Get up at five, take your vitamins, get some exercise and wash the sand from your hair. In this animation, healthy living gets more and more unreal traits.

Get up at five, take your vitamins, clear your head with coffee and plain chocolate, work for a few hours, eat your omegas and flavonoids, get 30 minutes of exercise outdoors and don’t forget to wash the sand from your hair. This advice is given by a self-assured voice-over to the drowsy-looking protagonist in this strictly stylised animation. But can the fight against the sand really be won?
