Handbook of Emotion Regulation' [a book edited by James J. Gross, published 2013]: '...focusing on a negative emotion will likely intensify the experience of that emotion further and thus make down-regulation more difficult, leading to lower adjustment and well-being.' Sharing your feelings with others constructively is a good idea but 'getting it out' tends to snowball your anger. What does work? Distracting yourself. But why would distraction help? Because your brain has limited resources. Thinking about something else means you have less brainpower to dwell on the bad stuff: 'Research suggests it is because both cognitive tasks and emotional responses make use of the same limited mental resources (Baddeley, 2007; Siemer, 2005; Van Dillen and Koole, 2007)... That is, the resources that are used to perform a cognitive task are no longer available for emotional processes. Accordingly, people can rid themselves from unwanted feelings by engaging in a cognitive activity, such as doing math equations (Van Dillen and Koole, 2007), playing a game of Tetris ( Holmes, James, Coode-Bate, and Deeprose , 2008)...' [http://www.bakadesuyo.com/2012/04/can-more-thinking-be-the-solution-to-bad-feel/ ] You know that famous marshmallow test? [http://www.bakadesuyo.com/2013/12/ways-to-increase-willpower/ ] Experimenters put a kid alone in a room with a marshmallow. If the child can resist eating it, they get two marshmallows later. The kids who succeeded in waiting went on to achieve better grades and more success in life. (They also stayed out of jail.) Now this study has been covered a lot, but what they don't usually talk about is how the successful kids avoided temptation; how they reduced those powerful emotions screaming, 'EAT THE MARSHMALLOW NOW!!' They distracted themselves. Walter Mischel, who led the famous study, explains. Via 'The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control' [a book by Walter Mischel, published 2014]: 'Successful delayers created all sorts of ways to distract themselves and to cool the conflict and stress they were experiencing. They transformed the aversive waiting situation by inventing imaginative, fun distractions that took the struggle out of willpower: they composed little songs ('This is such a pretty day, hooray'; 'This is my home in Redwood City'), made funny and grotesque faces, picked their noses, cleaned their ear canals and toyed with what they discovered there, and created games with their hands and feet, playing their toes as if they were piano keys.' And this works with other 'hot' emotions too -- like anger." - Eric Barker

[Quote No.56595] Need Area: Fun > General
"Three Breathing Exercises:- ‘Practicing regular, mindful breathing can be calming and energizing and can even help with stress-related health problems ranging from panic attacks to digestive disorders.’ - Andrew Weil, M.D. Since breathing is something we can control and regulate, it is a useful tool for achieving a relaxed and clear state of mind. I recommend three breathing exercises to help relax and reduce stress: The Stimulating Breath, The 4-7-8 Breathing Exercise (also called the Relaxing Breath), and Breath Counting. Try each of these breathing teachniques and see how they affect your stress and anxiety levels. ===== Exercise 1: The Stimulating Breath (also called the Bellows Breath) The Stimulating Breath is adapted from yogic breathing techniques. Its aim is to raise vital energy and increase alertness. -----Inhale and exhale rapidly through your nose, keeping your mouth closed but relaxed. Your breaths in and out should be equal in duration, but as short as possible. This is a noisy breathing exercise. -----Try for three in-and-out breath cycles per second. This produces a quick movement of the diaphragm, suggesting a bellows. Breathe normally after each cycle. -----Do not do for more than 15 seconds on your first try. Each time you practice the Stimulating Breath, you can increase your time by five seconds or so, until you reach a full minute. If done properly, you may feel invigorated, comparable to the heightened awareness you feel after a good workout. You should feel the effort at the back of the neck, the diaphragm, the chest and the abdomen. Try this diaphragmatic breathing exercise the next time you need an energy boost and feel yourself reaching for a cup of coffee. =====Exercise 2: The 4-7-8 (or Relaxing Breath) Exercise This breathing exercise is utterly simple, takes almost no time, requires no equipment and can be done anywhere. Although you can do the exercise in any position, sit with your back straight while learning the exercise. Place the tip of your tongue against the ridge of tissue just behind your upper front teeth, and keep it there through the entire exercise. You will be exhaling through your mouth around your tongue; try pursing your lips slightly if this seems awkward. -----Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound. -----Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four. -----Hold your breath for a count of seven. -----Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound to a count of eight. -----This is one breath. Now inhale again and repeat the cycle three more times for a total of four breaths. Note that you always inhale quietly through your nose and exhale audibly through your mouth. The tip of your tongue stays in position the whole time. Exhalation takes twice as long as inhalation. The absolute time you spend on each phase is not important; the ratio of 4:7:8 is important. If you have trouble holding your breath, speed the exercise up but keep to the ratio of 4:7:8 for the three phases. With practice you can slow it all down and get used to inhaling and exhaling more and more deeply. This exercise is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. Unlike tranquilizing drugs, which are often effective when you first take them but then lose their power over time, this exercise is subtle when you first try it but gains in power with repetition and practice. Do it at least twice a day. You cannot do it too frequently. Do not do more than four breaths at one time for the first month of practice. Later, if you wish, you can extend it to eight breaths. If you feel a little lightheaded when you first breathe this way, do not be concerned; it will pass. Once you develop this technique by practicing it every day, it will be a very useful tool that you will always have with you. Use it whenever anything upsetting happens - before you react. Use it whenever you are aware of internal tension. Use it to help you fall asleep. This exercise cannot be recommended too highly. Everyone can benefit from it. =====Exercise 3: Breath Counting If you want to get a feel for this challenging work, try your hand at breath counting, a deceptively simple technique much used in Zen practice. Sit in a comfortable position with the spine straight and head inclined slightly forward. Gently close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Then let the breath come naturally without trying to influence it. Ideally it will be quiet and slow, but depth and rhythm may vary. -----To begin the exercise, count ‘one’ to yourself as you exhale. -----The next time you exhale, count ‘two,’ and so on up to ‘five.’ -----Then begin a new cycle, counting ‘one’ on the next exhalation. Never count higher than ‘five,’ and count only when you exhale. You will know your attention has wandered when you find yourself up to ‘eight,’ ‘12,’ even ‘19.’ Try to do 10 minutes of this form of meditation. [For other breathing exercise methods refer Lamaze Breathing and Transcendental Meditation.]" - Dr. Andrew Weil
American medical doctor, teacher, and author of holistic health. He is founder, professor, and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.

"[Smile and laugh: why?] The free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensifies it. On the other hand, the repression, as far as this is possible, of all outward signs softens our emotions... Even the simulation of an emotion tends to arouse it in our minds. [Refer the 'facial feedback' hypothesis, that holds that skeletal muscle feedback from facial expressions plays a causal role in regulating emotional experience and behaviour. It is an important part of several contemporary theories of emotion, and is consistent with the old adage 'fake it [an emotion] till you make [actually feel] it' and 'act it till it's a fact'.]" - Charles Darwin

"There are two ways of being happy — we may either diminish our wants or augment our means — either will do, the result is the same; and it is for each man to decide for himself, and do that which happens to be the easiest. If you are idle or sick or poor, however hard it may be to diminish your wants, it will be harder to augment your means. If you are active and prosperous, or young, or in good health, it may be easier for you to augment your means than to diminish your wants. But if you are wise, you will do both at the same time, young or old, rich or poor, sick or well; and if you are wise, you will do both in such a way as to augment the general happiness of society." - Benjamin Franklin

"Your happiness is determined by how you allocate your attention. What you attend to drives your behavior and it determines your happiness. Attention is the glue that holds your life together... The scarcity of attentional resources means that you must consider how you can make and facilitate better decisions about what to pay attention to and in what ways. If you are not as happy as you could be, then you must be misallocating your attention... So changing behavior and enhancing happiness is as much about withdrawing attention from the negative as it is about attending to the positive." - Paul Dolan

"There was a tale he had read once, long ago, as a small boy: the story of a traveler who had slipped down a cliff, with man-eating tigers above him and a lethal fall below him, who managed to stop his fall halfway down the side of the cliff, holding on for dear life. There was a clump of strawberries beside him, and certain death above him and below. What should he do? went the question. And the reply was, Eat the strawberries. The story had never made sense to him as a boy. It did now [as he recognised his own mortality]." - Neil Gaiman

[Quote No.57430] Need Area: Fun > General
"[Smile and laugh, etc:] Actions seems to follow feeling, but really actions and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not. [So as they say, 'act till it's a fact' and 'fake it till make it'.] Thus the sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if our cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully and to act and speak as if cheerfulness were already there." - William James

"[Smile and laugh, etc:] Put a BIG, broad, honest-to-God smile on your face; throw back your shoulders; take a good, deep breath; and sing a snatch of a song. If you can't sing whistle. If you can't whistle, hum. You will quickly discover what William James was talking about -- [namely, 'Actions seems to follow feeling, but really actions and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not.'] -- that it is physically impossible to remain blue or depressed while you are acting out the symptoms of being radiantly happy!" - Dale Carnegie
From his book, 'How to Stop Worrying and Start Living', p.56.

"[Pleasant Activity Therapy:] Write a list of simple things that give you pleasure... and do them at least a few times a week. Writing down the things that bring you a sense of pleasure and happiness, and reviewing your list on a regular basis, can help you remember to carve out the time to do those simple little things that reinforce your belief that life is indeed good." - Dr. Joseph Mercola
