I have hyper-critical relatives. My mom once reacted to the news that I hadn't gotten a super cool reach job by saying "Oh. Was it your hair?" At one point in my life, I would use their voices and the things they had said or *might possibly say* to drown out my own "Hey, it's no problem..." voice, which wasn't helpful and often meant that I was missing out on being about to react and reframe the problem in front of me. What I did was recognize at a neutral moment that these voices weren't helpful, that they were possibly harmful and that they weren't actually my reactions. I also traced back why I was upset the last few times minor things had set off those voices and talked to myself about how I could have reacted in ways that would have been more productive. Unstuck is a really good app for this stuff. Flagged Spend way less time with these people.

The Surprising Power of an Emotional ‘Memory Palace’ Can a ‘memory palace’ help you recall happier times, even when life is hard? “I’m going to my happy place!” Saying this in moments of stress has become a rather tired joke. And the joke conceals the fact that having a so-called ‘happy place’, or even several happy places can help boost mood when times are hard. However, the problem with thinking back to happy moments from the past is that it’s hard if you’re not in the habit. Indeed people experiencing depression find it particularly difficult. Why Having More Time Being Alone Makes You A Greater Person “The best thinking has been done in solitude.” – Thomas Edison When was the last time you were alone? Not alone by today’s standards (Facebook and Twitter within arms reach, friends constantly buzzing your phone), but truly by yourself, with no outside influences providing data or information to your brain. Can you think of that time? If you’re like most people, it might take you more than a few seconds.

Symptoms & Treatment What is Depression? Clinical depression goes by many names, such as “the blues,” biological depression, and major depression. But all of these names refer to the same thing: feeling sad and depressed for weeks or months on end — not just a passing blue mood of a day or two. This feeling is most often accompanied by a sense of hopelessness, a lack of energy (or feeling “weighed down”), and taking little or no pleasure in things that once gave a person joy in the past. Depression symptoms take many forms, and no two people’s experiences are exactly alike. A person who’s suffering from this disorder may not seem sad to others.

Want a Simple Way To Calm Yourself? Over the weekend, I read David Rock’s very interesting book, . One strategy particularly struck me: . Note, however, that thinking or talking at length about the emotional state tends to intensify it — while simply observing and labeling it helps to quell it. I do this myself, instinctively. I find myself thinking, “I’m overwhelmed” or “I’m frazzled” or “I’m feeling defensive” — and it’s odd how calming it is. Just putting a label on a feeling helps me to master it.
