For example, let go of confusing the shape of your relationships (e.g. we spend this much time in person together; we label our relationship as…) with the relationship itself. Focus on the connection and mutual giving, not on the specific outline you or society is used to.

Happy Discardia, everyone!

2020 is giving us a big lesson in letting go of our habits and assumptions about how we do things. Take that as a gift you can continue to use. Open yourself to more options in how to fill your needs. Method is not the same as result.

Happy Discardia!

Take a few minutes to discard the the feeling in your body of carrying worries about the past and future.

Plant your feet on the ground, breathe deep and slow three times in and out, and feel yourself right here, where you are right now, with what is immediately around you. That's all you need to deal with in this moment.

You have this moment available to you to feel solid underfoot and to feel your body breathing. You're OK.

Do this as often as you want.

That might be as small (but still valuable) as leaving Twitter for Mastodon or as big as joining the Wall of Moms and Dads.

Integrity is the integration of your beliefs and your daily actions.

Choose a pattern you want to change, and begin those changes.

Free yourself from lower priority activities, distractions, and mental clutter to build the world you want to live in.

Work on your priorities, not what’s freshest.

What can you measure to see you’re making progress?

What floodgates have you opened onto yourself under which you’re currently standing, complaining about how wet you are?

Make your surroundings harmonize with what you’re there to do.

If you don’t want your life designed around certain actions, don’t design your rooms around them.

How can you approach this so you stay well and happy and unstressed?

Limits don’t prevent fulfillment; they’re merely the edges of the canvas. Make your life a masterpiece in the space and time you have.

It's not about just having less stuff, it's less of the wrong stuff and more of the right stuff.

If you pulled back from all the busy-ness for a week, what limits might that give you strength to set?

Be realistic about the amount of time you spend ‘keeping up’ with subscriptions, websites, social media, etc.

Spend 2 minutes setting things up so you can spend a nice chunk of time doing something you love this weekend. Schedule a date with your creative side!

Set a timer and make 20 minutes of progress on that thing that needs to get done.

If the channels you are tuned into have too much static, remove some of the static.
