Dear Readers, I feel like a fraud.

Dear Readers,

It's been a rough week.

Actually, it's been a really rough month and a half.

I haven't been unemployed this long in years. And the last time I didn't have a job and a structured routine, I was in a really dark place. My mental health was at an all time low back then and I used to think about suicide, or just giving up, a lot.

I feel like I've been slipping back into that head-space again. And I'm not sure how to stop it.

Being unemployed and stuck at home can give you a lot to think about and reflect on what you want out of your life.

Films:
1. Fifth Element
2. Lost in Space
3. I, Robot
4. Star Wars

6. Alien
7. 2001, A Space Odyssey
8. The Man Who Fell to Earth

Books:

2. Ender's Game
3. Frankenstein
4. The Time Machine
5. Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep?

It's 2019 and unless you've been on a digital detox or holed away in some cozy cabin off the grid, you know there's a lot of toxic and negative energy in the world these days. We encounter it everywhere - at work, at the coffee shop, and even online in our social media communities.

While it may be difficult to avoid coming into contact with any negative energy, there are steps we can take to protect ourselves and our homes from all that unpleasantness. Here are four easy things anyone can do:

1. Clean & Ward your Space

Clutter tends to put most of us into a real funk, so the first step to making sure our energy is clear and untainted is to clean up our living space. Do a little Marie Kondo'ing if you haven't yet, but it's also important to make sure that you're wiping down and disinfecting the surfaces in your home.
