This past week I’ve heard from a number of friends who wondered about my “stay sane routine.” With the first 100 days of this new presidency fast approaching – a milestone we’ve been hearing about since January 20th – it seemed like a good time to take stock.
In thinking about it I realized that I do have a daily and weekly routine – a practice of sorts – to stay the course in my resistance and keep my spirits up. Here’s the basic routine (minus many of the daily/weekly maintenance activities like doing laundry, grocery shopping, paying bills and sleeping.)
- I get a text from Daily Action – sometimes I do what they suggest, sometimes I don’t.
- I check the blog One Thing You Can Do.
- Exercise and/or spend time outside – especially now – the garden calls me and you can smell the earth coming to life. Soon there will be veggies and lots of flowers.
- Work – (if you want to know what this is, contact me)
- Cook/eat delicious and beautiful food. Best Bistro in town is in our kitchen.
- Talk to people I love.
- There’s a sign in my office that says Do Something Creative Every Day and I try hard to follow that advice. Plus, it’s fun.
- Do something for someone else.
