A book I would like to recommend - ""Atomic habits". I've said it multiple times and will not stop repeating it - habits are the easy way into whatever healthier life you might imagine. The habits that have lead you into whatever health problems you have can be replaced by healthier habits, and this book teaches you one of the ways to do it. Habits are easy, habits are effortless - nothing that is habit is difficult, be it exercise, eating, paying attention, not paying attention, choosing - whatever. Once you stop feeding the wrong habits, and start feeding and growing the new ones, you'll be on your way to a better you. Good reading.

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.
