Voice from Down Under

It’s the last month of winter in Australia. We have been quite lucky with the weather, it’s sunny with temperature ranging from 18 to 24C during the day. I’ve heard it is a very hot summer in Europe this year. I haven’t been doing very well lately. I had a number of stressful events and ended up with TMJ syndrome. It has been there for nearly a month. Apparently it is quite common and affects about 20-30% of population, mostly females. I don’t grind my teeth, but I have been clenching my teeth for years. I must have been clenching too much due to extra stress levels.

My dentist told me to wear a splint at night which is being made at the moment. Occasional Valium is needed to relax the muscles. I have also been getting trigger point massage and listening to special hypnosis tape from www.hypnosisdownloads.com. I also have a twitch in my right eye.

On a positive note I lost 2,4 kg as I can only eat soft food and don’t have much of an appetite.

I’ll keep you informed of my progress.

I thought I can benefit from some positive thinking and after a search on Amazon I found a book by Elizabeth O’Brien “A Positive You“. I went through a few books on positive thinking and I liked this one the best.

What books on positive thinking do you recommend?

THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL GOOD

You cannot  impose happiness on yourself. You cannot become happy just by following all the rules prescribed in self-development books, however there are things one can do to improve their qualify of life and therefore their levels of satisfaction.

Recently Martin Seligman visited Australia and I was lucky to attend his lecture at Sydney Opera House. Did you read his books? You can check out his website where he lists things you can do to improve your levels of happiness/life satisfaction.

I have decided to write down a list of things that make me feel good ( no huge discoveries here, perhaps, but hopefully  you will find something useful).

Words for Susan Jeffers

Years ago I read “Feel the fear and do it anyway” by Susan Jeffers. This is a ground-breaking book by well known American author. In my book “Healing my anxiety” I describe how this book and Susan’s relaxation tracks helped me when my anxiety was at it’s worst. I am a subscriber to Susan’s newsletter. A short while ago I was shocked to learn that Susan passed away from rare form of cancer. On YouTube I watched an interview with her recorded in July 2012  – no one would have guessed she was ill. I guess she was a private person and didn’t want to publicize it. RIP Susan, you are missed greatly!!
