Serenity and mental health

In general people are always in search for something bigger and better; the harder they strive to achieve those goals the more they learn that there are things that you need to sacrifice and for most people they aren’t ready and they can’t cope. When coping becomes a problem, stress and anxiety sets in. When there is no harmony in the mind and body, serenity leaves us and we start to feel different conflicting emotions leading to poor performance at work and bad inter-personal relationships.

For us to be productive we need to keep a balance within us but if we are always anxious, the body goes through different heights of feelings and it starts to upset the stomach resulting to acid reflux or irritable bowel movement. Some serious manifestations of anxiety are pulling of hair or severe hair fall, rashes breaks out as in psoriasis and other skin irritations. Others start to lose appetite and lose weight.

Although there are many known drugs that help make the symptoms of anxiety go away, it too has many known harmful side effects. And so the best way to combat feelings of anxiety and prevent mental stress and fatigue is to try to find activities that will help you to relax. Exercise and meditation is still the best remedy for people who are stressed and anxious. Exercise releases endorphins; the hormones that are responsible for making you feel good and happy.

Meditation on the other hand helps restore peace of mind. It relaxes the body and the mind and it restores balance. Often times it is our lifestyle that makes us anxious, we don’t allow ourselves time to rest and meditate, or to enjoy fun activities such as hanging-out with friends or reading a book or getting into a hobby that you are passionate about.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that when your mind and body are at war, serenity leaves you and your mind and body starts getting ill.

Anxiety and Heart Health

Long ago, anxiety used to be a helpful tool for coping with the highly-stressful environment that the early inhabitants on earth are experiencing. However, in these modern days anxiety has evolved into something that preludes the existence of several serious diseases such as heart and cardiovascular diseases.

Using activity to defeat both anxiety and heart disease

Doctors are convinced that regular exercise can help not only in keeping a healthy heart but also in alleviating the impact of anxiety. While there is a need to study anxiety deeper and further, there have been noticeable improvements in the anxiety state among sufferers when they are subjected to regular exercise. We all know that regular exercise can help the heart to become stronger.

Other forms of anxiety alleviation

Anxiety disorders often come with a high degree of uncertainty and when worries stick in the mind it trickles the effects to the heart. This would also interfere with the ability of the patient that has been suffering from heart disease to follow advice towards recovery. That is why aside from exercise, sticking to diet that are rich in nutrients and anti-oxidants are important in anxiety alleviation. Experts recommend that anxiety sufferers should stick with foods that are rich in tryptophan which is a natural ingredient that is used by the body to create feel-good chemicals that often lower anxiety levels.

Future of anxiety and heart health research

As mentioned earlier we have yet still to get into the bottom of heart health’s real link with anxiety. Social phobia and panic attacks can become serious complications that need to be considered especially when taking care of heart health. As we await a concrete study on the effects of anxiety to heart health it is best to use various therapies and techniques that are available to treat the heart and anxiety at the same time.

A careful look at the anxiety disorders can give you a very worried look at the state of the heart. Both axiety and heart disease can contribute to the emergence of an unhealthy body and can be an obstacle towards total recovery.

Types of Anxiety Caused by Social Media

For most of human history we are not quite sure if there have been instances to talk to a person in real-time even without face-to-face interaction. Until the phone, the instant messaging and social media was invented, humans have to wait for a while for the mail to arrive or even days for the telegram to arrive. Sadly we become new species with new kind of worries all because of our extended use of the vast cyberspace.

Anxiety due to accidental sending

You have this nasty email and you want your co-worker to see it. But instead of hitting the send button you hit the send to all. Yikes! Now everyone that are not supposed to see the nasty email including your boss will get to see it. And the panic attacks begin in a blink of an eye. It is so convenient to tell the whole world or at least the distribution list about things that have a relation to their work and how to have a better quality of life. But that single misplacement of the mouse pointer and the mindless concern of pushing the correct button can cause great anxiety thanks to the Internet that made it happen.

Anxiety caused by Wikipedia freefall

There is this thing about Wikipedia freefall which leads to people from researching about a topic ending up reading other unrelated entries. While there may not be adverse initial effects on doing this but it is easy to lose track of time. Before you know it you have been reading one Wikipedia entry too many causing you to be anxious about losing sleep because you have been at it for 12 hours! You may find it perplexing that you have already be missing out on sleep or even food because you have been too engrossed on doing Wikipedia freefall. It would not be a problem if it happens once or twice but if it is something that happens quite frequently then it is a source for concern.

Anxiety powered by social media

Are you constantly worried about how other people may talk about you when you are not around? That would happen prior to social media. Today, people are also worried about how others perceive them this time on social networks. People tend to post messages that would describe a person without naming any name. This becomes a game that people play as they try to decipher who is being alluded to by the cryptic posts. Sometimes when the description closely matches yours you become too worried that you could be that person they are talking about. Suddenly you feel the urge of knowing if they have been at it for quite a while.

Anxiety and confusion on queer things

If there is one thing that the Internet has brought to fore is that the world has become much smaller. Things that older generation of people may not be able to see within their lifetime became something that is ordinary for people that has been a habitual viewer of You Tube. To the average Internet user, taking a look at queer things or events that are out of the ordinary is something you expect. It may cause confusion and sometimes unexplained worry because of the unfamiliarity about things that you just saw off the Internet.

Anxiety over sudden changes on the Internet

There are people that are creatures of familiarity and they tend to be anxious when there are things that change. Their inability to cope with changes is something that happen offline. But it has become exacerbated when we take it online. You see people tend to be worried when the things that they do often suddenly change but it becomes more frequent because it is faster to roll out change over the Internet compared to a real world setting.

As the Internet has become widely used for a good two decades now it seems that there are new worries that has become more destructive than witchcraft or black magic. Suddenly we become worried about things that we do that are related to our engagement with the Internet.

Cymbalta Withdrawal Symptoms – From Brain Zaps To Bipolarity

Cymbalta is the commercial name of duloxetine, an SNRI (Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor) commonly used to treat cases of severe depression and sometimes chronic pain that originates from the nervous system or diabetes related issues.

While this medication does a lot of good, withdrawing from it could get pretty ugly. The process may differ from one person to another, but the bottom line stays the same – you will suffer some temporary sickness and you will eventually be OK.


There’s a significant list of symptoms that a person may suffer while they are on withdrawal from Cymbalta. The list of symptoms specified in this article is a partial list of the symptoms which was composed from my memory of my own experience with Cymbalta withdrawal, and the experiences of others who shared their stories online. A person is likely to suffer from the symptoms specified in this article, but nothing is certain. One person might suffer all these symptoms and more, but also might get away scott free. I am NOT a licensed physician, just a person who experienced the process of withdrawal from Cymbalta and wishes to assist others who also have to go through this tedious process.

A List of Side Effects and Symptoms Caused by Cymbalta Withdrawal

Brain zaps– They’re a feeling that doesn’t have a bona fide definition. If you want to know what to expect, close your eyes and imagine that there’s a little man inside your brain, and he just sits there. Now, imagine that he spreads all his extremities to all sides, punching and kicking the walls of your brain one time with all his might, and then sits back down. That impact to the brain is accompanied by a short burst of intense headache, dizziness and sometimes nausea – That’s the closes I can get to describing what the “Brain-zaps” felt like to me. They were my personal “favorite” symptom and they can get pretty scary. This symptom can be eased by taking Omega 3 and acetylcholine. supplements.

Lasting headaches Headaches in general are a delightful experience aren’t they? This was the first symptom I experienced and is in fact usually the first symptom to manifest itself in most people. To me there were no brain-splitters though, just long and persistent background mind pains that bothered me and kept me from performing my everyday functions.

Dizziness – Usually mild although extremely stubborn – lying down doesn’t help it because it doesn’t derive from physical instability; it derives from your brain going through withdrawal. I found these to be no more than a bit annoying and I haven’t found anyone who complained about it being more severe than that.

Insomnia – Some people have difficulties falling asleep due to other symptoms they are experiencing such as headaches or hot flashes. However, sleep deprivation sometimes manifests itself as a symptom on its own. When I went through withdrawal I could hardly sleep at all. Sometimes it was because I just couldn’t fall asleep and sometimes the headaches would keep me awake. The sleep deprivation was there to bother me from the very beginning to the very end of my withdrawal, and it was the second most disturbing symptom for me, right after brain zaps.

Nausea – It’s hard for me to elaborate on this because I didn’t notice it at all. I wasn’t even aware that it was a symptom before I began researching for this article. However, the nausea is a very common symptom which appears in different levels for different people. For some it’s very mild while others may even throw up. Although I didn’t suffer from it myself, the crushing majority of people report to have suffered from it to some extent.

Hot and cold flashes – Some people shiver and sweat while others don’t notice the flashes at all. I suffered greatly from hot flashes, but since I wasn’t being observed by any medical professional, I thought it was just an extremely hot summer. Most people do experience them. Many patients even find themselves changing their clothes several times each day in order to deal with the variation of perceived temperatures. I just went swimming very often, and always in the sea. I have a swimming pool near my house but the smell of chlorine significantly increased my headaches. I also found that being in the water helped me relax, and I really needed that back then, due to the next symptom I’m about to tell you about.

Bipolarity – this is one of the most common symptoms and it makes a lot of sense, too. People on withdrawal from Cymbalta experience mood swings between extreme anger, fatigue, hyper-activeness, a feeling of futility and even depression.  I was like “The Hulk”. I exploded at anything and everything and when I wasn’t angry I was depressed like never before. My mood was extremely volatile but always self-destructive, and it was a disaster for my social life. Some people still think I’m insane, which I probably was. But it’s important to remember that I didn’t know to expect these symptoms. I didn’t have any medical observance and I didn’t know I was going through withdrawal. I thought that this was actually the real me without the meds. That increased my depression and kicked my self-esteem to the curb. However, you, having read this, will probably have a much easier time dealing with this side effect, and that makes me happy I took the time to write this article for you.

Diarrhea I had it, you’ll have it, everybody gets some. It’s a very common symptom and it usually only lasts for a few days. Explosive diarrhea for everyone! Woohoo!

Cymbalta Withdrawal Duration

How long does the average person suffer from these dreadful symptoms? Unfortunately, that question cannot be answered unambiguously. There are ways to shorten the period and ease the symptoms, various supplements can help with that. The best supplement for easing cymbalta withdrawal symptoms is Neuro Endure Mini. It’s recommended far and wide throughout the internet and you can get a good deal on it right here. You can People are physically different from one another, and that means that different people suffer from different symptoms for different periods of time. To most people, it takes between two and three weeks to get over their withdrawal side effects, but sometimes it could be longer.  To me it took a little over two months until the symptoms disappeared completely. But I went “cold turkey”, which you won’t, and I wasn’t under any medical observation, which you will be. So stay optimistic, keep your head high and remember – this will all be over soon.

 Additional Help and Info

A lot of people dread experiencing the hardships of Cymbalta withdrawal. It’s a feeling of sickness in the brain, and that can be terrifying. Fortunately, it’s not an everyday feeling and so it’s very important to remember that the side effects will decrease and eventually go away. Some people recommend various changes of diet and exercise regimes, saying that once they have changed their eating habits and began exercising, their need for Cymbalta gradually diminished until it was gone completely.

To deal with the stress the symptoms may cause you, and to better understand your condition, I recommend this book.
It contains tons of useful information that will not only get you prepared and ready to wean off Cymbalta, but will also be a great source of information if you’ve already began the process. It’s not crucial to your withdrawal or anything like that, and you’ll be fine whether you know what you’re doing or not, but it might help to ease your stress if you know what you’re dealing with and how to deal with it, and it absolutely will give you a good, clear and objective perspective on what’s happening to you.

Since most painkillers won’t help, if you’d like to try to ease your symptoms using supplements and speed up your recovery, I recommend Neuro Endure Mini. It’s a supplement for brain health that does not create a dependency so you won’t have to re-rehabilitate, and it comes in small doses (1/4 neuro endure). It treats many of the symptoms of Cymbalta withdrawal and improves general brain health, and it does so effectively and gently. You can get it here.

Ceasing to use Cymbalta is not a simple task, and it is one best preformed gradually and carefully. Do NOT go “cold turkey”, Do NOT start or stop using Cymbalta without consulting a licensed physician, and of course, if you feel ill in any way, weather in accordance to the symptoms list or not, consult a licensed physician immediately! Any other course of action would be foolish, irresponsible and potentially hazardous to your health.

If you need additional support to help you through the process, feel free to contact me. If I can make this process any easier for you, I would love to help, especially since no one was there to help me when I went through it.

Day Jobs Suck So… I’m Quitting. For Life.

Having a day job sucks

My name is Itay Rijensky. At the time I am writing this (July 10, 2012) I am 25 years old and I have a day job as the manager of a computers and electronics store in Nesher, Israel. I hate my day job, my day job sucks. That’s why I’ve decided to quit it and try to create a passive income online for myself.

This blog will accompany me in my efforts to achieve an income via the internet which will be steady and high enough for me to “stick it to the man” (I know, that expression sucks almost as much as a day job) and quit.

day jobs suck - neverending journey towards nothing.“Every journey begins with a single step.”

That cliché is unfortunately as true as it gets. To begin my way towards freedom from modern slavery, I must start working for myself.

Dear person reading this, cover your ears. This post is a gunshot.? This is when I start running.I don’t want to finish first, I don’t want to finish second, I just want to finish and so help me, I will.

Regev Elya

Day jobs suck - RegevRegev Elya is a dear and close friend of mine. He is the owner of and He used to always tell me about the option to make money online and work for yourself from wherever you want, whenever you want. I thought he was full of it, a man dwelling in his own fantasy.

Just when I was about to start my first (and last ??I hereby solemnly swear) semester at the university, Regev was traveling all over asia and Europe without a day job, with sufficient income and without a care in the world. He has money because he works for himself. people with day jobs work for someone else, and that someone else gets more money for their work than?them! That’s why day jobs suck so much. for example, you might get a 100$ incentive for selling things for over a 1000$ profit. That’s unfair, but you can’t blame anyone but yourself.

The beauty of the way he’s doing it is that he’s actually helping people. He writes high quality materials that, if you are as interested as you should be in their subjects, are very useful.


Honesty is the virtue I hold dearest to my heart. I speak only truth, even when it’s offensive. so it is important for me to disclose that I’m very unsure about this. I know Regev is doing it and there are plenty of other people who do, but can I?

Back to school

In order to learn everything I need to know, Regev directed me to “The keyword academy”. An awesome website with all the info anyone needs in order to start monetizing on their passion online. They taught him how to do it, and they will teach me. I joined (it’s not free) and started learning. The guys who run the site, Court and Mark, are great. They’re helping me with every step of the way. Their lessons are clear and conclusive and they actually care. It’s worth the membership fee, hands down. I’m starting to work on my website by their program and Hopefully, my next post in this category will be called “my first made internet penny”.
