@gargron @rysiek If you don't want to support BigTech, then don't use "permissive" licenses. Use AGPL. The problem is: Most people don't understand Copyright and licences. So they find their way to choosealicense.com which is curated by Microsoft Github. It prominently advertises the MIT licence with "I want it simple and permissive". This phrase sounds fair and good to most people. But permissive actually means "I permit BigTech to run their profit-driven thing with my code".
At our company Tignum, we encourage a process that helps to get the best out of our time off. Here is a tiny exercise/framework before you take time for yourself.
UNLOAD: your backpack, reflect and meditate over what you have done.
RESET: relax your brain, recover yourself, forget.
REFOCUS: 3-4 things I will focus when I'm back.

System looks great with #DuckDuckGo. It also includes @fdroidorg and #Aurora as an alternative to #Google, which basically proxies requests and let you install apps from there without a #google account. Brilliant.
