tonight's pick-me-ups

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

🥳 Mixing over Zoom. Holiday work parties may be virtual this year, but they don't have to suck. Keep things fun with an online gingerbread house making party or wine tasting. Remember to both entertain and appreciate your co-workers.

🍪 Feeding our sweet tooth. While pie is the traditional Thanksgiving dessert,
we're making a case for cookies this year! Pecan brittle bark and cheesecake thumbprint cookies definitely won't make you feel guilty going back for thirds.

🧵 Gifting our creativity. 'Can't buy it? DIY it!' according to crafting queen
Francesca Stone (@fallfordiy). Follow her simple and beautiful craft ideas that can inspire your own DIY holiday gifts.

👋 Saying 'no' to stress, which is one of several
small ways to feel okay right now. Start tomorrow with scheduling multiple one-minute breaks throughout your day to keep stress from building up.

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

 CAREER 
For when you're reaching for the reset button ~ As the pandemic and WFH continues on, it's tempting to lose focus and chill in your PJs all day. Stay engaged even when you're not feeling it: "Your best approach has to do with how you think, how you spend your time, and who you’re with. To be and stay engaged during a global pandemic, you need resilience. Resilience is about three things: understanding reality, making sense of reality, and improvising your response. A key part of this capability is in how you think and frame your situation. Empower yourself. Rather than blaming circumstances outside of your control, consider your responses to the situation and your capabilities. Resist the urge to make statements like 'I’m just not feeling it because after all there’s a global pandemic' or 'My job just isn’t all I want it to be right now.' Remind yourself about all your professional milestones, and take responsibility for your motivation."

 TRENDING  For when aesthetics don't matter ~ Is TikTok undermining the current beauty industry by promoting inexpensive and accessible products that aren't quite as 'cute' as their Instagram counterparts?: "The beauty products I saw TikTokers constantly gushing about were most definitely not the ones I was used to seeing in 'shelfie' photos or in my own bathroom. Growing up with print magazines and, later, YouTube and Instagram, I was trained that beauty products needed to be expensive, beautiful, and covetable enough to be proudly displayed on a shelf or social media. But TikTok tells a different story: The products that rack up the most views — usually in the millions — are affordable, unassuming, and — dare I say? — basic ... Even though [TikTokers] prioritize cost and ingredients, at the end of the day, they all viewed skin care as some form of self-care. They're just a little more discerning."

 WELLNESS  For when mood rings are legit ~ Well, kind of. Chromotherapy, or color therapy, uses color to help uplift your mood: "Everyone can benefit from exposure to color. If you don’t have the ability to book a chromotherapy treatment at this time, Dr. Gabrielle Francis says that wearing color to reflect a mood or to balance a bad mood can be a game-changer. Not sure how the color of your clothes can count as color therapy? Know this: Color therapy has been used under the radar for decades and centuries, permeating everything from the lighting in restaurants to the lighting in spas, doctor’s offices, and other settings. Color therapy has been used to entice appetite, decompress, and focus emotions of patients and clients for hundreds of years. So don’t overthink it; just embrace the colors of your choosing and watch how they make your energy and mood unfold in your daily life."

 CULTURE  For when funny can be serious too ~ Comedy in books is often overlooked, but they can offer the most insightful reads of all: "What could be more complete – what could be better value? – than tragedy and comedy entwined? People make the mistake of thinking that the opposite of funny is serious and thus if you’re funny you can’t be serious and vice versa. The opposite of funny, of course, isn’t serious; the opposite of funny is unfunny. Funny and serious are symbiotic because humour is not just an example of intelligence but a form of intelligence. It requires lateral thinking; making unexpected connections; being one step ahead of the reader. To put it another way, successful comedy in a novel does not consist of jokes layered on top but is woven into the fabric. Comedy, as we’ve seen, is the very stuff of literature."
