If you are looking for an outlet of escapism why not try good old fashioned reading. There is literally thousands of years of literature available to you and who knows what you might end up learning.

Plant Some Seeds in 2018
We all know the importance of trees and plants to the survival of the eco-system and therefore to the survival of humans. If you have a garden, plant some bulbs. If you have the space indoors you could maybe build an indoor utopia. If you don’t have garden or the space for an indoor garden you could volunteer at a community garden or park and help to bring more foliage into the world.
Turn Off Your Phone in 2018
Smart phones have taken over the world! It is true that life is made much easier and moves much faster now that we have everything we need on one device at our fingertips. However we are indecently engrossed in that black mirror, in particular millennials with social media which has proved to have detrimental effects on mental health. In 2018 make a pact with yourself to switch off your phone more. Whether it’s a couple of hours a day or only for a whole day at a time or even just when you are having dinner with a friend. Try switching off your phone and engaging with the people and objects around you. Live in the moment, not in the internet.
