Go Upside Down for a New Perspective

Inversions, Climbing and Hanging Around

[Keating stands on his desk]
John Keating: Why do I stand up here? Anybody?
Dalton: To feel taller!
John Keating: No!
[Dings a bell with his foot]
John Keating: Thank you for playing Mr. Dalton. I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.

Dead Poet’s Society, 1989

Having trouble thinking of new ideas?  Is there a problem you can’t quite solve?  Are you stuck in a rut?

Maybe you just need to change how you see the world by changing where you see it from.  Give one of these ideas a try:

  • Take a yoga class and practice headstands, handstands and inversions.
  • Try out the climbing gym or an outdoor rock climbing class.
  • Climb a tree.
  • Play on the monkey bars at the playground.
  • Hang from your knees on the Smith Machine at the gym.
  • Do some crunches on the inversion bench.
  • Find an AcroYoga or AntiGravity Yoga class.
  • Get a TRX Suspension Trainer.
  • Talk your honey into testing out those new positions on that app you downloaded on your Android or iPhone.
  • Swing on that pole.
  • Dust off those gravity boots in the attic, closet, under the bed.
  • Fly on a trapeze.

Getting more blood to your brain could help too.
