Hey Elphas! I know this has been a really hard few days for many given the state of the world right now -- from Roe to the impending shaky economy, it's not an easy time to engage with the world.
My roommate and I have a tradition -- when we're feeling really tired, mentally, of whatever we're engaged with, we'll say to each other "I need to do something with my hands."
It's our code phrase for "I'm not ignoring you, I just need to zone out for a little bit."
Then, we'll clean the dishes, cook something (bonus points if it requires kneading, like pizza dough), create something, or start mopping.
What is your version of "doing something with your hands"? What do you like to do to take your mind off of the current state of affairs?
