Some things that help me feel a lot better:
- Playing Rock Band, both on my own and with Lindsey! Leveling up at drumming. I used to do a lot of this, but we fell off for some reason...
- I'd better git gud at drumming, because I seem to have gotten volunteered to play drums for the not-church band...
We've been going to Sunday Assembly
, this thing that's basically church, but secular. Not, like, explicitly atheist, but pretty much church-for-atheists. Not sure if you knew this about me, but I used to really enjoy church; I *like* getting together with people to sing songs and hear an interesting talk. It's just that I figured out I didn't believe in god, y'know? But I used to be really involved with church, back when I believed; some of my best high school memories were running sound and occasionally drumming or playing horns for the band at rock 'n' roll church. Mom was in the band; they were *great*. Like legitimately really great music.
Anyway, we've been going to this Not Church for a year or so, and the music has been gradually improving with the Not Church rock 'n' roll band. But the current drummer is moving out of the country, and nobody else stepped up, so Lindsey seems to have volunteered me...
- We've been doing some yoga. This is *really* good for me, and it's good to have a thing we can do together. And I'm easing back into running.
I've been a little bit hurt; my tendons haven't been in great shape. I've been slightly injured off and on for a while now. Gotta run gently and gradually ramp up, so it's sustainable.
... so this is all things that I've done, at one time or another, but haven't been doing recently.
Important to remind myself: these are things that are good for me. Invest in doing them.
