Breathing makes me happy, and breathing makes me unhappy, so I have learnt to constrict my breathing lest I feel anything, instead of doing as I am told.

So I am consciously practising breathing, and feeling both happy and unhappy.

A few:

Ideas
Making music
Listening to music
Cheesy b movies
Exploring wooded trails
Getting different and unfamiliar views of familiar places
Sex
First coffee of the day
RPG video games
Alternate history and/or time travel stories

Sorry, not 101
