No particular requirements for this exercise but you may want to get some props when you re-enact the rule breaking.

  • Dance as if no-one is watching 
  • Share a secret with a stranger 
  • Pen 'that' letter you've often thought about, but never written - and send it! 
  • Ask a question you've wanted to ask but never felt brave enough
