Within the past year, I haveadded a couple of sunlight lamps and a couple of Himalayan salt lamps to my house. It has really made a difference in my quality of life and I've slowly seen an increase in peacefulness as a result.
Both types of lamps are very inexpensive on Ebay and Amazon.
When you go jogging in the park and you're feeling as if you just cannot go on, look for a physical landmark (like a lamp post or a bench) and say to yourself 'If I make it to that tree, I can slow down' . By the time you get to that tree, you may find it easier to keep going farther down the trail
