A doctoral thesis from Swedish university proves, once again, that cognitive behavioral therapy is effective in reducing stress related burnout and adjustment. Stress is a reason behind a number of body illnesses. It affects negatively daily activities for every one and creates societal costs due to decreased productivity and sick days. In the research part of this thesis participants were invited into a brief 12 week long program with weekly contact, accounting for about 10 minutes of personal contact between participant and therapist. Even such apparently brief intervention was successful in significantly reducing stress symptoms immediately after the program, also at 6 and 12 month follow-ups after the program was concluded. My bit: cognitive behavioral program content usually is this: some information about the theory, about anxiety, main methods for preventing stress and reducing stress that is already occurring, personal stress management plan, homework and chekup on how the homework went, and homework adjustments. Theory states that every one of us has spontaneously arising automatic thoughts, followed by the emotional reaction and followed by the specific behavior, based on this emotion. Analysis of automatic thoughts and changing them (gathering arguments through Socratic questioning as well as training to mindfully change the internal dialogue) helps to shift the emotional response as well as change the behavior that is not beneficial to your health and well-being.

Series that I would like to recommend - "Get Organized with The Home Edit" (https://www.netflix.com/lt/title/81094723). Clear and simple layout of the things that you have, liberating you from a number of daily discomforts, kind of speaks for itself. Tidy home decreases overall anxiety, tidying activity itself is a good way to relax, focus, find solutions to the problems. Order and activity of putting things in order is a very valuable activity, contributing to your psychological well-being. So if you needed a small nudge towards starting it - here you go :) To my ear it is a bit loud with all the happy squeals and fast talking, but besides that, the idea behind tidying and the system are excellent. Happy watching!

Research. Aerobic exercise (when you breathe faster and get warm, but still can carry on conversation) may significantly decrease symptoms of depression in young adults, more than mild stretching exercises. Research focused on cognitive control and reward mechanisms in the brain - which is assumed are impaired in major depression. Cognitive control mechanism is responsible for behavior modification while reaching for the goal and resistance to distractions. Reward mechanisms regulate positive emotions as response to the achieved goal and processing of information and emotions in case of loss.

A book that I would like to recommend. Mostly to help distinguish pseudoscientific inspirational books from the shelves labeled as psychology from the real scientific books. It is important to understand that single keyword does not define the value of the knowledge. From where I look, buddhism has succeeded better (and much earlier) to summarise all spiritual practices into the single and fluent totality. They knew long ago that mindful attention, focus on here and now, meditation as form of active rest are important to the proper balance of the body. We are discovering the same only during last decades. Sincerely, all of it is being confirmed as efficient methods. Perhaps, there is no need to reinvent the bicycle, especially if it has been working and improved for hundreds of years?
