I can think of two reasons why:
1) Because that was an easier question to answer :-)
2) Because the circumstances of each persons life are so different it is
not possible to give one pat answer.

Actually I think we did touch upon this the last time you asked. The key
word is vairagya. To decrease as much as possible the attachment to the
non-real and finite is to live an Advaitic life. The easiest way is to
simply become a monk. But actually for most people that's not so easy!
