Here, you will not find any quick tips and tricks on how to live a fabulous life free of suffering or fear or confusion.

The approach I outline here goes against most of the popular ways to tackle depression, anxiety or general malaise. But it is an approach that allowed me to dig deep into my own authenticity, be honest with myself and start to make real, lasting changes in my life.

    Here’s a book that goes the promoters of Tough Love one better. I can think of many who should learn the value (and values), the author offers.. Simeon Lindstrom, like other philosophers of this post-Industrial Age, gives advice meant for anyone who’s feeling crowded by the world and people in it — which is just about everyone. Find your self-conserving and center and read this book. It’ll do your soul some good. Try some of the suggestions and see what happens. And though you may not try all of these suggestions, you’ll resonate with what Lindstrom is offering. And what is that? A license to consider authenticity: saying more truth, and less ‘conventional wisdom.’ Now, of course, since this is NOT a self-help book with handy hints to quickie success through lies agreed upon, you’ll make fewer friends — but one of those friends will be your inner self. If applied with civility and taste, these suggestions (not taken too far, too fast, could enrich your life.

    What a treat!

    I noticed that this is a collection of multiple books by this author, and nearly all of them are right up my alley. Such a steal!

    I really can’t speak highly enough of Lindstrom’s books. They’re all very down to earth, actionable, and filled with life wisdom. So many golden nuggets in this collection, I can’t even begin to put them down here. But I can say this – they all spoke to me on a very deep, personal level and I feel almost compelled to make some real changes in my life. This book helped me get off to a good start.

    Yes, life is tough sometimes, but so are we. And so are you.

    The author says: Here, you will NOT find any quick tips and tricks on how to live a fabulous life free of suffering or fear or confusion.

    And he’s right! He uses an unique way to tackle depression, anxiety and malaise. It showed me how to dig deep into my own authenticity. It was true, heartfelt, and genuine. It made me look at myself and accept it.

    There’s even 10 bonus books! What a steal! I’m so glad I purchased this. It’s a gem!

    Excellent contribution of self-help and for psychotherapists., April 24, 2017
    By 

    Sometimes we are so disconnected from nature living in concrete cities, surrounded by artificial artifacts that we forget that we are part of it and that our character, brain and biology are closely related and are the product of evolution. So that we share with other species an instinct for survival, but it has not been programmed for modern civilized life, then this mechanism makes many misperceptions of what can be possible threats, which keeps us in constant anxiety, fear, concern and stress.
    The author describes in a very clear way how it works, what triggers and what habits feed this way of survival that she names the Monkey mind, since this component of our brain “It just gets a little wild and overreactive sometimes, like a monkey” . So when this hypervigilant mechanism is activated no matter how intelligent you are all your perception is distorted by fear and it sequesters our mind.
    One of the explanations that shed more light to understand many of my reactions, including my emotional motives in decision making, is what is referred to as the monkey mid-set: Intolerance of uncertainty, Perfectionism and Over-responsibility. It is surprising that we continue to think that we are rational beings when everything really revolves around emotional motivations, feeling safe, feeling accepted and part of a tribe, not making mistakes not to be judged negatively, etc. Rationality implies our ability to justify those emotional motivations; Plan and have future strategies to anticipate emotional conflicts.
    This simple script is programmed to drive survival at all costs. It works exceedingly well for this purpose, but it leaves us feeling stress and unpleasantness much of the time. And we strive a bit much to make decisions, to make the right choices, to control all the steps to follow, overplan things, we spend a lot of time worried, wanting to make others happy. From this monkey mindset many problems arise that fill us with anxiety and fear, affect our self-esteem, our concentration to achieve goals, overworking, depression, addiction, obsessive compulsive tendencies, among others.
    To live more relaxed, enjoy the moment, raise our self esteem, live purposefully, reach our goals and manage our monkey mind Jennifer Shannon provides us with the “Expansion Strategies”. She explains how to integrate this new mind-set and how to make this expansive thinking a life experience. The monkey mind will continue to be part of us, but these strategies teach us to choose between remaining stressed and upset, or taking it as an opportunity for expansion, and claiming to live the moment in a new way.
    My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book

    yet sad sketches) of ‘monkey mind’ or circling, April 9, 2017
    By 
    Kristine Fisher (Northeast Minneapolis, MN) –

    This review is from: Don’t Feed the Monkey Mind: How to Stop the Cycle of Anxiety, Fear, and Worry (Paperback)
    Don’t Feed the Monkey Mind: How to Stop the Cycle of Anxiety, Fear, and Worry by Jennifer Shannon is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-March.

    While keeping her own anxiety and panic attacks under control, Shannon has treated others with fear, worry, and anxiety as a therapist for the past twenty years. She links it to the idea (and utterly cute, yet sad sketches) of ‘monkey mind’ or circling, seemingly ever-present thoughts of vile premonition, non-perfection, general threat, and concerns over personal & interpersonal safety. Only though reactivity, counteracting and challenging anxiety as it comes, and strategically keeping yourself busy, occupied, and motivated can one really quiet the monkey mind; overall, this book had a very direct way of speaking to me (and had me mentally yelling out “Truth!” in response to some of its statements) and I took so much relief and hope from it, too.
