Our Daily Bread
In everyday life, draw on opportunities to feel fed – and as you do, really take in these experiences, weaving them into the fabric of your brain and being. For example:
• Receive the warmth and help of other people, which comes in many ways, including compassion, kindness, humour, practical aid, and useful information.
• Get a sense of being supported by the natural world: by the ground you walk on, by sunlight and water, by plants and animals, by the universe itself.
• Notice the accomplishment of goals, particularly little ones like washing a dish, making it to work, or pushing "send" on an email. Register the sense of an aim attained and help yourself feel at least a little rewarded.
• Feel protected, enabled, and delighted by human craft, ranging things like glass, paper, refrigerators, the internet, and painkillers.
• Appreciate how even difficult experiences are bringing good things to you. For example, even though exercise can be uncomfortable, it feeds your muscle fibres, immune system, and heart.
