Prinsip-Prinsip Pikiran (dirangkum dari buku The 7 Laws of Happiness).

Prinsip 1 : Kekuatan terbesar kita adalah kemampuan untuk memilih pikiran kita.

Prinsip 2: Kita tak dapat mengontrol perasaan kita secara langsung. Tetapi kita dapat mengontrol perasaan kita dengan cara mengontrol pikiran kita.

Prinsip 3: Kita tidak dapat berhenti berpikir. Dalam kondisi apapun kita selalu memasukkan makanan ke dalam pikiran kita.

Prinsip 4: Kita hanya dapat memikirkan satu hal dalam satu waktu.

Prinsip 5: Pada saat kepala Anda terinfeksi pikiran negatif, Anda dapat membuangnya saat itu juga dan menggantinya dengan sebuah pikiran positif.

Prinsip 6: Kemampuan untuk mengubah pemikiran adalah seperti otot. Ia dapat tercipta berkat latihan dan disiplin yang sungguh-sungguh kita lakukan.

Prinsip 7: Pikiran tidak dapat membedakan mana kejadian yang telah lama terjadi dan mana kejadian yang baru saja terjadi. Begitu Anda memikirkan kejadian yang Anda alami walaupun telah berlangsung lama, Anda akan merasa seolah-oleh kejadian tersebut baru saja terjadi.

Be Aware of the Snowball Effect of Your Thinking

Be Aware of the Snowball Effect of Your Thinking
"Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson, PhD

A powerful technique for becoming more peaceful is to be aware of how quickly your negative and insecure thinking can spiral out of control. Have you ever noticed how uptight you feel when you're caught in your thinking? And, to top it off, the more absorbed you get in the details of whatever is upsetting you, the worse you feel. One thought leads to another, and yet another, until some points, you become incredibly agitated.

For example, you might wake up in the middle of the night and remember a phone call that needs to be made in the following day. Then, rather than feeling relieved that you remembered such an important call, you start thinking everything else you have to do tomorrow. You start rehearsing a probable conversation with your boss, getting yourself even more upset. Pretty soon you think to yourself, "I can't believe how busy I am. I must make 50 calls a day.Whose life is this anyway?" and on and on it goes until you're feeling sorry for yourself. For many people, there's no limit to how long this type of "thought attack" can go on. In fact, I've been told by clients that many of their days and nights are spent in this type of mental rehearsal. Needless to say, it's impossible to feel peaceful with your head full of concerns and annoyances.

The solution is to notice what's happening in your head before your thoughts have a chance to build any momentum. The sooner you catch yourself in the act of building your mental snowball, the easier it is to stop. In our example here, you might notice your snowball thinking right when you start running through the list of what you have to do in the next day. Then, instead of obsessing on your upcoming day, you say to yourself, "Whew, there I go again," and consciously nip it in the but. You stop the train of thought before it has a chance to get going. You can then focus, not on how overwhelmed you are, but on how grateful you are for remembering the phone call that need to be made. If it's the middle of the night, write it down on a piece of paper and go back to sleep. You might even considering keeping a pen and paper by the bed for such moments.

You may indeed a very busy person, but remember that filling your head with thoughts of how overwhelmed you are only exacerbates the problem by making you feel even more stressed than you already do. Try this simple little exercise the next time you begin to obsess on your schedule. You'll be amazed at how effective it can be.

SBY launches third album
The Jakarta Post

Taking a break from political tension facing his administration, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono released his third album of songs, at Taman Ismail Marzuki culture center on Sunday, reports.

Titled Ku Yakin Sampai ke Sana [I am sure I can get there], the new album comprises nine songs of various genres. A number of noted musicians were involved in the creation of the album, including Jay Tobing, Rio Febrian, Fariz RM, Elfa Singers, Tantowi Yahya, Koswoyo Junior and Vidi Aldiano.

The lyrics of the songs look to represent the President’s mood.

"Amid my endeavors and struggles to fulfill the people’s mandate, I sometimes express my feelings in an artistic way. Through art I hope to communicate my mood to the general public, the children of Indonesia," Yudhoyono said in his speech at the launch.

He said the album was a reflection of his conviction, commitment and determination to lead the country to prosperity.

The release comes as Yudhoyono completes the first 100 days in office for his second term, and in the wake of mounting pressure from House of Representatives lawmakers for Vice President Boediono and Finance Minister to resign in connection with the controversial Bank Century bailout.
