Spiritual Ebb and Flow, the Sequel

I asked Rabbi Ozer Bergman the question from my previous post and he said that it was a great idea to take on something new during your "ratzo," so that you will lift up where you bottom out in your "shov," but with one azhara; Make sure that you're taking on something that you will be able to hold onto when you're lacking the motivation that you have now. If not, then giving up what you take on now can make the yerida even more destructive.

This is also similar to an idea from A Simple Jew here. HT to A Simple Jew for pointing that out to me.
