St. Francis de Sales, St. John of the Cross would be the usual recommendations. There's plenty other good stuff. I would just pick one to start with.

The most important thing you must do is to find a spiritual director before undertaking any routine of major mortifications etc.

If you like sugar or cream in your coffee or tea, eliminate one or both of them.

If you hit a snooze button on an alarm clock in the morning to delay getting up....just get up instead.

One wouldn't need special permission from a confessor/spiritual director for the above, and yet they can be hard to start doing.

Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
