Kelly McGonigal (Stanford) author of the “willpower Instinct” mentions a few useful exercises many of us can apply to good effect. In particular, I’d like to point to two ideas for your consideration: 1. Using a bit of mindfulness meditation (Surf the Urge) to exercise our powers of “being present”, 2. Using the writing exercise of “Defensive Pessimism” to circumvent future failure.

Slides from the presentation:

Our meeting question board collects the ideas, questions, issues, and concerns people have and want to explore with the group. While we make an effort to address everyone’s issues in a 2hr meeting we can’t always get to everything. (Click on image to view larger)

The same things that are useful for preparing the adolescent mind for the huge task of learning are good for helping the adult mind cope with the complexity of day-to-day living. (Which is of course all about learning)

Ruby’s family generously requested the donations in her honor be made to DBSA Seattle. We are honored. Our journeys are unique. None of us fully understands the obstacles and pains of another, but no one need travel the road alone. Unfortunately, we’re unable to thank every donor individually, but want you to know we’re grateful you are providing help and hope for all who travel with us.  (Ruby’s obituary)
