tonight's pick-me-ups

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

⛰️ Grabbing the hiking boots. Being in the great outdoors can have wonderful benefits to our overall well-being and mental health. So lace up your shoes and try spending more time outside this weekend (safely, of course).

🗺️ Vacationing from home. See the world, inspired by
this breakdown of the most popular places people have been "visiting." Take your virtual travel to the catacombs of Paris or the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

🍷 Drinking straight summer. Best part: no need to head out to the bar. Have your frosé all day with
these must-try recipes to kick off pool weather.

🛁 Bathing in luxury. A long week deserves a long soak. Transform your bath situation into a spa experience with simple touches, including a bath tray and a few candles. #treatyo'self

You do make a difference. ✨

bedtime stories

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

For when all we want is the best for our loved ones ~ Hard times can make communication even more difficult. Here are suggestions on how best to talk with your family and friends about the struggles they might be facing: "If you are confident you’ve had a similar experience that they might want to hear about, maybe say something like this: 'I lost my mom to cancer when I was fifteen, and while I know I’ll never understand how you feel right now, I am here if you ever want to talk about losing a parent.' The key is to let them decide if the experiences are similar enough to bond over, and to frame it as 'this is something we can talk about later' instead of derailing the current conversation to talk about your experience."

 RELATIONSHIPS  For when you can make new friends and still keep your social distance ~ Maybe a group message with strangers is bold, but keeping contact with old friends and acquaintances can keep your spirits up too: "At a time when we’re told to keep at least 6 feet of distance between another person and limit contact with anyone we aren’t living with, I was somehow making more new friendships than I had in the before times. I wanted to figure out why it was so easy to make these new friends online right now, and why they made me so happy. Part of it, I know, is because I’m much more comfortable behind a screen than in real-life interactions. I’m a nervous sweater and a rambler. Making jokes online is infinitely easier. Given how much everyone texts now, making friends over text and memes certainly makes sense for me."

 FASHION  For when face masks are like sunglasses: practical and stylish ~ Real talk though, are masks the next accessory? Read up on what some fashion writers think about masks as a fashion trend: "For the foreseeable future, we will all be advised to wear masks in situations where social distancing isn’t possible. And with that, it’s created a new subset for many Americans: the fashion mask ... Steff Yotka, fashion news and emerging platforms editor [says] 'To go back to Sarah’s point about unease about fashion mask-making: I think it’s important to be able to make an aesthetic choice about what your mask looks like, especially now that it seems like we will be wearing them for a long time. But masks becoming a status symbol is tricky territory to me — we're wearing them for our health. Not to flex.'"

 FUN  For when we're bringing the party back home ~ While we love our quiet nights in, there's a lot of energy pent up over quarantine to let loose. So this weekend, live streaming DJs and convert your living room into a dance floor: "All virtual clubs are all-ages. For kids and teenagers, these live-streamed sets might be their only avenue to listen to some of the best D.J.s right now. They won’t be exposed to any drugs or alcohol at these parties, so there’s no need for ID. It’s among the cleanest fun around (assuming the songs don't have explicit lyrics). And for adults, the virtual party can offer a calmer and less performative way to dance with friends. You don’t need to worry about getting in, or your friends bailing on you if they find someone cute. But you still get to dance."
