AN ALTERNATIVE TO ELECTION MADNESS
Tune out. Avoid the news. Go and vote on Tuesday; but wait until Wednesday to tune in and freak out. If Trump wins we will have an egotistic child at the reins of government and if Hillary wins the GOP claims they will start impeachment proceedings the day she is inaugurated.
All you will hear on the news between now and Wednesday is opinions and conjecture – it will destroy four days of your life with tension and anxiety. You will never get those days back.
If you have ever been interested in meditation this is the time to start. I recommend the book Buddhism Plain and Simple by Steve Hagen.
Some alternative suggestions:
· Watch old movies
· Read a book
· Break out some board games (how long has it been?)
· Take long walks
· Smoke some grass
· Start a new hobby
· Work out at the gym
· Write your memoirs
· Take a course at Kahn Academy – it is online and free.
· Move to Canada
Or just turn the fucking TV off and watch Netflix.
