614: Boot on Ways to Not Touch Your Face


Thank you Boot, and all the people that make deliveries, make it possible to get things. We appreciate your frontline services.

This trick for not touching your face I learned when I was an artists’ model for many years. I learned how to stay still for an hour, sometimes more, without scratching. It has come in handy. Possibly having training around, I don’t get to move my limbs unless told to, helps with impulse control too. I definitely have an on duty and off duty way of relating to this (and you bet I rubbed my face once I got home and thoroughly washed my hands)

Boot cares for others socially distancing.

This is Boot.

Boot has been through a lot, seen a lot.

Sometimes Boot pretends not to care.

During the COVID-19 pandemic Boot is buying and delivering groceries to others.

Boot: When my face gets itchy, I remind myself that pain is just information. I don’t think about the itch like I’m fighting it. I let the pain flow and be without judgement.

 

Thanks to all my patrons and a special big extra thanks to Mike Decuir, Lisa Jenkins, Kate Webb, Matthew Noe, and Erik Owomoyela.
