Most of us strive for a wholesome life, always in search of a balance between competing forces. We all need some moon to go with our sun: a bit of a poet to balance the warrior!

What are some of your unique techniques?

I’ll start. One of my favorite things to do is hang around drinking and smoking. But sometimes I feel like I end up smoking too much. I then make a rule not to light another one until I finish the drink. Then once I fix the next drink, I state to myself: “SoBad has been a Good Drinker, surely he deserves another smoke now”. I feel that third-person style of assessment adds an aura of objectivity and fairness.

Excellent post from my friend @SoBad who knows full well the benefits of a good balance.

It is too late to get into my own complex regimen at length, but rest assured, tomorrow you'll all have insight into how the sun rays soaking into the oculus have given me boundless energy.

Thank you very much and we are looking forward. It is particularly important to hear from folks whose history of pro tennis and international affairs postage highlight balance as a distant long-term goal.

Every weekend, I go to the lakeside, sit under a tree and contemplate on my activities and actions for the week, what worked, what did not, did it meet my moral & ethical standards, and if it did not, how to make sure they do in the future.

For me, tennis is meditation. I forget about the world and get immersed in the sport. I become one with the ball.

I'm the same way. I try to forget about everything in life. Everything. Just focus on tennis.

Yeah, considering you don't move at all while playing, which is remarkable in itself, I would say your tennis is a meditation.

Some of us recommend it as a soporific, too, although habit forming with unknown long-term side effects.

Fellas, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new Federer polo at the tennis store, a spur-of-the-moment trip to the local brothel, or two bottles of good, straight Islay whisky.
