#4 on A Talmid's list reminds me of Sefer HaMiddos, Achila 1, which states,

"Make certain that there is something left over from the food you eat, so that your sustenance will receive Hashem's blessing."

The Sanz-Klausenberger Rebbe zy'a advised that one review Orach Chaim 231, the halachah that all ones deeds should be done l'shem shamayim, during Shovavim.

“And so in all worldly issues one is engaged in one must be extremely careful to not stray from the way of the intellect, which is our holy Torah, and the counsel for this is, “In all your ways know Him” (Proverbs 3:6) and all of ones actions should be only for the requirements of his service of G-d as explained by the Rambam z’l in Hilchos Deos 3:2,3) and in the Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim (chapter 231) since then it is called serving G-d continually without interruption.” Divrei Chaim parshas Chayei, Vol. 1 page 26.

It may sound easier than it is, but I'm not sure it sounds all that easy.
