Here are my general rules now that we are about a month in:Consume only enough news to get the big picture. This takes less than five minutes. I’m not kidding.Get outside.Shades, curtains open. More light is better.Keep working.Do not descend down any rabbit holes, especially COVID related. Most are wrong and you don’t know which are right. You just don’t.You don’t know.Reduce the number of variables you care about because the number that you can’t control have gone up. Stop caring about things you don’t control.

The moderating of news intake is key. Someone called reading twitter “doom scrolling” and I really felt that.
