@Rubywax #AskRuby Have/Would you use technology (hardware or software) to practice mindfulness?
It would be better to learn mindfulness from an authentic, living 3d human who can answer questions. To practice, I listen to CD’s of Mark Williams (a founder of MBCT) to remind me how to pay attention and bring me back from my mind nagging me to death.

"@Rubywax: #AskRuby" Do you like ice cream? X
I’m scared of ice cream. If I take one hit of it I’ve got to finish the carton. It’s junkie behaviour.

@Rubywax #AskRuby by what practical means might we effectively challenge #socialmedia impact on childrens #mentalhealth?
Burn celebrity magazines if any in the house or any other magazine that makes a normal person feel inferior.

@Rubywax Do you have a routine to keep stable - and do you become completely sick of that routine? #AskRuby
I have no routine at all besides brushing my teeth. If I start to get into a “I should have, I didn’t, I’m a looser” state wherever I am, I will (even for a few minutes) try to anchor myself by sensing my breath going in and out or sending my focus to sound, just listening. That cools my engines.

Yes @rubywax : Q: are we getting much closer to being able to talk openly about #mentalhealth in the #workplace without stigma? Thx #AskRuby
I feel there’s a change in the wind coming as far as openly discussing mental illness at work. I hope very soon it will become illegal to discriminate against mental illness just as it is for a physical disability. Free at last. Free at last.
@Rubywax #askruby how would you spend your fantasy 24hrs?
@Rubywax Will you be releasing your show 'Sane New World' on DVD or CD at all? I found it so so useful! :-) :-) #AskRuby
“Sane New World” (the book) is out in audio if you can’t find it come back to me I will whip the appropriate person responsible.

@Rubywax #AskRuby what's your opinion on the current state of mental health services? X
Not very impressive. Where or where will you find someone who A. understands the right drugs to perscripe for specific disorders. B. If you find a good therapist, tell me.
