    … trying for sainthood?

    5 minutes earlier for everything … lift weights and run a mile each day … early to bed and getting enough sleep … meditate… eating healthy means cooking your own food … all that is already half a day

    How about some time just to “kick back” and do nothing? Or, how about some time each week to walk in the park, country or seaside? There is some value in that, you know … It could have real value when trying to be creative. (But, then if you have to “plan” such times of relaxation they kind of lose their spontaneous value and significance.)

    You don’t have to try to be St. Xeno, the machine!

    That’s a great list, Xeno. My list for the new decade has some overlap with your own.

    But converting to the navy shower years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Now it’s my routine and I can’t go back. The old way is so overrated. I found that I actually got cleaner because I could focus on lathering all over. Kudos to you, everyone should do the same.
