3. Take breaks from social media and do literally *anything* else.
While you’re reading those movement biographies, dip out of the chaos of social media for a few days. You won’t miss anything important.
Sure, you can check a trusted news source once a day to make sure there hasn’t been another insurrection. But otherwise, spend your free time doing anything else.
- Go for walks
- Listen to music
- Buy canvasses at an art supply store and paint something, even if you’ve never painted before
- Call up an old friend or family member you haven’t talked to in a while and catch up
- Volunteer at an assisted living facility or nursing home, once COVID subsides, that is.
I’m serious about this last one. Spending time with seniors will put life in perspective. Not to mention, the folks in such facilities love having people to talk to. Be that person. It will make you feel better.
