This is hard:
-Resisting the GOP's broad swaths of damage;
-Feeling isolated and afraid about their damage to democracy;
-Russia's covert propaganda attacks
-Being isolated by COVID

I'm trying to compartmentalize & focus, going to rooms in my mind to be productive. Here's how:
These mind-rooms include politics, environment, home, gardens, health, relationships and a few others.

Inside each mind-room are the resources I have:
time, money, stuff I own, talents.

It's not crazy. Really. I'll show you.
Let's go into the politics room:
In the politics room, I have $$. Each week I donate at least $10 to help someone or something. Today I'll buy stamps to send letters with a SSE in them to support the Post Office.

This room has time, too, to spend as needed on emails, texts, phone banking. It adds up over time.
Every week I visit each room and choose the resources to accomplish something.

Nothing gets entirely neglected this way, which helps me keep my sanity because I choose when to enter the room and when to exit. I choose which of my resources get spent. #Intentionality #mindfulness
Isolating and resisting during the age of Trump are both exceptionally challenging.

Maybe they're forcing us all to choose to be a little more intentional about how we spend our precious life moments.
Fatigue is rampant.

I can't fix all of it, but I can do something. Every week. And by doing it this way, I won't lose myself.

That means I'm in this for the long race ahead. If you find ways not to burn out, you will be, too. Resisting together over the long haul is how we win.
Avoid the distractions of every crazy tweet. Sort every event. Do you want to add it to the to-do list on your desk in your politics mind-room? Maybe it gets shelved on the bookcase for future reference.

This intentionality helps me to put it somewhere, close the door & breathe
