Media Fast

For one week, do not take in any media that isn’t operationally critical. This includes news, social, and entertainment media. Do not listen to the radio, podcasts, etc. Don’t watch TV, films or videos. Don’t read newspapers, books or magazines. Don’t surf the Internet. Stay off of social media. Avoid being drawn into conversation about such things as well. Discover alternative things to do with your senses during this time. Take a walk, run, bike ride or swim, for example. Engage in authentic connection with your social tribe.
