W-O-R-K

WORK YOUR BODY.

RUN.

Start slow. Pick up speed to run faster than you think you can.

Feel the sweat oozing out of pores you never knew existed on your body.

Sense yourself becoming lighter, faster, in tune with the environment.

STRETCH.

Break the shackles of sitting while staring at a screen, sitting while traveling, sitting while relieving yourself.

Your hamstrings, your back, your abs- they can move in magnificent ways. Stretch them. It may hurt, but you will get used to it.

And then feel free.

LIFT.

Lift weights. Build muscle mass.

Stare at yourself naked in front of the mirror after the workout.

Look powerful. Feel powerful.

DANCE.

Learn to dance.

Learn to follow simple rules of movement.

Learn to be graceful.

WORK YOUR MIND.

READ.

Pick up a book. Any book. Now read it. Till the end.

Pick up another book. Of a completely different genre. Read it till the end.

Read newspapers, magazines, articles on the internet.

Never stop reading.

SOLVE.

Learn math and logic. Try making daily calculations like the change at a grocery store without using a calculator.

Find out the analytical side to the field that interests you. The most intriguing questions are always answered not in words, but in numbers and logic.

DREAM.

Be anti-meditative. When you are not doing anything, throw yourself into the recesses of your mind.

You will be surprised what you will find there.
