tonight's pick-me-ups

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

🛋️ Recreating our work desks at home. Your current office probably looks like a couch, a kitchen table, or a bed, which can definitely cause discomfort. These tips can help save your back while WFH, like following the 90 degree rule and doing standing work.

👁️ Putting on the eyeliner.
New season, new makeup trends. Pull out your pastel eyeshadow palettes to complement the warmer weather and trying for dewey, sun-kissed skin.

🍓 Following the harvest. Eating fruit based on what's in season means you'll get the best of the bunch — ripe, juicy, and perfectly sweet.
Here's your guide to summer fruits with inspo for strawberry not-so-short cake and chocolate-dipped cherries. #noms

💤 Catching zzz's. Melatonin and magnesium both help with falling asleep and staying asleep.
Learn about the differences to figure which, if any, is right for you. #goodnight

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

 TRENDING  For when you're caught in a cycle of 'doomscrolling' ~ The term was coined on Twitter in 2018, but is ever-prevalent today: "The word’s apocalyptic tone feels accurate to Karen K. Ho, a reporter at Quartz who began tweeting out nightly reminders that encourage people to stop doomscrolling starting in early April. 'We’re in a pandemic that is historic. The recession is historic. And we have these protests that are historic,' she says. 'It’s about feeling a loss of a sense of active control over the time you’re spending gathering this information or observing content. I think calling it ‘doom’ is pretty fair' ... For many of us, the habit of doomscrolling hasn’t stopped. When the protests began, Ho says she asked her followers if she should continue tweeting her reminders to stop doomscrolling, and dozens responded, imploring her to continue. Now, others who similarly tell people that it’s okay to stop doomscrolling have popped up on Twitter."

 WELLNESS  For when you're looking for your inner yogi ~ Whether you've been wanting to try the practice or have been a yoga guru for years now, tuning into Yoga with Adriene on Youtube is pandemic content perfect for all: "We do three breaths together, and ... namaste. That’s it. Six minutes has felt like three. I immediately click onto 'Day 1: Recognize.' What I end up recognizing, while attempting a half-lotus and gazing down onto my prayer hands, is that my thighs are so pudgy, I’d popped a seam in my legging—quite a feat for fabric that’s ostensibly elastic. But by 'Day 5: Soften,' I’ve forgiven myself and simply changed into larger, airier (pajama) pants. 'Home' will turn out to be the double-espresso-with-8-ounces-of-whipped-cream-topped-with-bacon yoga, but I don’t know that yet ... With the soothing voice, the cozy living room, the comfortable togs, she exists in a small, glowing snow globe, out of time, where everything is always okay."

 INTERESTING  For when we're not invincible ~ The simple task of wearing a mask in public has proved difficult for many men, creating somewhat of a gender divide in mask wearing according to recent research: "If you’ve suspected there are more women wearing masks than men, you’re correct. According to a recent study, men are less likely to wear face masks than women despite being more vulnerable to coronavirus. In New York City, where coronavirus has killed more than 17,000 people, men are dying of COVID-19 at twice the rate women are. Yet, walking around, it’s hard not to wonder if they’re living in an alternate universe where having a Y chromosome makes you invincible to disease ... And while it’s baffling enough to wonder why any able adult would choose not to take this simple action during a global pandemic, it’s even more perplexing why someone wouldn’t wear one when their partner chooses to do so."

 CULTURE  For when an improv group therapy show feels more like real life than, well, life ~ The webseries Group aired on YouTube honestly just in time: "Group represents a shift in the micro-genre. Viewers have seen many types of therapists on-screen over the years: foppish (Kelsey Grammer in Frasier), formidable (Lorraine Bracco in The Sopranos), lovable (Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting), hyper-manipulative (Maggie Siff in Billions). Other than grief or PTSD support groups (Dead to Me, Homecoming) and countless AA meetings, though, the group-therapy dynamic has rarely been explored ... Group’s sweet spot is a dynamic that many of us can only fantasize about right now: intimate, up-close relationships with people we aren’t related to. In most group therapy settings, patients are advised not to touch one another and instead encouraged to articulate their feelings and desires aloud to the room, with the aim of processing emotions through words."
