DUers--How do you stay sane/well in an insane/unwell world? [View all]

Don't get me wrong--I see plenty of reasons to be hopeful about our world and many of the people in it. We DID win the election, after all. However, I sometimes feel as if reading the news is a moral hazard. Nothing is being done about global warming, the corporations seem to have some bizarre control of our government, the economy is sputtering along and although strides have been made in the healthcare system (Thank you President Obama), we still have a long way to go.

I am wondering how DUers stay well, happy and balanced today. We're all plugged in. We know what is going on. Many people aren't. I'd like to trounce around in that denial cloud--but unfortunately, I'd rather stay informed--as I'm sure many of you choose to do.

So--what do you do to keep yourself healthy, balanced and thriving?

Do you exercise? Eat certain foods or avoid certain foods? Do you take vitamins or supplements? Do you hobbies that you enjoy? How do you relieve stress? Do you have activities that you engage in that are therapeutic? Socially, what works best for you--Do you surround yourself with positive people, or do you tend to seek solace when your stressed? Any special books, music or movies that you turn to when you need a boost?

Maybe it's because I'm getting close to fifty--I want to be well and do well. I want to stay physically and emotionally healthy. I'm wondering how DUers achieve that.

How do you take care of yourself, in this complex world?

I'm asking because I'm interested and because DUers are so resourceful and smart. I can't wait to hear what others have to say, and I know that many will benefit from any tips, tricks, ideas or insights that we share.
