Get Lost

Last week a friend recommended a new activity: set out on foot or drive to an unfamiliar neighborhood, get lost … really lost … and find your way back without the use of your smartphone. My first flight instructor would often do this to me in airplanes. The idea is to regain situational awareness using a simple set of procedures and reestablish where you are and where you’re going. While locked down at home with grocery deliveries and broadband, it’s easy for our minds to get soft and lose resiliency. I think it’s important to find new sources of discomfort other than the 24/7 news cycle or the fear of what the future may hold.
