Episode 049 - Three Ideas to Cope with Anger

I'm no less angry than I was last week but anger without a constructive outlet is dangerous. Besides, I got extra dark chocolate with 72% cacao.

I do want to add if you are being cultural assaulted or the news is too much it is very okay to take a media break. It is important to be informed but it is equally important to take care of yourself.

Nurturing is not a dirty word. Walking without an electronic device is even better.

I take great solace that I am, forever, culturally disobedient. You can be too; be selective in what you see, listen to and participate in. Ignore known idiots and take in restorative media.
