tonight's pick-me-ups

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

💼 Reinventing our careers. 2021 will be the year of *you* so take control of your professional life by learning a new skill or scrolling through LinkedIn at the journeys that others took to get into roles you want.

🍵 Drinking the good stuff. Cutting back on coffee for the new year?
Sip on herbal lattes to help enhance your mood morning or night. Matcha is great for a natural energy boost while ashwagandha helps calm your nervous system.

Being joyful.
Invite more joy into your home with simple design tips, such as adding a multicolored spectra to your decor and food or constantly playing music in the background for a joyful energy shift.

💆🏽‍♀️ Tending to our mental health. If 2020 taught us anything, it's that our mental state is fragile and vitally important. Your mental health is a life-long journey,
so keep working on it this year. #yougotthis

P.S.
No resolution, no problem. Your Enneagram has it figured out already. 🔢

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

 HEALTH 
For when you need a mental reset ~ Maybe 2021 should be about changing the way you see things, not the way you do things when it comes to health and exercise: "Dealing with our health, and working out in particular, can feel like a fundamentally lonely and even selfish pursuit, and is extremely emotionally charged thanks to all of diet culture. I know a lot of people who are borderline ashamed to work out, let alone talk about it to anyone else. I talk a lot about pursuing health in a vacuum, in part because I think a lot of the struggle is within ourselves. A lot of fitness communities and figures are toxic and suck, and they are continuing to develop new and backhanded ways to get people to second-guess themselves. So if you’re tempted to beat yourself down yet again with another secret-shame resolution, I’m suggesting instead trying to surround yourself to the extent that you can with a different mentality around health and just, you know, marinating in it a little."

 TRENDING  For when now's the time to be bold ~ Statement coats are the latest fashion obsession, and they're perfect for quarantine: "Big, bold outerwear is having a moment — again. Fans and pop culture consumers are devoting outsize attention to the winter wardrobe of celebrities and characters from shows like HBO’s The Flight Attendant and The Undoing, and Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit. This coat discourse is primarily driven by bored outerwear enthusiasts like myself, but in the midst of what feels like a never-ending pandemic, there’s something satisfying about watching a distressed character traipse around a fully functioning city in a glamorous thousand-dollar coat. Their world might be falling to pieces, but hey, at least they’re well dressed ... The statement coat, according to the Wall Street Journal, is this year’s equivalent of the going-out top, a flashy garment women wear to be complimented on and usually reserved for special occasions."

 RELATIONSHIPS  For when we're self-reflecting ... with friends ~ Looking back on 2020, there are so many things we have learned about ourselves and our relationships that we should remember and hold on to: "Female friendships have always been sacred to me, but living with women has been a formative feminist experience. 2020 became my year of female friendships in transition, with vibes resembling an ensemble coming-of-age miniseries ... What does it look like for women to fulfill each other’s spiritual, emotional and intellectual needs, to physically care for each other? For me, that looked like three not-quite-yet 20-year-olds figuring out adult life together: troubleshooting our dishwasher, helping each other negotiate our first pay rates, and sharing intimate, hours-long, late-night discussions about love and life."

 FUN  For when you're looking ahead ~ Kick start the new year with progress, social movement, and humanitarianism as we enter into the Age of Aquarius: "Patience will be essential during the first quarter of 2021, as we adjust to the changing cosmic tides. As a collective, accountability will be an essential theme in 2021 — not only holding our elected officials accountable for the change we’d like to see, but holding ourselves accountable for being that change as well ... Our relationships with ourselves and others will deepen significantly, and there’s likely to be less overt political strife around this time. There will be a larger emphasis on healing through sustainable, holistic means during this transit. On the heels of the first year of the pandemic, chances are, humans will have been making healthier lifestyle decisions and boosting our immune systems through taking better care of our bodies via the food, drinks, and media we choose to consume."
