~ Mindy Kaling
tonight's pick-me-ups

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

💕 Finding the perfect match. These days job interviews are a lot like dating. Learn how to take chances even if you feel like you're out of your league. Also wear something you're confident in, listen, and don't only talk about yourself.

💸 Taking on tax season. Get ready for
a manageable and, dare we say, *calming* experience because taxes don't have to be a such a struggle. Hire a professional, prepare for your taxes throughout the year, and go over your previous years' returns.

🎙️ Solving crimes. Take your podcast experience to a whole new level with
Solve. This interactive true crime poddy lets you play detective with real life crimes for you to crack.

🌞 Prepping our skin. With an extra hour of daylight upon us, you might want to think about
upping your skin protection with a few tiny tweaks. Obviously don't skimp on the SPF, but also add in antioxidant serums and Vitamin E to defend against pollution.

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

 CULTURE  For when Girl Scout Cookies are always a good idea ~ Satisfy your sweet tooth with one of the most iconic desserts around when you reach for a Thin Mint or the ever favorite Samoa. Universally loved, these cookies are likely to stay in stock. "Welcome to Girl Scout Cookie season, when, as 10-year-old scout Isabella Robles says, 'everyone just freaks out.' Perhaps you stock up on the delicacies from girls in uniform outside the supermarket, or indulge in leftovers your co-worker brought to the office. Even if there’s not a Girl Scout in your life, pop culture and social media will remind you it’s that time of the year. In an era of endless and instant options, why are these cookies still so popular? In part, it may be that the Girl Scouts have cornered the cookie market. 'The impermanence of the cookies inspires people to get excited,' says Elaine Murphy, 32, a freelance journalist and troop leader in Orange County, Calif., and a former Girl Scout. Murphy compares cookie season, which lasts roughly six weeks, to pumpkin spice season, when Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts and other popular brands dole out special flavors for fall."

 RELATIONSHIPS  For when you're making time for intimacy ~ Not all love has to be romantic and actually sometimes the best kind isn't, namely platonic intimacy aka friendships. "Learning to be intimate in a healthy way takes time, and it’s taken me until now, at 25 years old, to actually be able to consistently replicate healthy, intimate friendships — and to learn how boundaries can be a part of that. One person I spoke with, Gretchen, intentionally creates systems to foster intimacy in her friendships. She sets reminders for someone’s birthday or for sending an important message and schedules intentional time for calls with friends, regular hangouts, or planning something special. Many people have specific ways they show up for their friends, and it’s always a conversation worth having to figure out how to be there for each other in ways that make each person feel supported."

 TRENDING  When you're feeling 50 shades of blue ~ Pantone just released 315 new hues, gracing us with colors we didn't even know we needed. "Today, Pantone announced that they’re releasing a new color collection that was 'strategically selected to reflect current and future color influences across fashion, home furnishings, interior, and product design,' according to the official press release. There are 70 new shades of the ever-popular color blue — adding to the already hyped Color of the Year, Classic Blue. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, mentioned that in addition to traveling the world, the institute listens very closely to its international audience and what people are asking for. 'In the blue family in particular, it’s such a universal favorite that you might think you’ve got every shade of blue imaginable, but maybe it’s just another nuance of a color that was this close but not quite there."

 WELLNESS  For when you need to listen closely ~ Many popular wellness trends have little to no data to support them, and are basically just over-hyped and over-priced ways to make us think we're working towards a healthier version of ourselves. Fortunately, that's not the case with sound baths. "It may seem like sound baths are yet another New Age trend, but sound therapy is as old as time, dating back over 40,000 years. Ancient Greeks used flutes and lyres to treat digestion and mental health and Tibetans used singing bowls for over 2,000 years for meditation purposes. Fast forward to 2020, and sound baths have hit the mainstream. They’re conducted in high-end studios in major cities and cost anywhere from $30 to $70 a session. Celebrities swear by them. Colleges provide them to stressed out students, and recovery centers use them for people living with addiction or trauma. There’s a ton of research on the benefits of sound healing, which is why many health experts say sound baths are a promising tool. They’re not a magical cure — nor should they replace standard medications or treatments — but the practice can have a tremendous impact on the mind and body."
