tonight's pick-me-ups

Things we're doing to unwind and get cozy before bed tonight: 

🧠 Living in the moment. Daydreaming is a wonderful time to reminisce and reflect, but the negative thoughts can overpower.
Let go of that mind-wandering and truly stay present.

🎙️ Laughing it off.
These *funny* podcasts add a little light while you clean your kitchen for the umpteenth time. Brb tuning into With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus and Sooo Many White Guys.

🍷 Pouring one for Wine Wednesday. Happy hour doesn't need to end during social distancing thanks to
several alcohol-specific delivery services. Btw Drizly will even deliver the mixers and snacks.

🧶 Needling something new. Hobbies help us spend less time on our phones and especially from getting overwhelmed by the news.
Try a little more arts and crafts with DIY kits that are perfect for beginners.

bedtime stories

Reads when you're up late anyway. Here are tonight's round-up for every occasion:

For when you just want to watch TV and paint your nails ~ SAME. Social media is now full of people excelling at this WFH thing and *optimizing* quarantine time to get their lives together. For some of us, it's honestly exhausting. "Yo, Insta fam, I’m really happy for you. Imma let you finish your self-care bread making, closet organizing, and living room yoga, but Cheetos and sleeping 12 hours a day are totally acceptable ways to quarantine too! Right? No? When did everyone get their shit together post-apocalypse without me? ... To my friends who put on makeup to work from home or chef up a healthy breakfast to feel less crazed, I love you! Do your thing! But don’t be mad if I mute you for the next month or two. In the meantime, I’ll be working from my wine bottle fort rationing my Cheez-Its."

 HEALTH  For when 'Quarantine 15' is the new 'Freshman 15' ~ With so much to be worried about right now, calories and weight gain are not it. So enjoy a second glass, bake some comfort cookies, and eat them up. "Now more than ever, we need to be kind not only to others but also to ourselves. Do what feels safe to you. Do what feels good. Maybe it’s making chocolate chip pancakes from scratch for dinner. Maybe it’s going for a nice, leisurely socially distanced jog in the park. Maybe it’s cozying up on the couch and watching nothing but Vanderpump Rules for the entire day. There’s no 'right' way to cope with this unprecedented, truly bizarre moment in time. So instead of judging ourselves by how many miles we run or the number of salads we consume, let’s treat ourselves with empathy. And eat a homemade slice of bread or three — because that helps too."

 RELATIONSHIPS  For when you're ready for a Love is Blind audition ~ In case you're wondering, this is how likely you are to fall in love or out of love in the time of self-quarantine. "Who’s still swiping on the dating apps? ... Curious about the inner-workings of dating apps in a moment of widespread social distancing, I lifted the hood of the thing and was surprised by how much I found percolating inside. Thanks to a robust survey conducted with [ManRepeller] community members between 20 and 40, and an inside job DMing people interview questions on my app of choice, I gathered some intel: everything ranging from surefire pick-up lines to quarantine dating tactics and musings on how the state of dating might evolve in the near future."

 SLEEP  For when keeping a bedtime and melatonin aren't quite cutting it anymore ~ New gliders for under the bed can help rock you to sleep like a baby every. single. night. "It may sound a little out there, but science has revealed that being rocked to sleep is just as beneficial for adults as it is for babies. In two studies published in the journal Current Biology, researchers found that people who took a nap in a bed that swayed fell asleep faster and slept better than those who snoozed in a regular bed. People who were rocked to sleep also seemed to boost memory consolidation, the process by which memories are 'cemented' into the brain." Happy dreaming.
