Self Care

Laurie

[ 20/5/20 – What’s your strategy for boosting self-care, inspiration, and creativity?]

Self care:
Personal contact:
Time with Ailsa. Hugs, talking.
Finally allowed to play golf again.
Diet –
Pills – high dose vit C (2 x 7g a day), 1 x multi-vitamin/mineral per day, glucosamine, calcium.
Vegan – about half raw, organic where possible.
whlefoods – avoiding refined foods (sugar, alcohol, oils, etc).
Information-
Diverse networks, good sensemaking (Daniel Schmachtenberger and Eric Weinstein are worth the time).
For the last few weeks the Foresight Institute – Hive mind has been a 1.5 hour start to each day (6 days a week).
Practices-
Take time to enjoy the view.
Have pippa on the big screen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9XNKQY4tQc) – albatross chick at Dunedin.
Do something physical occasionally (otherwise I can be at my screen for 10 out of 12 hours if not careful).
Stop arguing with reality – accept what is, then plan to create a “what might be” that delivers as much security and freedom to all as possible.

inspiration, and creativity:
Nature – taking the time to observe it with all my attention.
Periodically taking the time to go someplace wild – with few if any people present.
Looking up at night. Every night I walk the dog before going to bed, and most nights I get to see thousands of stars, a few meteors, and a few satelites.
Taking notes when ideas occur – otherwise they can disappear just as quickly as they arrived.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
