Re: facial muscles twitching when in social situation
I had eye twitching a few times some years ago and it was because of being nervous: very wound up. In any case I would strongly recommend meditation. You can easily separate it from religion, in fact there is quite a lot of fascinating work being done by the scientific community lately starting to explain how it works. It is very easy to start, the resuts are immediate and very positive. It took me half an hour a day for a week to start walking around being so mellow and at peace with myself, everything and everyone that others were getting the impression that I wasn't taking life seriously enough. Meditation is an extremely powerful tool to control and shape your emotions, If you train a bit you can detatch yourself from the stress and move to a peaceful balance from where it is easier to accept reality for what it is and devise sensible ways to work with it.
