In this age of Trump, fake news, insanity and stupidity everyone needs something to make them feel better. Here are ten suggestions guaranteed to help:
- Plant something and take care of it; start a garden.
- Go for a bicycle ride.
- Cook something completely from scratch (and drink wine while you’re doing it).
- Do something to help someone, but do it anonymously.
- Do #3 and take it to a neighbor.
- Take a long weekend and spend it in an expensive hotel.
- Go for a hike on a quiet trail, early in the morning (and I mean early!)
- Write a letter (on paper with a pen) to a friend.
- Close all the windows, all the curtains, and the doors and spend a day doing nothing. Note: be sure to stock up with your favorite food for this one.
- Take a first step towards a long put-off dream.
Do not expect these suggestions to have the expected consequences, but if you delve into them in full guaranteed fulfillment is a certain consequent.
