Human or Habit, Which Are You?
Just a small bit of food for thought to keep your day going. Dr. Joe Dispenza has this to say about you and the other 8 billion people of this world:

How you workout?
When you wake up?
When do you eat?

How do you brush your teeth?
What do you wear?

If the vast majority of our life is simply a memorized behavior or reaction to the world's stimuli, the only way to break free is to think or act differently, to wake up to our sleeping state, and make active choices in our lives.
Maybe it's time to shake things up a little bit. Maybe it's time to add a twist into your life. Try something new, talk to somebody different, take a new way home. Go explore. Go learn. Go fail. Go take a risk.
So one simple challenge for your day:
