As you are resisting the endless shenanigans in the news cycle, be awake to the ways - subtle, insidious and steady - that this is reprogramming your psychological, neurological and emotional circuitry.
Notice if you are feeling sensitive, anxious or strangely low-energy or depressed. And move to support the return of your own natural rhythms.
Schedule periods of silence and of solitude into your day - all social media turned off. Walk in nature without a destination. Just be outside in the world.
Seek out quiet activities like reading, listening to music, writing in a journal. Move your body gently - daily - to release stuck energy.
You don’t have to go to the gym. Dance a little in the kitchen. Park farther from the office building and walk. Move without any goal - not to get in shape. Not to lose weight. But to feel movement moving you.
Finally, practice kindness.
I don’t mean that you should be nice. I mean that the native human response to other living beings is open and generous. In a sociopolitical climate such as we live in, kindness must be cultivated. As a practice.
All of these small things add up to help you reclaim sovereignty over your own thoughts, emotions, movements and behavior.
This, too, is resistance.
