Twelve Things to Do to Help You Keep Your Humanity and Sanity

In our technology-obsessed, groupthink-culture, it is easy to lose one’s sense of humanity. We live in a world where iphones and online interactions have replaced personal, face-to-face conversations. We also live in a callous, fast-paced society that can easily leave many people behind.

If we’re not careful, we can lose a sense of who we are and what really matters. We have to be intentional about maintaining our humanity and sanity in a world which seems to be intent on taking those things from us. Listed below are 12 things to help you do this:

1. Take a walk outside and enjoy nature.

2. Take a break from your phone, social media, and all electronic devices.

3. Spend time with your family.

4. Spend time worshipping God by praying, reading the Bible, or attending a church service.

5. Listen to or play music.

6. Think original thoughts.

7. Let go of bitterness and forgive those who have wronged you.

8. Take a hot bath and read a book.

9. Drink a cup of hot cocoa or have some milk and cookies.

10. Schedule some downtime where you simply relax and do nothing.

11. Enjoy a good laugh with friends.

12. Write a poem.
