This tension exists when you feel something that you don’t want to feel—when you feel something, and you don’t know why you feel it. You feel frustrated because you ordinarily feel good, yet today—or lately—you don’t. Feeling good is a challenge.   Once again, curiosity holds the key. Instead of rushing to avoid the feeling, […]

The negative thoughts are always there, lying low beneath the surface. They will probably always be there, popping up from time to time. They creep up in the most unexpected ways. In the most inopportune times. Don’t let them freak you out. Don’t let them bother you. They are normal. They are just a feeling. […]

Be selfish in your pursuit of what you need to be happy, fulfilled, and at ease. Be selfish to provide for yourself the energy-restoring necessities of your mind and body. It’s the most important thing you can do right now. Consider: What moves you, gives you energy, nourishes your mind? What do you want to […]

When it feels like lately it’s harder to stay focused, to stay on track–it feels monotonous, strained, frustrating. When it feels like you’re just going through the motions and the motion feels effortful–more than it should, more than it usually does. Consider: what you’re lacking, isn’t effort, isn’t motivation, but rest. Free time. Time where […]

Choose what you know you will want in the future, what you know is good for you, even if you don’t want it yet—like vegetables. Here’s the thing about choice: it’s easier than we make out to be in […]

It feels like swimming upstream, weighted down. It feels masochistic, deranged. It feels wrong, unnatural, and probably is, but it’s essential to your happiness and survival.   To defy comfort—not all comfort, but to command comfort on your terms, when you decide, not when your feelings decide—means resisting the hypnotizing draw of desire. To defy comfort requires a concrete and […]

Each moment we are more than capable of conquering. Each minute we can handle with finesse and ease. It’s when we look ahead and behind that we become overwhelmed. If we can just slow ourselves down to this moment and look at this one small task before us—this word, this breath, this action—it’s manageable. We […]

When you want something that you don’t really want, don’t want to want, consider, what will you want one hour from now? You don’t need to look so far into the future. It’s hard to perceive the gratification you will experience one month from now; it’s hard to really picture what it will feel like, […]
