Remember who you used to be, get a good babysitter if you need, and let the games begin.

There are things every one of us should do at least once a year – if only to remind ourselves that we are alive. Remember who you used to be, get a good babysitter – if you need one, that is – and let the games begin.

Take action:

Go for a long walk in the rain – who cares if your underwear gets soaked?; go away for a weekend, but don’t decide on a destination beforehand - just get in the car and see where it takes you; read all your old love letters; go and watch two movies in one day and have a pizza and some wine in between the two; get up early and watch the sun rise; phone an old friend you haven't spoken to for ages; wear something outrageous and different to what you would usually wear; and reread your three favourite poems and books – preferably in bed or in front of a fire.
