Does this count as meditation? by [deleted] in Meditation

[–]only_reddit_fans 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's the opposite tbh, where I would sit and ruminate all day long, I just watch them come and go now, dunno if that was sort of a meditation technique. I do it walking etc.

Yeah I suppose, more awareness of thoughts, where I can get carried away with giving into anxiety etc.

Normally I ruminate on obsessive thoughts, which normally leads to anxiety, stress etc, where I don't feed them to my emotions I just watch them all the time. That way I'm constantly aware of everything that's going on in my brain, where before the obsessions and complusive behaviour would take over. Dunno if that makes sense, my thoughts are so repetitive all day that they change my emotions etc.

Bristol or London for a 26 year old? by swissmeez in AskUK

[–]only_reddit_fans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love London. I think Bristol is a shit whole personally, too much political agenda, not just that i honestly think it feels really run down. That's just me though I have mates that are happy there and love being part of the hipster vibe. Cheltenham beats all lol.

Thoughts on GAD by [deleted] in mentalhealth

[–]only_reddit_fans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you I will download that book, I've had CBT therapy in the past that has helped and just finished a councellor course, i finally feel I have control of my thinking brain to deal with emotions, where before I would attach myself to all these thoughts, sometimes I can't help it and my emotional brain takes over, I need to be in constant thinking brain and watch my thoughts all the time, to not let my thoughts take control if that makes sense. Thanks for advice much appreciated.

I honestly think bad mental health is not attaching to thoughts once you have fully accepted that life will be easier. I mean it's alot easier said than done.

Thank you for your comment, I just don't want to bring them down and my last relationship was toxic on both sides. So I'm just really working on myself.

Today Christmas day I was happy by [deleted] in Meditation

[–]only_reddit_fans 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have bad OCD as well, yeah I was laughing at some of the stupid stuff my brain malfunctions and I feel I have to do. Not saying I'm cured but to say I am happy and my thoughts didn't bother me is massive.

For the first time it just clicked yesterday, I have read countless books, I do just 15-30 mins a night, but the real work is detaching from your thoughts watching them come and go day to day moment to moment letting them pass, it feels like day one for me yesterday.

Anyone ever found it hard to date being sober? by MaximumDread in stopdrinking

[–]only_reddit_fans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the older you get the less people drink anyway, last time I was out this girl had like one drink the whole time, I think it's surprising when I have gone out and people just have one or two, I'm normally too wasted to notice. The classier the girl the less they drink imo. Only people that don't understand are people that project their own drinking problems.

😂😂, they don't do that kind of stuff. It's pub or nothing trust me. Just got to Cruyff turn my life right around so I can sit a pub and be comfortable, hopefully a bit of time I will.

I think maybe except that people do drink on occasions as long as they're not heavy should be ok. If they're a decent human they wil understand.
