The annoying-but-effective way to use technology less and feel more calm

  • I journaled about some things that were on my mind.
  • I made a daydreaming list of all the furniture I’d get to decorate my house if I had an unlimited budget.
  • I paged through cookbooks, looking at pictures and thinking about recipes to make.
  • I cut blooms off our rosebushes, filling five tiny jars with roses and putting them all around my home.
  • I sat on my front stoop and looked out at the street, watching people walk by with their dogs.
