I was starting to get IMsomnia... couldn't stop thinking about what I needed to do online, etc. I would think while eating, while watching Hawaii 5-0 and while my girlfriend was droning on about what color to paint her nails, etc.
I tried exercising... but i thought about it while running. I tried the gym but found myself thinking between sets. Finally I realized that I needed to engage my mind and body at the same time.
So, I joined Kali Majapahit - A form of martial arts involving sticks, knives and empty hands.
It was the best decision I ever made. You can't think about the latest Wordpress plugin or SEO software if someone is attacking you with a stick. For an hour or two daily, my mind gets a break... and it's the best thing ever.
Music is the space between the notes.
So, what do you do for a mental break?
P.S - To the obsessed IMer, that's just a video. Kali Majapahit has no affiliate program
