To the Editor:

An simple but effective solution to help us cope with this stressed out, troubled and negative outlook many of us suffer from today. Answer: Watch an old movie especially from the 1930s and 1940s. You will be surprised how you will feel at the end.

During the movie, there are all kinds of insurmountable problems (like today) but at the end, it always ends happily. We feel good, boy gets girl, romance triumphs or the good guys win but we all leave with a positive, relaxed and stress free feeling that life is truly good, changing our outlook of the world.

We feel positive and “up.”

Move over Dr. Phil.
