Are you tired of scrolling through social media only to make you feel less than, or not enough? It's time to clean your feed. Unfollow those that make you feel that way. Better yet, why not take a social media fast as one of your 2020 intentions?
I have a few better (in my humble opinion) ideas for how to spend your "idle" time and that starts with my short recommended reading list for the first quarter of the year. These are books that hopefully will uplift and inspire you to make the best of what you are and what you have - because you ARE and you HAVE a lot! By the way, these aren't necessarily the latest and greatest, but they are well worth a read or reread. Mostly nonfiction, of course. Not that I have anything against fiction.
Here's the short list:
