How I learned to stop worrying and do nothing.

I am currently reading “How To Do Nothing” by Jenny Odell.  It’s a fascinating book and has pushed me over the edge of the social media globus.  Today I deleted my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.  I also deleted Google News and TikTok from my phone.  I had stopped looking at those sites a few weeks ago and nothing happened, except that I was a lot less stressed.  Odell is correct when she says that visiting social media sites leaves you in a state of low-grade dread.  In my case it also lead to a state of high-grade anger.  So…enough of that shit.

And now for something beautiful:

One thought on “How I learned to stop worrying and do nothing.

  1. Hey Vic,
    Thanks for the book recommendation. I admire your making the great leap and can relate to the dread and the anger you and Odell refer to, but haven’t been able to go cold turkey yet…
    Also thank you for sharing that beautiful photo. Nature is where the real peace is.
    Best,
    Regina
