A book that I have read in English and will read again in Lithuanian. And please don't ask to pronounce the last name of this wonderful Hungarian researcher and author. The book wonderfully describes a phenomenon that we call "letting go", "diving right in" or "in the zone". We call it many things, perhaps many things it also is. The Flow is "optimal experience" - a state of consciousness, an experience that is genuinely satisfying. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. The Flow is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one's sense of time. Highly recommended.

Thanks Monika for Sharing, I have already heard about this book. Does the author explain how to get to that mental state of “Flow” ?

Words can hurt, maybe even more than fists. Does that happen to you? Do people keep things from you on purpose, do not share their thoughts and feelings, dismiss and counter your memories, blame you for the things you cannot control, calling you names or using hurtful labels? Well, that is verbal psychological abuse, a common component of romantic relationships, friendships and parent-child relationships. None ever deserves to be treated like that, and such behavior should always be objected. First instinct is to always argue with the abuser and to prove him or her wrong. And that would be the right instinct if it was a rational conversation, which is never that with an abuser. An effective strategy is to ignore the content of any hurtful phrase and calmly call out the abuser. Do not get into argument. If this calm statement does not work - leave the situation, limit the encounters with the abuser, or consider ending the relationship (which might be difficult, if you depend on the abuser - but still worth considering).

Documentary I would like to recommend: "Heal" (available on Netflix). I will start with the statement that I am always quite careful with non-scientific methods as well as paranormal things, and value most of them as interesting from cultural perspective and not something to rely on. Nevertheless, most of this documentary is about the biopsychosocial model, about how mind and body are related, how it is important to not give up and use every measure in order to achieve good and balanced health for every one. https://www.netflix.com/lt/title/80220013 #spoonfulofreason #psychology #health #whattowatch

Book I would like to recommend - Arnhild Lauveng "A Road Back from Schizophrenia" (even though I like the original name better - "Before the sunrise I would turn into the lion"). One of those rare occasions when through the words of a very well versed author one can glimpse into a very essence schizophrenia. And even more importantly - into the real example of resiliency, of how to not give up and learn to live even if the world is full of demons. If movie "Beautiful Mind" impressed you, so will this book. My name is Monika, I am psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, counsel and teach. #spoonfulofreason #bookrecommendations #psychology

I've red this book. The story felt very authentic and I learned a lot about what it's like for those with schizophrenia. It's a memorable and moving read.
