35-year-old yoga teacher/performance artist/blogger spends a year living according to the dictum of Oprah Winfrey: "With some of the things, like the clothes, in the beginning I was like, 'How dare she tell me what to wear! I'm an individual!'" Ms. Okrant said. "But recently, when I went shopping with my mom, I was really excited to fulfill some of the rules. I felt kind of proud of myself. It takes a huge amount of pressure off to be handed a spiritual path."
And yes, you guys, this is somehow from the New York Times and not The Onion.
