December is a month that I usually feel the need to prepare myself for. I fiercely resist the pressure of mass consumerism, and as I’m not religious, I have to find my own meaning within this winter festival.
For a long time, I was holding onto my online life, quite tightly. In an experiment, I have cut back my time online time to include only the unavoidable, or the highly valued. Of course, it’s a work-in-progress, and my mindfulness practice helps me navigate the challenges.
