The three-headed hydra of apathy, envy and fear has the workout you need.

Stressed? Depressed? Unsure? Watch your cares and pounds melt away with the three-headed hydra workout

The “Three-Headed Hydra” Workout

Why be fearful when you can feel fabulous? The three-headed hydra of apathy, envy and fear has the perfect workout for you. Watch those extra pounds and pesky worries about humanity melt away. Allow me to demonstrate.

Step 1: The Book Burn Twirl

Step 1: The Book Burn Twirl: Hold in each hand a copy of the 2.9 pound book 100% Community: Ensuring the ten vital services for surviving and thriving. Do NOT open books (ever). Instead, step to the right and wave the books in a small circle for one minute. Feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that book twirling, as opposed to reading, is burning away the calories and brain cells.

Step 2: The Net Numbing Nod

Step 2: The Net Numbing Nod: Hold in one hand your mobile and the other your laptop. Move to the left then stare at the mobile for 10 minutes. Make sure it shows talking heads on your favorite “news” show, while streaming your dance tunes. Now look at your laptop for 30 minutes, showing your favorite HBO series. Feel a sense of calm as your screens fill your mind with disconnected clutter, rather than being used to connect you with health equity and social justice activities.

The hydra head of fear demonstrates Step 3: The Banana Pudding Posture

Step 3: The Banana Pudding Posture: Hold a spoon in one hand and the pudding in the other. (Recommended: Magnolia Bakery Banana Pudding* from NYC.) Every 30 seconds bring the spoon to the pudding, then to mouth. Savor the taste. With each swallow, know that without changing anything in your life, the world gets better. At least your world.

The hydra’s workout is all about you focusing exclusively on you. And stopping there.

* Allergic to bananas and whipped cream? Substitute pudding with white wine.
