Way of the Toddler™
The Idea: A new wellness system based on the behavior of toddlers.
The Inspiration: Hanging out with my wee girl when she was a toddler
Toddlers, by and large, are a happy and healthy group.
As adults, we could learn a lot from them.
Way of the Toddler™ is a complete wellness system which, in my imagination, would become a global phenomenon a la Taibo or Zumba.
I'd then proceed to become incredibly rich and famous on the back of the videos, books, public appearances and associated merchandising.
The Way is a daily system that requires no specialist equipment (except my Officially Licensed Products of course) or space and is open to all age groups and health levels.
Way of the Toddler™ Components:
Short Burst Running™
I hate jogging or running on machines but I do need to get my cardio up.
Toddlers can never seem to just causally stroll from a-to-b they sprint. Even if it's just from the living room to the bathroom.
Introduce this "Short Burst Running™" (SBR) into your everyday routine.
Popping to the store? Try SBR there.
Going to the kitchen? SBR.
Smaller portions throughout the day. Feel free to eat what you want.
No red meat
Nap when you like
Jump up and down on your bed for 15-30 minutes
Read a nice story before bed
Go to bed early wake up at 6:30am and watch Scooby Doo on YouTube (trust me, the newest ones are fantastic)
Turn everything into play. Approach all situations with infinite curiosity. Watch things like the TSA cease to bother you.
Angry? Have a proper screaming tantrum, right there on the spot. You'll feel great! Equally, let the tantrum pass as quickly as it arrived. Watch co-workers and waiting staff treat you with wariness and respect.
The Future of Way of the Toddler™
I've been meaning to introduce the system into my life and do one of those "before and after" style pictures. I'm fatter than I've ever been, so now would be the time. Problem is, I like caffeine and alcohol too much. The latter being responsible for the girth I suspect...
Still, this is one of my favorite ideas and I hesitated to post this one. It's clearly a bit silly but I think it could genuinely garner results.
So, it's over to you Internet - and don't forget, if you make millions, a decent check would always be appreciated!.
Alternatively, if you are an appropriate brand, I would consider a six-figure sponsorshiop deal to do this for a year: Ideas@FloydHayes.com
