Tips & Tricks
Long time a go in a galaxy far, far away…
I was a cadet in the naval academy.
Not a big deal, but for a while I had to give up my privacy.
Living in a dormitory with 100 other men.
Sharing common showers and living quarters.
And of course not a living woman around.
That of course raised a big question.
How do you deal with the raging hormones of a 19 years old man?
At least till the weekend leave…
Purely by accident I found out that after playing intensely for an hour or two of basketball my horniness went down and actually I did not have to deal with the problem… until at least the next day of course.
So every time I was horny and had no other means to deal with the problem, I would hit the gym and burn out the extra sexual energy.
So here is the tip for today:
BURN OUT THE UNWANTED OR NEGATIVE ENERGY!
Instead of crying over being dumped by your lover or chewed up by your boss:
Hit the gym!
(Beat up a gym bag and pretend it is the hated enemy.)
Instead of hitting the refrigerator for the ice-cream or the chips – or even worse the bottle and the drugs:
Burn out your anger, pain, fear, jealousy, sadness or whatever!
(It would not solve your problem but at least you’ll be in excellent shape :)
Now here is even a more excellent tip:
USE YOUR NEGATIVE ENERGY TO FUEL YOUR CREATIVITY!
Many of the most amazing human creations – novels, poems, paintings, are deeply rooted in human suffering and misery.
Think Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Baudelaire, and van Gogh
Some of my favorite music – Beethoven, Mahler, are stories of human hurt and agony.
(Just put on Mozart’s “Requiem” and you’ll understand what I mean.)
So instead of wallowing in your own tears and self pity why don’t you write a novel about it?
Why don’t you take your heart breaking story and turn it into a movie script?
Energy is energy; it doesn’t have to be positive to move you and if it moves you, it doesn’t have to move you on a self destructive path!
So if you have problems think of them as a source of energy.
Burn it up or use it in a creative way.
Whatever you choose don’t let your negativity take over your life.
You will not like where sorrow will take you.
