to all da muzzis

Ramadan has trained us to be able to give something up for a long period of time for an extended period of time. One way we can take advantage of it is by repeating that behavior in other things.
Give up the internet for an entire week. Give up talking for a weekend. Give up electricity for a day. The trick is to give up something that is so a part of your daily life that you take it for granted that it exists. Give up sitting on chairs for a week. Give up using the microwave for a month.
You’ll start to realize how much of your life is an addiction and an unhealthy attachment to material objects. And after about an 1/8th of the way through it, you’ll start enjoying yourself more than you have in years.
