According to the Buddha, there are five hindrances to living well that should be abandoned.  The following is from Bhikkhu Nanamoli and Bhikkhu Bodhi, eds., The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha:  A Translation of the Majjhima Nikaya (Boston:  Wisdom, 1995).  The five hindrances to meditation [spiritual practice or training] are covetousness, ill will and hatred, sloth and torpor, restlessness and remorse, and doubt.  A bhikkhu is a practitioner.
