Such an interesting article, Noah. It just occurred to me that you're the youngest person I know who enjoys talking on the phone! Ha. That's pretty cool.

I definitely use my social media as a form of connection--mainly with other writers (Medium, Facebook, Twitter) and gardeners (IG). I also figured out turning off push notifications decreased my anxiety exponentially. I felt that I "had to" check the red number ASAP or...?? or what? lol. Definitely a lot of psychology at work.

Nature is where I find my stillness. It helps when the weather is nice. I go outside and gaze at drifting clouds, bees, butterflies, birds, blades of grass. It's wonderful!
