Overview


Do you find yourself ruminating about things you can't control? Worrying about those yet-to-complete goals and projects? What about just feeling like you're not the person you want to be?

People who worry and ruminate find it difficult to stop anxiously anticipating future events and regretting or rethinking past actions. Left unchecked, this tendency can lead to mental health problems such as depression and generalized anxiety disorder. The Mindful Path Through Worry and Rumination offers powerful mindfulness strategies derived from Buddhist spiritual practices and proven psychological techniques to help you stop overthinking what you can't control-the future and the past-and learn how to find contentment in the present moment.

Kumar integrates science, Buddhism, and therapeutic tools to create an insightful and useful guidebook for people stuck in rumination.
-Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Yale University

    Have not even reached the end of the book yet and I love it. So

    Have not even reached the end of the book yet and I love it. So insightful and eye opening to just how powerful the mind is and how easy it is to fall into your habits of rumination. I have recommended this book to friends and really just love it.

    Depression Part Two

    So like I said, don't ever let bullies get to you that bad. We're all made the way we are made, so who cares if one person is a little bigger or a little skinnier than the other? Who cares if one person is taller or short than the other? Who cares if one person is a different colour than the other? We're all the same, underneath. <p> How out divorce? Have your parents been divorced, or are going through one? Or how about one of your parents dying? Or currently dying? I have both situtations. My parents have been split up since I was eight years old. This last year we found out that my father's liver is failing. He's dying, that's for sure. We just don't know when he'll die. Maybe in a month or two, maybe in a year. But he doesn't have much longer left. And ny mother, she's not in good health at all. She has COPD. And her pancreas is all jacked up. With how horrible her pancreas is, she'll probably end up dead as well. Then I'll become an orphan. Those thoughts stress me out. So if anyone has one or both of those things going on, I completely understand how you might be upset. Keep your chin up. I know it's stressful, but don't think about it too much... <p> And what about drugs? I know some of you think drugs will help you out, help you through hard times. NEVER. It will never help. It'll just get you helplessly addicted, and then you'll have the stress of, 'I have to find money to pay for my drugs!' Type of deal. No. Just, no. And alcohol is a no-no too. It ruins your liver. Pills ruins your stomach, kidneys, and liver. <p> I know I sound off topic, but all of this ties into depression. One way or another. I'm sure I missed a few common problems, besides the ones I've listed, but that doesn't really matter. What matters is that you know how serious depression is, d that if you have it, to get help. I hope that y'all enjoyed reading these two posts. Even if I don't know you, know that I'm always thinking about you. You know how? Because I often winder and hope that every one of us are doing okay. That we're safe and sound..I love you l like brothers and sisters. Adios. Write something, if you'd like. Know that I've read it too, but I won't be able to reply. Goodbye you all. I hope all goes well in your lives. <p> ~HR
