Hi all, I am looking for ways of strengthening my mind/brain. My goals are (1) emotion control; (2) stress relief; (3) concentration on work without being affected by outside chaos. My difficult times are: (1) When my GF broke up with me; (2) When my boss demanded me to finish many things overnight; (3) When I lost huge amount of money in investment; (4) When bad news and difficult people arose ... (5) When the surrounding was noisy; (6) When I was angry or overly excited; At these difficult moments, I just couldn't concentrate and focus on my work -- no matter how important it is. I have huge trouble managing my emotion, stress, and hence my concentration and focus. This made my work and my trading up and down and fluctuate a lot. I think I am more sensitive to these things than most people. So annoying! Any suggestions? I've heard that breathing control might help. But how to do it? Anybody tried meditation and really worked? Please give me some pointers! Thanks a lot!
