How to be more mindful of repeat experiences

  • Recognise that the second experience will never be a replica of the first experience. On the contrary, it will always vary to some degree.
  • Looking for the novelty in the repeat experience will feel engaging.
  • Recognise that events are neither positive nor negative. It's how we view the events that make them positive or negative. If we look to find the experience enjoyable, we'll find evidence for it.
