If you die right now, what is number one thing you will regret not having done in your life? I bet even when I ask you this question, you don’t know the answer for sure. It is because the real answer is hidden in your subconscious, and thanatotherapy can supposedly help you discover it. “Thanatos” means death in Greek. It is therapy by death.
As soon as I heard about it, I knew it was for me. I like extreme and exciting kinds of activities, probably more because of the intense hormones of happiness they give me than the therapeutic affect itself.
And so I decided to try it. Continue reading “My backyard grave or how I died for 3 hours”
Live your life before you kick the bucket
100 ideas in a fun lifelong to-do list
Are you stuck in everything that’s urgent forgetting about everything that’s important? You may continue living like this until you die. Do you want to? Some people did not, and they came up with bucket lists.

We all have monsters in our heads that prevent us from being disciplined clean human beings with well brushed teeth. This article is about how to deal with these monsters.
They say early morning and before going to bed is the best time for meditation, to calm your mind and have a good day and a good nights sleep. For me, those are two most difficult times of the day. In the morning I just cannot seem to wake up for the first three hours of the day and keep making many irrational decisions. In the evening my mind is tired, so it refuses to collaborate which prevents me from brushing my teeth and removing my make up, or preparing myself to sleep in any way possible.
Years of observation, reading articles and trying experiments have taught me to deal with my morning zombie and evening toothbrush monster and here I want to share with you how I do it. Continue reading “Live with your monsters”
