    Oct 30 2011: I tell myself what I have to grateful for, by way of a gratitude journal. This sounds like a fluffy practice but give it a try. 2 weeks of writing down what you are grateful for will make you aware of the great joys of life at a deep, experiential level. Then there's almost no choice to be energetic and courageous - it just happens!
