There are a number of things you could do to make you feel good about your life. You could start by being a little creative and making a playlist. But if you can’t let yourself be creative and make music, you could try to take your time and put on some art.
If you really want to boost your mood and feel good about yourself, you could just give yourself a little mental break every now and then. In the past, the best thing we’ve done is take a break from our normal routine, go for a walk or ride around, and take mental notes. That’s all it is, but it helps.
If you can’t let yourself be creative but you can’t do anything to prevent yourself from getting too bored, try something really simple. It doesnt have to be anything glamorous; just a little thing that you do when you get bored of normal stuff. Like, maybe you’re bored of being in the gym and you’re just going to go for a short walk.
I think this is the basic idea behind the “if it kills you, don’t do it” technique. If you really are bored of doing what you’re doing, do something else.
I can see this concept being used in a video game, like Mario or some other adventure game. In a game, it would be a simple way to give you more options. You could be an old guy with no legs and you could be a young guy with a bad case of arthritis. You could be a guy with a funny name and a good sense of humor and you could be a guy with a bad case of diabetes and no idea what to do.
The best thing to do in Deathloop is to be able to watch the video. For instance, when you get back from vacation, the first part of the video has you in the middle of a fight and he’s about to put a knife through your ribs and stop you. What do you do? You go to the next part to see if he’s done anything else. You’re about to kick the guy out of the house, but he doesn’t know what you’re doing.
