  • Just thought I'd let those of you following me know that I'll not be around here much going forward. I haven't really been here much since the holidays, and that's likely how things will be in the foreseeable future - the occasional comment, but consciously avoiding getting into long-winded discussions (yeah, no doubt a relief to quite a few people!). Hope 2022 treats you all well. And take care of yourselves!

    And it seems these forums tick too many of the right boxes (subjects that interest me coupled with a lot of opinions I disagree with :p ). So I've come to realize that for the sake of my mental health and happiness, taking a step back is the only sensible thing to do. The paradoxical thing is that the in-depth discussions is what I'll miss the most, but also both a cause and symptom of the problems.

    Many moons ago, I took a similar break. Lots of nonfiction - fresh information to parse. Plenty of exercise and slow outdoor time. Creative endeavors. The trick isn't so much figuring out how to deprive the turbo-mode of its obvious paths, but to instead give it many different ones to traverse over time. Make it work for you and it does cool stuff.

    Yeah, I've joined a makerspace (though due to covid attendance restrictions they might sadly not stay open) and picked up a few old hobbies, and the non-screen time has definitely been beneficial. Has dramatically improved my ability to concentrate on work too.
