(1) Suggested actions to take this week

Option (A) for those ready to seize the moment, (B) in case you need to ease in a little, 

(A) Between now and the end of the month, start to pay attention to sensory details and your emotions as if you were going to recount them to someone else. Then, the next time you tell a story, include at least one more sensory or emotional detail than you might have before.

(B) Between now and the end of the month, whenever you hear someone tell a story or recount an incident, start to pay attention to whether or not you feel engaged and why that is. Notice whether or not they’re including describing their (or someone else’s) emotion or any sensory details. If you feel moved, ask them, “What did it look like?” and/or “How did you feel?”
