Hello Dr.Fingerbutts!

You like reading? What are your favorite books?

I'm curious as to how much you feel like the whole Yoga/mindfulness thing helps you. My mother has been trying to get me into that.

Hi!

Right now I'm reading the robot series by Asimov. Some favorites are vonnegut, salinger, Douglas Adams, Philip dick, Ray bradberry. Lots of Sci Fi and fantasy.

I'm also reading The Antidote by Oliver burkeman. It seems good. It encourages a realist calm, which is what I've kind of grown to understand from meditation. I just really started it about 3 weeks ago, so I am still learning. It has helped already though. I was able to talk myself out of a panic attack yesterday - hurray me!

Well, while I recognize the names, I can't say I've ever read any of their works! You must be very well read. I think the only sci-fi I've ever really read was Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, which is also my favorite book.

I'm glad to hear mindfulness is working for you! Maybe I'll have to try it after all.
