    There's a great book called The Happiness Trap by Dr Russ Harris. You may find it helpful with unwanted/unhelpful thoughts. I had quite severe OCD for over 10 years and this book, along with ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) helped alot!

    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    And eternity in an hour. - William Blake.

    The book about stopping worrying was written many years ago by Dale Carnegie. There may be a more recent edition.
