Philosophy: an art of living

Provided by Cleveland Philosophic Advisor As this is my first guest post for Pointless Overthinking, it seemed appropriate to talk about philosophy as a way of living. It’s such an interesting idea, and although it differs from how one (usually) hears philosophy discussed today, I’ve noticed the idea (1) in the ancient period of Western... Continue Reading →

Holding a grudge? – Reblog

“When you stay upset on someone, you give your emotional control to that person every time you think about her. You’re allowing that person to control your emotions from a distance. By not forgiving her, you’re allowing that person to control your emotional life as if she would be with you in that moment and... Continue Reading →

The “curse” of being wrong

This is something most people want to avoid. This is basically why so many awesome ideas die. People cannot stand the fact they might be wrong. They just don’t, especially when they strongly believe in a certain idea. This is related to the fact that an idea or an opinion is strongly connected to the... Continue Reading →

Healthier through breathing

Are you familiar with Wim Hof’s method of staying healthy? If you are, you know what I’m talking about. If not, this is going to be interesting. Honestly, I had little information about Wim Hof, but I knew he is a strong healthy individual. Today I came across a video talking about his breathing technique,... Continue Reading →

Can we beat homeostasis? – Reblog

This question has been raised by Natalie and I found it to be a very interesting topic to think about. I think about homeostasis just as I think about comfort zone (even though it’s a biological thing like maintaining the temperature, the level of each hormone released, the blood pressure and so on). Here is a definition... Continue Reading →

Life: Stories and Adventures

There is such a big difference between our lives and the lives other people live. This happens not because we live different lives, but because we live our life from a first person’s perspective, whilst everybody else’s life is seen from a third person’s perspective. We see and perceive other lives through stories and adventures,... Continue Reading →

Motivation through other people – Reblog

I listened to this podcast today where Tom Bilyeu talked with Ed Mylett about some interesting ideas. One of the things that hit me hard was the story about the time Ed Mylett went to the doctor. He said that this doctor had a different approach in addressing the health issues Ed had. Instead of prescribing some meds and getting... Continue Reading →

The Art of Communication

This seems to be a never-ending topic, and no wonder. We “communicate” daily, or at least, that’s what we think we do. But do we really? Lately, I got even more obsessed about the way we communicate (I didn’t think it was possible) and obviously, I started with observing the way I communicate. The main... Continue Reading →

How hopeful is Hope?

I know this is not my best title, but it does the job! So… how hopeful is Hope? No, Hope is not a person, it’s a feeling. The feeling that things will be great someday. Here’s the general opinion about hope: “Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of... Continue Reading →

The Emotional Fingerprint

Have you ever noticed that when you are “possessed” by a particular emotion, your mind reminds you of past situations when you had that same emotion? Our emotions rule and rock our world.  They are so powerful that they can control the way we think in those moments. That’s exactly way it is said that... Continue Reading →

A great technique to relax – Reblog

When we’re relaxed, our general state is more positive (have you ever seen a relaxed grumpy person?) and we’re also more open to new ideas and suggestions and that’s when changes can happen. I know there are times when we can get easily relaxed, but there are also times when it seems impossible. This motivated... Continue Reading →

Ancient Wisdom – Reblog

Sometime these days I came across some ancient wise words:    “Plant a thought and you’ll pick an action;    Plant an action and you’ll pick a habit;    Plant a habit and you’ll pick a character;    Plant a character and you’ll pick a destiny.” – Random Wise Ancient Dude or Dudette This is exactly...

As long as we’re thinking… – Reblog

We all have thoughts, right? Good thoughts, bad thoughts, crazy thoughts, kinky thoughts, sh*tty thoughts and so on. So as long as we’re all thinking, why wouldn’t we do it thinking about great stuff? It seems that we’re becoming what we’re thinking about most of the time. That’s why our surroundings are so important… whatever... Continue Reading →

Empathic Cross Wires During A Manic State

Provided by Scherezade Ozwulo from Scherezade’s Labyrinth *trigger warning: mental health will be discussed not as judgment against the sufferer but as observation of the caretaker* Last night was rough. Really rough; so rough in fact that I still feel it the next day as I’m writing this post. Actually, last night as I was enduring, I was... Continue Reading →

Biological insights about Stress – Reblog

Most of us encounter stressful situations daily and we all know how this makes us think and feel, but what are the biological implications? What is stress from a biological point of view?    “Living in stress is like living in survival mode – they’re one and the same thing. A stressful situation is one in which the... Continue Reading →
