#BreakThings: The Power of a Good Day
On Sunday, I woke up and felt amazing. Like, best day ever, amazing. And it led to such a productive day.
Chores were done. Errands were run. Blog posts were written. Work was completed. Skincare rituals were indulged in.
It was so good, that I spent the whole day wondering how I could re-create it. Then, I realized that the primary reason my day was so good was that I was excited about it the day before. So now, every night, I’m going to spend a few minutes thinking about the next day in a positive way.
Maybe I can manifest a few more good days with the power of positive thinking.
“Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match…” Now, I’m going to have Fiddler in my head all day. But regardless, this New York Times article about working with a real matchmaker in the age of dating apps was really interesting. I have a couple of friends who’ve done the matchmaking thing and loved it.
Admittedly, we don’t eat a lot of pasta, but this video of a baked pasta dish that takes dry pasta, tomatoes and feta from ingredients to a recipe in no time flat caught my eye. Maybe I need to try it just to see if baking uncooked pasta in the oven really works.
A great denim jacket is the solution to all of your fashion woes. You can toss it on over your athleisure or over a spring dress (or even over your wedding gown, not that I would ever do that…). This one from Daily Ritual is a great jacket at an even better price.
The title says it all: What self-care is and what it isn’t (via Psychology Today).
For years, a woman’s father told her a story about how Alex Trebek once lived in the relative’s basement. So the woman got a chance to ask Alex if it was true. The rest of the story is hysterical, and a little unbelievable.
I thought this was a funny way to bookend the advice above. In case you’re not in a positive mood today.
