There Are Many Ways To Be A Mortified Soul

There are many ways to be a mortified soul and make spiritual progress without doing a complete fast. You can: Choose to eat foods you don't care for, or leave off the butter or salt or other condiment. Skip snacks and desserts - give your share to your children. Prepare your coffee in a way you don't like - drink it black if you like cream and sugar, or sweeten it if you prefer it black, etc. Omit TV or computer time, or watch what others prefer and you don't. Fast from having the last word or making clever comments. Don't make unnecessary small purchases for yourself. Put your own needs aside in favor of the others.
