Max was up all night crying about his foot (the fact that it sounds like “butt” when he says it becomes less and less funny the later it gets) and is now parked next to me watching Zootopia.
I still don’t like Zootopia.
Anyway, this isn’t about bashing a kids’ movie, but five sets of five cool things. Maybe I will do this from time to time as a way of covering up the fact that I am exhausted and want to die.

Simple Ways to Make Your Life Better
Turn off all notifications on your phone except for phone calls. Nothing shows up on the lock screen except calls.
Only check things on your phone in predetermined, intentional batches
Put your phone away in the evening (I always fail on this one)
Go outside every day, no matter what the weather is like
So there, an impromptu list of lists. Max, by the way, is now fine, jumping around and laughing. He’s only sick when it’s time to sleep.
Recommend your own 5 things for these lists, I like finding new things.
Looking for something more?
I write, podcast and make videos about living in freedom through mindfulness, intentionality, compassion, and equanimity.
