I focus on:

2) Getting out of my head and into my body. Movement, nature, even simply long walks, which are a favorite.

I think a lot of our misery is simply an animalistic anxiety from too much sitting.

Hope that helps!(less)

“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn't conspire against you, but it doesn't go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. "Someday" is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it's important to you and you want to do it "eventually," just do it and correct course along the way.”
Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek

“But you are the average of the five people you associate with most, so do not underestimate the effects of your pessimistic, unambitious, or disorganized friends. If someone isn't making you stronger, they're making you weaker.”
Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek

“What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.”
