tonight's pick-me-ups

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

🥔 Cooking with ease. Dinner isn't a whole ordeal with everyone's favorite, unproblematic
gnocchi in three-ingredient sheet pan recipes. FYI we're drooling over the mixed mushroom.

🏃‍♀️ Sweating it out. Or not at all? Sweat is finicky and might not say much about the way you exercise.
These are the signs to look out for to determine that your workout is, well, working out.

🕯️ Lighting up. Candles that is and with our phones of all things.
The new Bluetooth-enabled candle makes getting cozy even easier with a single swipe. #justmillennialthings

🛁 Taking a bath, for love.
These self-care routines for when you're looking for love will have you feeling like your best self *and* give you a little pick-me-up in dating world. #WellnessWednesday


*BONUS REC: Maev is wellness for city dogs and their humans. Having a dog in the city is a ride. We have holistic nutrition for your dog with vitamin bars and bone broth, and a NYC community that has your back. 🐶

bedtime stories

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

 WELLNESS  For when laughter is the best medicine ~ Laughter yoga needs no music or impossible yoga positions, just good ole giggles. "[Lisa Berman] starts out each class with a quick overview of what the practice is, what the benefits are, and what the 40-minute class entails. With that out of the way, participants start laughing. The 'ha ha has' forced and fake at first, Berman confirms. But, she says, laughter is contagious, and by the end of the class most of her students are genuinely cackling ... It's not as woo-woo as it sounds. The practice has not been widely studied, but the research that is available is promising, seeming to back up the mental and physical benefits of fake laughter."

 CULTURE  For when live action Mulan comes out in exactly one month ~ This is how Disney makes a princess out of you irl. "I wish I could tell you that I glamorously walked in and they said, 'We love you' ... I didn’t start as a princess; you’re not allowed to audition for entertainment in that program. So I worked at the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids playground first. It was glorified babysitting — you watch kids climb over this giant ant — and that was a lot of fun. At the end of the program, after three months, they held auditions for entertainment. They pulled me after the audition and told me I would be Pocahontas. Being half Asian and half white, that was a surprise. I put on the costume; they had me read a prewritten line. I’m from outside of Chicago, and they said, 'Could you read that again, and this time don’t say ‘Poca-HAHN-tus.” They took pictures of me, and they said, 'You’re in!'"

 MONEY  For when turning to the stars can help with your spending ~ Astrology makes great memes and funny happy hour conversations, but it could actually have real-life benefits like budgeting finances too. "Though it would be a bit foolish for us to say you should extend your gaze to the heavens to do all your financial planning (please, stay grounded when tax season hits) there is something to be said for gathering as much information as possible when planning a budget, deciding which markets to invest in, and planning the right time to buy property. It's all about working with that information, rather than expecting it to do the work for you."

 SLEEP  For when a good night's sleep is priceless ~ Literally. The sleep industry is a $70 billion business, but does any of it actually work? "People spend bazillions of dollars on some magic pill or whatever weird diet instead of just recognizing that maybe you need to eat better and less and move more — and it’s the same with sleep tech ... Whether it’s a tracker that you wear or slip under your mattress, an ambient light you set for specific times, or a robot to fall asleep to, technology can’t foster restful nights if you aren’t practicing good sleep hygiene — establishing a regular bedtime, avoiding stimulants like caffeine and disruptive foods before bed, and working out during the day to get more (and more out of) your Zzs."
