Preoccupati meno e vivi alla grande!
Quando cadiamo vittime di ansie, paure e preoccupazioni, la vita può diventare una prigione. Il primo passo da compiere, allora, è riconoscerla. Il secondo è immaginare cosa c'è fuori della prigione.
Ma vaffanculo... Se tutti imparassero a usare nel modo giusto, liberatorio e non aggressivo, questa espressione, probabilmente ci sarebbero meno medici, meno psicologi e, perché no?, il mondo sarebbe migliore: meno stress, meno tensioni, più leggerezza e più armonia.
Quante volte ci siamo fasciati inutilmente la testa, ci siamo persi in un bicchier d'acqua, abbiamo ingigantito problemi in realtà banali, siamo stati assaliti da ansie o timori ingiustificati? Tante, troppe volte. Invece dovremmo imparare a dare il giusto peso alle cose. Lo sanno bene coloro che hanno vissuto esperienze drammatiche: prendersela per le piccole «rogne» di tutti i giorni non ha senso, ci avvelena solo la vita.
È questo il messaggio liberatorio, appunto, che John Parkin e Gaia Pollini vogliono trasmetterci con il loro libro, che, ricco di suggerimenti, esempio pratici e tecniche da provare subito, ci guiderà su una strada nuova, per imparare ad apprezzare la vita in ogni momento per ciò che è, non per come vorremmo che fosse.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. On one hand, I feel that Parkin (and his wife, who worked on this book with him) took a simple idea that essentially wasn't terribly difficult to grasp and piled on a bunch of unnecessary layers. Why? Cynical me says, "Well, duh, to sell another book and Leggi tutto
F**k it Therapy by John C. Parkin is going to help a lot of people. Wherever you are in life, you know that stress has a stranglehold on a great number of us. Not good, considering stress is the number one killer nowadays. John offers many techniques to help you escape from the self imposed prisons
In the very beginning of the book the core advice was given: We need to say F**k It to those things that really don't matter so much, and focus on those that do. I'm a quick learner. After reading about one third of the book I said F**k It, browsed the rest very quickly and that's it. Didn't like th Leggi tutto
My mother always said that people show their IQs with how they speak and that vulgarity shows a poor vocabulary. I never bought into that theory. I am a psychologist, with a Ph.D., who graduated from a seminary, who often sounds like she spent time as sailor. So, when I saw a book called Fuck It The Leggi tutto
I found it to be a lot of words but not a lot said. Perhaps having gone through "operation simplify my life" many years ago, I wasn't in the right head space to need this type of intervention. There were a number of tangents that I think were to be entertaining but really weren't. I guess if someone Leggi tutto

OK but not more. The book is basically an ad for the authors' retreats, workshops, and the like. I kinda liked the whole "fuck it" approach and the "prisons" we may find ourselves in but the book could be heavily edited for length. Parkin often rants about random things that irritates him. I can't r Leggi tutto
I disliked this with a vengeance. Ugh.
This is a 2 and a half... The thing is that there is a lot of useful stuff in this book-really positive things about being more aware of your feelings, not worrying so much about the small stuff-thinking about what you are grateful for-things that I might actually use. What I didn't like is that I fel Leggi tutto
"Sometimes you just gotta say, 'What the f**k!'" Okay, you movie fans (and probably older ones) will probably recognize that line from the Tom Cruise movie Risky Business , and saying 'what the f**k' to life's trials and vicissitudes is the general idea conveyed in F**k It Therapy . I mean, there's some Leggi tutto
