I've been reading a lot. As in a whole lot. I removed Facebook from my phone because hello? time suck extraordinaire and I've been filling the time I would normally be mindlessly surfing and reading stuff on Facebook to read actual books. I can honestly say it has done wonders for my mental health. There's something suffocating about being constantly connected and the news these days has nothing that resembles sunshine in it. That's not to say that I am completely cut off from what is going on in the world. I am just choosing to not be connected to it every.waking.minute. I scan headlines and keep current without falling into the rabbit hole. For me, for now, this is the best way.
Christmas is just over a week away and after that, with the new year, I will be around more. I am going to enjoy my hiatus for the rest of this month and re-evaluate in the new year.
