How to live a better life
By Sam Jacobs
Editor in Chief

One of our goals at TIME is to help people live better lives. We hope that we provide you with useful information and guidance, which enables you to make smarter, more informed choices. 

One of TIME's writers who helps us deliver on that mission is Angela Haupt, who regularly breaks down solutions to difficult interpersonal challenges. She describes her beat as covering "mental health, happiness and actionable ways to live well," and she often finds a way to put a psychological lens on what's happening in pop culture now.

This week, Angela phoned up therapists to understand how they respond to insults. (I'm putting a few of these suggestions away for future reader letters). Earlier this winter, Angela offered advice on how to ease off of social media. Among her other acts of genuine service: How to say no better and advice on how to navigate your family text chain. And in our Ideas section recently, Donald J. Robertson wrote about the staying power of Marcus Aurelius's Meditations, something that might sound familiar to anyone who saw 2023's The Holdovers. The Stoic philosopher's words are a good reminder that Angela and others at TIME who are finding answers for living well are working as part of an ancient tradition.
