Dear frustrated AfterStep user!

We offer full and sincere apologies for subjecting you to such an 
unbearable torture as using AfterStep in the subway. Subway trains 
usually create exceedingly high levels of noise, which is detrimental to 
a productive work environment. The fact that subway trains could be 
packed with mind bogglingly high number of people at rush hour, further 
contributes to a high stress level, that you may experience. We are 
sorry for the inconvinience.

As we are trying to satisfy our customers in any way possible and 
impossible, we offer this valuable advise to you, in order to help you 
reduce the stress, and possibly introduce you into a highly productive 
state of mind :

2) Proper breathing is essential: Begin by exhaling fully, then inhale 
on a count of 4 pushing down your stomach for a more fullfilling 
experience, hold your breath for a count of 8 alowing prana to reach 
every distant part of your body, exhale on a count of 4 making sure you 
  keep your anus tightly shut, and then hold your breath for the count 
of   2.
3) Use calming imagery: Close your eyes and imagine standing on an ocean 
beach, watching small waves slowly and rithmically roll ashore.
4) Do not consume any alcoholic beverages after 7 P.M. or at least 3 
hours before going to bed. That will keep you healthy and in good 
spirits when waking up in the morning.
5) Restrain your sexual activities, as they deplete your energy levels 
and may very well exhaust you both mentally and phisically.

We appreciate you asking us for help with your problems, and sincerely 
hope that above advices will help you achieve more joyfull experience 
with AfterStep.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further problems you may
