Do we really have to hit rock bottom before we do it? In some ways this is what meditation is trying to get at. Finding the answers, or the right questions, within. Deciding what you want and the way forward.

Invert this practice.
Get a daily dose of some soul searching. Combine that with finding the beauty outside of you that stimulates inside of you.
