How To Be A Superhero In 7 Easy Steps

Are you ready to take the leap from ordinary to extraordinary? Did you watch Wonder Woman this summer and think “Hey, I could do that!” Is Halloween your favourite holiday? Well, you are in the right place. Follow these key steps and you too can reach your maximum potential.


Step 1 : Run Like You Stole Something.

Being the world’s number one saviour means you are on a very tight schedule. There is no time to smell the roses, not while you could be saving puppies from a burning building.  Joining your local jogging group will keep you off the couch and on the road to adventure. Use those getaway sticks!


Step 2: Get Your Guns Out.

While not all heroes wear capes, most heroes are jacked up. When you arrive at the scene, you want to instill confidence in your ability to handle any and every situation. Protein shakes can only take you so far. What you need is a superior regiment that will have your adoring fans swooning. For this, power-lifting is the best way forward. You will be bench pressing monster trucks in no time.


Step 3: Assemble! 

Every hero needs a squad for those extra pesky villains. Find yourself a group fearless friends that will always have your back, even when you forget their birthday. Whether it is badminton or ultimate frisbee, learning how to play well with others will ensure you save as many lives as possible. Every champion has a team to help them be the best version of themselves.

Step 4: Don’t be a hot head!

 Amid the chaos and catastrophe, saving lives requires a level head. It only takes one misstep to fall into a nasty accident. This is why attending a yoga or meditation class can be vital to maintaining a super mood in dire times. According to the Mental Health Foundation, practicing mindfulness canboost attention and concentration, and improve relationships’.  Aligning your mind, body and soul can make all the difference.


 Step 5: Be Brave.

Okay I’ll say it since know one else will; being a hero is scary. What with the constant screaming and fighting, and not knowing who is a sea monster and who is just had a bad hair day. To do what needs to be done, you are going to need a lot of practice. Expose yourself to activities that make your palms sweat. This could be anything from mountaineering to underwater hockey (yes, it’s a thing), so long as you give it your all.


Step 6: Engage in Fisticuffs!

But only to defend those in need. What truly makes you hero is standing up to bullies and defending those who cannot defend themselves. For this, you will need to acquire a very specific set of skills that will leave your foe bamboozled and, hopefully, apologetic. Why not sign up for a self-defense class? or boxing? or maybe dodgeball?


Step 7: Drink water like your life depends on it.

Because it does. Your body is at least 60% water. Stay Hydrated.
