- Allocating yourself enough time for chores can make them seem more pleasurable.
- Vipassana meditation involves sitting absolutely still for long periods. Set an alarm to go off in thirty minutes, and settle into position. Sit on the floor with your back straight, if you can; otherwise, sit on a chair. Close your eyes and be still. Focus on your breath's passage in your nostrils. Observe what happens in your mind and body when you override any desire to move. The practice develops profound awareness and, eventually, insight.
- The practice is to smile as soon as we wake up, recognizing this day as an opportunity for practicing.
