As a follow-up on yesterday, many people say that they want their life to get better, when in fact they really mean that they want their life to be different. You are sitting on your couch and you are felling lonely. You say you want to feel better. But you get drunk or drugged or eat a lot of sugar and carbs. You may very well feel differently, but you won't feel better. There are many short-term solutions to "different." There are only long-term solutions to feeling "better." A bit of daily abstinence in some behaviors, a bit of moderation in spiritual practice, exercise and staying connected to world around you is a better practice. I have found it so.
