Worry, stress, anger, fear, depression, insomnia, self-doubt and tension are some of the many common mental problems that can plague our every day lives, making us unhappy and sick, or  worse.  Since each day lost to these ills cannot be replaced, we ought to be doing something about it.

While we should always consult a medical professional when we have physical or mental problems, there are often many ways that we can help ourselves to a better life.

In the area of self-help there is much to draw upon when looking for ways to improve our lives. Many ideas have been written by great thinkers of the past and best-selling authors of today. Often words written two thousand years ago are more effective than words written today, perhaps because they have withstood the test of time.

These ideas are easy enough to understand, but more difficult to practice. But it just takes practice. A good place to start is the self-help or self-improvement section of your public library or bookstore. If you think that this is an odd place in which to be seen, think again. There are very many big selling self-help titles to choose from. These books are popular reading.

Start with the most popular books on various self-help topics. Reread the better ones, highlight the best phrases, and take notes. Set aside fifteen minutes a day to help make good thinking and happy, satisfied feelings a way of life. It could be the best time investment you ever made.

"All truly wise thoughts have been thought already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience." - Johann von Goethe (1749-1832)
