Those drawn to new year resolutions can check out Louis Wise’s novel twist on annual self-improvement plans: Clean up your culture diet, with a 10-step “arts detox.”
The idea is “not to do less, but to do better.” The piece, from The Times (of London), is Brit-centric and not just a little snarky. But coming up with ways to add more arts and culture into daily life, and to make those experiences more meaningful, seems like a lot more fun than figuring out how to eat more veggies or squeeze in a 20-minute workout during lunch.
Me, I’m going to take his advice, and try to resist museum gift shops, concert T-shirts and souvenir stands …and put the money I save toward tickets for more performances.
Any resolutions you’re making about your culture diet? Share, please.
