Do you ever get the feeling that your life isn’t panning out quite the way it was meant to? Do you ever feel as though you’re perhaps not taking full advantage of your freedom, of your health, of your youth?
For many of us, life can feel like a long gauntlet of different tasks and responsibilities, punctuated by long periods of sitting around bored.
We read stories, watch films and play computer games that feature brave and bold heroes venturing into unknown lands, facing challenges and generally living lives filled with excitement and exploration.
Meanwhile, our own lives consist of sitting in an office all day getting shouted at by our boss, coming home on the train during a busy commute and then sitting in at home on the couch not doing much at all. Or maybe washing up.
Our bodies are literally wasting away from a lack of movement, our minds are starting to decay from a lack of challenge or interest and in general, we are no longer challenging or pushing ourselves.
And the most excitement we typically have is choosing which film to watch on a Friday night… But there’s a whole world out there.
