How to make big changes easily

Yesterday, I talked about gratitude and how one of the obstacles to it is change. Something as simple as a few minutes of thinking, if it’s different, can be difficult. It’s not the only explanation, of course, but it’s a factor. That’s an unsatisfying…

Practicing gratitude is strange. Part of its weirdness comes from how powerful it is. Go to your search engine of choice, punch in “stories about gratitude” and you’ll read how this simple attitude changes lives. As of this writing, the top result is a…

It’s strange: sitting at a desk all day can be the most exhausting way to spend your time. It would be great exercise if it weren’t… you know, not that. You can come home from riding the chair to be unable to do anything…
