Think of a movie you haven't seen since you were a little kid, and track it down and watch it. See how much you remember.

Post what movie in the comments if you want.


November 14, 2008

Channel your emotions into stomping. Stomp out all your anger, happiness, frustration, silliness, what have you! Just stomp around the room. Go nuts!


November 13, 2008

Have a snowball fight. If it's not snowing where you live, have a paperball fight. :*)


November 12, 2008

Try to remember all the words to one of those handclap games you played as a kid. Extra credit if you remember the motions.

"Down by the banks of the hanky-panky where the bullfrogs jump from bank to banky..."


November 11, 2008

Watch the sunset today.

No being too busy. No multitasking. Just watch the freaking sunset.


November 10, 2008

List all your very favorite smells in the world. Put them in the comments if you like.


November 9, 2008

Go fly a kite. No, really, because soon it will be too cold, and you won't be able to. So go fly one now.


November 8, 2008

Expose yourself to a new artist (check out a gallery or a book). Write about what moves you about their work.

Write a letter to yourself in the future. Seal it up and don't look at it until you are the you to whom you were writing.


November 6, 2008

Go outside tonight and count as many stars as you can. Leave the number in the comments, along with any feelings of awe at the beautiful sky.


November 5, 2008

Burn something.

What did you burn? Hopefully not anything important, like yourself or your house or anything. Comment about it if you feel like it.


November 4, 2008

Write down all the curse words you know! You can also alphabetize them, if you feel so inclined.


November 3, 2008

Start a scrapbook or a journal, if you don't have one already. Your life is beautiful and interesting, and someone should be keeping track of it. And in ten years, you can look back on what you've written and laugh. Or cry. Depending. :*)


November 2, 2008

Don't worry today. You are hereby not allowed to worry for the rest of the day. You are free. :*)


November 1, 2008

Take something apart today. It's your decision whether to put it back together or not.

What did you take apart? Did you put it back together? Post in the comments if you like.

Go for a walk. Notice everything.


October 30, 2008

Pick flowers today.

Comment about what kind of flowers if you wish.


October 29, 2008

Pick a habit of yours you wish you didn't have, and break it. Smoking, biting your nails, losing your temper, overeating, being sarcastic to puppies, whatever. Be free!


October 28, 2008

Put on your favorite song, and dance like nobody's watching.

It'll be fuuuuunnnn... :*)


October 27, 2008

Learn how to count to ten in a language foreign to you.

Post your findings in the comments if you like.


October 26, 2008

Spill your drink on something (washable).

On purpose.

Water doesn't count.

(I promise you'll feel freer afterwards.)


October 25, 2008

Kiss someone today. Your wife, your dad, your little brother, your dog, a stranger, I don't care. Just do it.

Comment if you feel like it.


October 24, 2008

Obtain a piece of paper. Draw on it only circles. Any media, any design, but use only circles.


October 23, 2008

Go the entire day (or rest of the day) without looking into a mirror today.

Comment about how it went if you wish.


October 22, 2008

Go back and find the last thing you knew in your heart that you were supposed to do but didn't, and do it.

Tell us about it in the comments, if you like.


October 21, 2008

Destroy something. Then create something.

Let us know in the comments how it goes.


October 20, 2008

Break your daily routine. Order something you've never tried for lunch, take a new route for your morning run, wink at someone if you're usually shy, go all day without checking your email - the possibilities are endless, and the choice is yours. It's up to you how much fun you have with it. :*)

Did you feel invigorated? Uneasy? Different? If you like, let us know how it went in the comments.


October 19, 2008

Buy a homeless person a sandwich.


October 18, 2008

Go to your favorite library or bookstore, and find a section you normally wouldn't visit. Choose a random, interesting-looking book from the shelves, and read the first twenty pages.

Did you keep going after the initial twenty pages? Why or why not? Tell us in the comments, if you wish.


October 17, 2008

Go outdoors, and find something you've never noticed before. Focus on it, and pay explicit attention to it, as if your life depended upon it, for five minutes.

Write your observations in the comments if you like.


October 16, 2008

Talk to a stranger today. It can be as simple as "Nice day today," or as involved as you like.

Try to make it so that your talking to them makes their day just a little bit better. You never know - your "Have a great day!" might cheer up a secretly depressed cashier or waitress.


October 15, 2008

Tell someone you love that you love them, especially if you've never told them before.


October 14, 2008

Throw something across the room.

If you'd like, tell in the comments what you threw and how you felt about it. Did you hesitate? Why did you grab what you grabbed? Did it break (and did you want it to)?


October 13, 2008

Write a poem in the comments.
