Something that has been very helpful to me is changing the way I communicate with myself. During my internal dialogues I stop asking the question 'what will make me feel happy today?' and replace it with 'what choices can I make today so I will continue to be in a state of joy tomorrow?'

I thought about what it would be like to go to work because it was my vocation. I wondered what would it be like to wake up every day and feel a strong feeling of suitability for my occupation? How would it change the way I experienced the world if instead of seeing work as a necessity.

Dull moments in our days are inevitable, but we have a choice of how we will respond to them. Are we medicating with technology or are we noticing the experience? Numbing out or building coping skills? Avoiding the uncomfortable feelings or reconstructing our days to be less boring?
