Appreciate the gift of life. At least once every day, feel the simple joy of being alive.
Imagine yourself in a situation in which you're about to die. Concentrate and feel what that would be like. Then picture yourself being given another chance. The more vividly you can imagine this, the greater you will be able to feel the joy of life itself.
