We're raised to worry and aren't considered "grown up" until we perfect the art. Teenagers are told: "you'd better start worrying about your future". If your worries aren't at least as frequent as your bowel movements, you're seen as irresponsible, childish, aimless. That's a "responsible adult" game rule. To the extent that worrying is learned/conditioned behaviour, it can be undone.
Centuries-old cultural conditioning has given us a nasty neurosis: the belief that happiness must be "earned". Laid on top of the first neurosis is the idea that spending money will make you happy. So: we never stop working, we never stop spending money, we're never really happy – ideal conditions, coincidentally, for a certain type of slave economy.

Relaxation Techniques for Stress Relief: Finding the Relaxation Exercises that Work for You. The relaxation response: Bringing your nervous system back into balance Stress is necessary for life.
You need stress for creativity, learning, and your very survival. Stress is only harmful when it becomes overwhelming and interrupts the healthy state of equilibrium that your nervous system needs to remain in balance. Unfortunately, overwhelming stress has become an increasingly common characteristic of contemporary life. When stressors throw your nervous system out of balance, relaxation techniques can bring it back into a balanced state by producing the relaxation response, a state of deep calmness that is the polar opposite of the stress response.
How to Stop Worrying: Self-Help for Anxiety Relief. Why is it so hard to stop worrying?
Constant worrying takes a heavy toll. It keeps you up at night and makes you tense and edgy during the day. You hate feeling like a nervous wreck. So why is it so difficult to stop worrying? For most chronic worriers, the anxious thoughts are fueled by the beliefs—both negative and positive—they hold about worrying. On the negative side, you may believe that your constant worrying is harmful, that it’s going to drive you crazy or affect your physical health. On the positive side, you may believe that your worrying helps you avoid bad things, prevents problems, prepares you for the worst, or leads to solutions. Negative beliefs, or worrying about worrying, add to your anxiety and keep worry going. Amanda Jane Jones: My Better Half.
I've only met Naomi and Andy Martin once in my lifetime.
It was Halloween, 2008. Cree was dressed as an accountant and I was his frumpy secretary (giant glasses, a dress with a doily collar and a gallon of hairspray). We were attending a late night showing of Vertigo and ran into them as we were leaving the theater. I was so self-conscious about my attire, that's honestly all I remember....well that and the fact that I thought they were both pretty rad.
Cree and Naomi were long time friends from school, so I've had the pleasure of getting to know Naomi through her oh so funny/sweet blog and g-mail. Please scroll down below to learn more about them, their music, and their life in Philadelphia, and be sure to follow the links! Thank you Naomi and Andy for being a part of My Better Half! ANDY1. We're a good team. Kuroshio Sea - 2nd largest aquarium tank in the world - (song is Please dont go by Barcelo...
