PsyBlog: Schopenhauer's Extreme Self-Help for Pessimists: "Here are some practical suggestions Schopenhauer put forward for managing ourselves:

* Live in the present, making it as painless as possible.
* Make good use of the only thing we can control, our own minds.
* Our personality is central to our level of happiness.
* Set limits everywhere: limits on anger, desires, wealth and power. Limitations lead to something like happiness.
* Accept misfortunes: only dwell on them if we're responsible.
* Seek out solitude, other people rob us of our identities.
* Keep busy."
