How do I become less neurotic I know, only a neurotic person

This answer was rated:

How do I become less neurotic? I know, only a neurotic person cares so much about the results of an online personality test.
The best treatment for neurosis is psychotherapy. It has minimal, if any, risks as long as you have a decent therapist. I am also a big advocate of learning formal relaxation therapy, by which I mean yoga, meditation, or similar methods. Having relaxing hobbies is also important, but not quite the same as formal relaxation therapy.

Psychotherapy & relaxation therapy are proven by sophisticated studies using brain scans (CT, MRI, EEG, pet scans) to improve brain function.

As far as not having time, I certainly understand that. Modern life can be busy, difficult, and stressful. The key to emotional & physical health is balancing your life...which can be a juggling act.

The question you have to ask yourself is can you afford not to make time? Even if you start slowly (15 minutes of meditation 3X/week, e.g.)

Nutrition & exercise are vital aspects of balancing your life, but I think the 1st 2 ideas are the best for you (psychotherapy & meditatio or other relaxation therapy).

I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more feedback. Good luck & take care.
