Feeling Good Book Nuggets



“If you’re happy, if you’re feeling good, then nothing else matters.” — Robin Wright

This post is my index of book nuggets from Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Revised and Updated, by David D. Burns, M.D.

In Feeling Good, Dr. Burns teaches you how to rid yourself of anxiety, guilt, pessimism, procrastination, low self-esteem, and other “black holes” of depression without drugs.

Dr. Burns outlines specific skills and techniques for feeling good.  He helps you lift your spirits and develop a positive outlook on life.

You can use these skills for feeling good for the worst tragedies in your life or just making the most of everyday.

  1. Hi J.D.

    I like how you organized your nuggets. It makes it easy for your readers to find the links they’re looking for.

    Great idea!

  2. Hey Barbara — great to hear! I was just revisiting this today. I have some more lists to add.

    I don’t know how well this will scale over time, but so far this seems like the best approach to pull collections together and make them available. The only other approach I can think of is to use some social software tools to create lists and collections, but I haven’t experimented much yet.

  3. i am wondering if this book is on CD so that I can put in my car and listen to it on the way home from work or to work….the book was recommened but I hate to read.

  4. @Paula — You can check out Dr. David D. Burns’ audios, but I don’t think this particular book has an audio version that I could find.

    Tony Robbins might be your best bet if you want an audio format.
