10 Ways to Embrace the Tangible
Recently, I’ve been struggling with prioritizing between that which is tangible and that which is digital. On my computer there are so many videos, pictures, songs, facts and relationships that it overwhelms me. When I choose to look at even one of these categories in depth, I often find myself frustrated and dissatisfied wishing that everything were like the ‘olden days’ because it is so much easier (or so I think) to sift through the tangible things in this world.
Anyway, I decided to be better this summer at embracing these tangible things, and so I’ve made this list of ideas on how to do that:
1. Take less pictures, and print out the ones I do take.
2. Buy a record player and only listen to vinyl after a certain time.
3. Make letter / note writing a more prevalent form of communication.
4. Write poetry on my typewriter more often.
5. Write, and think, at the diner more.
6. Read through old journals and post entries on The Story Movement.
7. Sketch instead of taking pictures.
8. List out the things that I love and why I love them.
9. Explore the outdoors more; discover new places
10. Hang out with more people and tell more stories in person.
