tonight's pick-me-ups

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

🤗 Boosting our serotonin. Now that the holiday season is over, we could use more of it going forward. Continue to improve your overall happiness by practicing more awareness, self-insight, and connections with others.

🍿 Snacking on the go. Best resolution we've heard so far: have your snack cabinet constantly stocked at home.
These snack subscription boxes are three steps ahead of us and full of yummies for every taste, like Tokyo Treat and Cheese of the Month Club.

🎙️ Popping the bottle. Tbh we'll miss the cheesy holiday movies, but in the meantime we'll grab a glass and
listen to Lifetime Uncorked, the funny and on point podcast on the channel's TV movies that we love to hate-watch. #WineWednesday

🌌 Summoning our inner boss b!tch. Aka your lilith sign that's pretty much the Reputation of astrology signs.
This calculator will let you know your lilith sign so that you can learn about your true, wild self.

P.S.
Build a castle, get your Bridgerton match 🏰

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

 TECHNOLOGY 
For when there's an app for everything ~ Which makes it super helpful to stick to our New Year's resolutions with plenty of options for habit tracking: "The cottage industry of habit-formation apps has tapped into different aspects of the psychology of habits in order to motivate users — whether that’s in the form of reminders, accountability, streaks, or coaching. And the reason why there are so many app options is related to [Gretchen Rubin’s theory of different habit-formation tendencies: No single style of app will work for everyone. So self-improvement-obsessed developers started creating their own apps to fit their own needs, and we ended up with dozens of different apps to sift through in the App Store ... Apps can give you reminders, accountability, guilt trips, or even a personal habit coach, but in the end you still have to do the work — you can’t app your way to a better self."

 SELF  For when your inner monologue has something to say ~ So try talking to yourself in the third person to hear it out (yes, really): "[A recent study] cemented the findings that when people use words for themselves that they usually reserve for others — their name, and third- and second-person pronouns — they are better able to deal with negative emotions, even in emotionally intense situations, and even if they have a history of having a hard time managing their emotions. Distanced self-talk also raises interesting questions about the ways that language influences our emotions, and highlights the importance of psychological distance overall — if you're feeling overwhelmed, see if getting a little distance from yourself helps."

 LIFESTYLE  For when you're ready for your plants to meet your parents ~ Last year found many back at their parents' house to wait out the pandemic. Turns out, it was a fuller house than expected: "Plant parenthood has long been associated with millennials and now Gen-Z — a cohort that fills its small, sunlit homes with avocado toast and a potted Monstera or two. But plants are more than an aesthetic ... When the pandemic led throngs of 20- and 30-somethings to move back in with their parents, their plant-parent status became an issue. 'You would have thought that I was packing away precious heirlooms,' says Olivia Petzy, who gingerly swaddled ceramic pots in towels and lined them neatly in cardboard boxes. 'I just could not bear the thought of leaving them or coming back to an apartment full of dead plants,' she says."

 WELLNESS  For when we've mastered the art of rest and relaxation ~ Or at least finding a few minutes for good shut-eye: "How do we do this? Firstly, by taking care of ourselves, and within this new parameter, there are some old favourites. The Art of Rest is based on a survey which asked more than 18,000 people which 10 activities they found most restful. Number seven was  bathing. Hammond’s chapter A Nice Hot Bath (which includes fun facts such as 'a layer of bubbles prevents heat escaping') should have us running for the tub. The launch last year of Lush's 'We the Bathers' campaign, with a short film exploring these intimate moments of self care, now feels like a moment of pre-pandemic intuition."
