Monika KuzminskaitėHealth psychologist, with special love for food and eating matters
I am a health psychologist, all things mind, mindfulness, emotions, behavior, stress, planning, anything that goes in the head, really - all are absolutely thrilling to me. My aim is to teach people to help themselves by better understanding their own mind. So here it is :)
About me
Eating is so much more about mind than digestion. It is about what we know, how we make choices and decisions, our attitidues, problem solving and planning abilities, social influence, habits, memories, goals, motivation. And yes, also about hormones, neurotransmitters, microbiome and other wonderful things. And all of that happens before you take every bite or sip. Lithuanian or English.

How does your personality affect your investment decisions? Oh, you thought that these are rational decisions and they have nothing in common with your individual traits? So here is a seed of doubt for you. The research is done in Pakistan, among students, but printed in Europe - here I invite to consider whether it may differ from your cultural environment and whether they may be significant - but doubt is doubt, and now you will think about it anyway :) - People with prominent traits of extraversion, agreeableness and conscientiousness when making investment decisions, tend to choose short term financial goals and objectives (like "will get some profit in a week") - when looking at the results it seems that strong traits of neuroticism and openness to experience may even be barriers to decision - People with prominent extraversion and conscientiousness traits only tend to prefer long term financial goals and objectives (like "will invest in a house") Extraversion and conscientiousness are the important traits in both cases, and instinctively I'd like to remove them from equation - on the other hand, people with low values of these traits might not get involved in the investment decisions altogether. But agreeableness looks like a more important trait for short term investment (something like investment into good relationships) while longer term plans probably need more focus on the person himself or herself. Probably like this :) My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, teach and provide psychological counselling. Book my talk to know more!

Do you know what "alexithymia" means? Can you imagine that you cannot understand and express whether you feel happy or sad, whether you are depressed, or perhaps not at all, maybe you are afraid, or anxious? This is the confusion that person with alexithymia experiences. Such people also have a difficult time understanding what emotions other people feel as well. Lack of this capability also makes it very difficult to create close and supportive relationships. This is how you might feel if tžyou had alexithymia: - you have no clue how you are feeling. WHen you are asked "how do you feel", you just draw a blank - usually you can only distinguish between feeling "good" or "bad" - you can explain your actions logically, but cannot relate them to emotions serving as motivation or energy source - you are not sure of your needs or desires - sometimes you experience unexpected physical symptoms like racing heartbeat, difficulty breathing, pains and aches - but you cannot explain their origin - you do not understand where all of your drive or motivation has disappeared, you often procrastinate and do not find joy in any leisure activity - sometimes you feel like you are a distant observer of your life, not being able to control many things. Just getting through the day seems to be a tedious task. Alexithymia is a diagnosed disorder by itself, or may accompany other disorders, such as eating disorders. Alexithymia may develop because of genetic reasons, brain damage also as reaction to some somatic illnesses. Alexithymia treatment is first of all related to treating primary illness that is causing it. Education about what are the emotions, what are their types, relying on behavioral therapy and introspection, learning to relate thoughts and emotions. A personal therapy is also very helpful. Getting involved in the activities that usually provoke emotional response, such as watching and participating in various art forms, listening to music, dancing, reading emotional books, etc. Alexithymia is not something you cannot deal with. If you feel like you are experiencing similar symptoms, you are very welcome to contact me for a counselling session - or another psychologist or therapist that you like :) My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, teach and provide psychological counselling. Book my talk to know more!

I quit social media.
There are two types of people on social media- the ones who make content and the ones who consume it. I knew that I spent more time consuming content rather than creating it, so decided to freeze my accounts for 6 months and spend that time creating. It was difficult to quit, but it feels damn good
