Own Your Thoughts Own Your Life: A Revealing Guide to Clarify Your Thinking and Transform Your Life is a work of non-fiction in the self-help, guidance, and stress management subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Teresa S. Neal. As its title suggests, this work offers a comprehensive and compassionate guide to getting control of one’s life through a deeper inspection of the way we think. Dr. Neal introduces readers to a process of thought examination through a series of exercises and experiments which are easily done at home, building gradually into a journey of reflection and changing small habits for a much bigger overall gain.
Thinking about thinking isn’t something we’re prone to doing every day, and some people have never been encouraged to be critical or introspective at all. Whether you’re totally new to the concept or someone who’s tried this form of self-help before, author Teresa S. Neal is there with you every step of the way. I found the narrative to be skilled and confident, with an upbeat and friendly tone that shies away from clinical terms (although there’s clearly a lot of solid research and knowledge underpinning every principle). The exercises feel more like opportunities than hard work, which is very encouraging, and I fully intend to incorporate these ideas into my daily life going forward. Overall, Own Your Thoughts Own Your Life delivers everything it promises and would make a valuable addition to the self-help and guidance section of anyone’s personal library. It’s a valuable resource to have on hand when things are tough.
