The reason that I said to look for the first edition of the 'new mood therapy' is because I got the newer one and it is harder to read, but still has a lot of good information in it. So if you can't find the older one, try the other one. You can order it over internet. That is where I found the newer one. There is so much good information in it.
Once you start living in the now, life becomes so much easier. I use to spend so much time worrying about
things in the future that I could do nothing about
. It is such a waste of energy. Or I would remember something that happened in the past. I would get right in that mind set and be angry over nothing all over again. I guess that is the dirty tricks department of our minds. But as they say, there is no time like the present.
Sometimes when you are out of the present if you repeat in your mind, the word 'STOP' three times, it will bring you back.
Do you go to counseling? That often helps.
I am happy that you do yoga, that is so good for you. And I think that I mentioned meditation. You focus on your breathing and forget everything else. Relax your muscles also. That takes your mind off of all the heavy weight that is there.
My Grandmother use to clean when she had problems, 'work is the best medicine' she would say. That worked. There are a lot of little things (tricks) that you can do. But I think that the yoga will help you, I really do. Atleast it will help you while you are doing it and you can enjoy that period of time. Also thinking of things that you really enjoy can help. You aren't actually living in the moment but your mind will be in a good place.
Take care, keep posting.
luv and hugs, Karen...
