What's in Your Mind? Your questions
At the Back of My Mind - Next month's newsletter


What? Already the end of 2008? Where did it go? With this type of comments, I show my age! Remember how slowly our first 10 years of existence went by, when we couldn't wait to grow old! My parents used to say that, when I would reach their age, it would go faster. Darn, they were right!

If you find your life stressful, you will get some ideas in this issue. I hope the year 2009 will be a good one for you. I wish you all the best - and more - to you and yours!

As always,, don't hesitate to drop me a line about this newsletter or the previous ones. Back issues can be found here.

Way of the Mind's Article: Stress causes - Is your life stressful?
Stress causes vary depending on the individual. However, some events are definitely stressful to all of us!
In 1967, T. H. Holmes and R. H. Rahe developed a test by having a large number of volunteers rate the effect of various stressful events in their life. The scale I have produced is adapted from their work and modernized.
Test your Stress
Identify the stressful events that have taken place in your life in the last 12 months and add up the points. Then evaluate your susceptibility to illness and mental health problems by checking your results in the scoring section. You will find the scale and the scoring section if you read the rest of this article here.

Mind Boggling
How much does a human brain think? 70,000 is the number of thoughts that it is estimated the human brain produces on an average day. Now, whether those thoughts are productive or not is another question!

Subconscious Mind Featured Product
Putting Stress to Rest - A Hypnosis Session on Stress Release
If a bit of stress can actually be beneficial, because it focuses your attention, extreme stress can bring many health problems. However, how often do you consciously take time to relax? Any type of hypnosis is naturally conducive to relaxation, but this specific session is just like a mental spa, allowing you to instantly dissolve the stress you feel and dive into a world of peace and serenity. Don't wait any longer, listen and... relax! All it takes is 27 minutes of easy listening per day.

Mind Games
Robert and David played several golf matches against each other in a week. They played for a pizza at each match, but no pizzas were purchased until the end of the week. If at any time Robert and David had the same number of wins, those pizzas were cancelled. Robert won four matches (but no pizzas), and David won three pizzas. How many rounds of golf were played?

You will find the solution in the next issue of "With You in Mind" but you still have one month to think about it!
