Advice to those who are struggling with living an ascetic life in the Holy and Joyful Fifty Days:
1. Practice breathing while praying the Jesus Prayer.
2. Eat without filling yourself (no seconds!)
3. Don’t be lazy and lie about in front of any type of screen (TV, phone, tablet, etc.) If you wish to rest, pick up your Holy Scripture or a spiritual book and exercise your spirit.
4. Remember the day of your death constantly and the new life afforded to you by our Savior’s Resurrection.
