How to create solitude in chaotic times
- Wake early. Wake slowly. Take your time. Think. I write in the mornings in a quiet room with no distractions - no TV, no radio, no clocks, no noise: just me and my thoughts and the words on the page.
- Schedule time to read.
- Go for a walk.
- Exercise. I exercise everyday. Sometimes I go to the gym. Sometimes I do push- ups, squats, and pull-ups in the park.
- Get rid of distractions.
