However, like natural experiments, field experiments suffer from the possibility of contamination:

Tricks and Tips for Raising Children. If a man had these eight things to do in a day, this is how he would put them in order of importance. And honestly, everything after the time machine is purely optional. Every man is different but the odds are that most, if not all of these seven points, are fundamentally true for the man your are with right now.

I decided that the most efficient way to do this was to become a yoga teacher myself.
