Recently, we got a New Year’s card that provided a welcome strategy for this anxious time:

Gardening…

letter-writing…

conversations…

music.

They are all analog practices of detaching from the negative, and connecting in truly restorative ways.

As soon as we think about doing them, we calm down.

Wise old Seth Godin put it another way:

More and less

More creating

Less consuming

More leading

Less following

More contributing

Less taking

More patience

Less intolerance

More connecting

Less isolating

More writing

Less watching

More optimism

Less false realism
