Weekly Roundup: 10.12.19
Happy weekend! I haven’t shared a weekly roundup post in awhile because, honestly, I haven’t had much time (or energy) to do much reading around the Internets. It’s hard to share things for you to read when I am not doing the reading myself! But, this was a good week in terms of content and time and life just feeling like “normal” again, whatever normal means anymore. So, here we are. Consider this another attempt at getting back on a consistent writing routine.
I have little in the way of weekend plans and I am stoked. This morning, I took my nieces to their first hot yoga class and we went for breakfast after, so it was basically a perfect morning. Later today, it’s just vegging to watch the Michigan State/Wisconsin football game. Go green!
Do you have your REAL ID yet? If not and you plan to fly domestically after October 1, 2020, you need to add this to your to-do list or you won’t get past security. You’ll also need one to enter any federal facilities, military bases, or nuclear power plans.
This feature on Gabby Bernstein is incredible, too. I greatly appreciate her transparency in her mental health journey. On a related note, I really want to read her latest book, Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.
A recent study showed that a Mediterranean diet can decrease symptoms of depression. “The new study adds to a growing body of research that supports the connection between diet and mental health.”
An Incomplete Guide to a Happier, Healthier You is simple yet powerful life advice.
My friend Theodora shared a bit about her experiences with ketamine as a treatment for depression.
Cat pose is one of my favorites in yoga and it has a ton of awesome benefits for our bodies. Amongst others, “holding Cat stretch can release tension in the upper back and neck.”
It’s apple season, y’all! I don’t have an Instant Pot, but if I did, I’d probably make this homemade apple cider this weekend, since it really feels like fall here in Michigan. This apple crumble might need to happen, though.
Running a marathon in under two hours is a long-standing untouchable goal, but Eliud Kipchoge did it in Vienna this weekend and I am in AWE. I’ll be thrilled if I can someday run a half marathon in that same time frame.
Owning a dog can be good for your longevity. “Compared to non-owners, dog owners had a 24% reduced risk of dying from any cause; a 31% reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular-related issues; and a 65% reduced risk dying after a heart attack.”
The CDC is advising pregnant women to get vaccinated for the flu and the whopping cough.
My fellow Orangetheory lovers may know of Austin (aka trainingtall) from his Instagram account. He recently started a new venture, The Push Pace Podcast. He only released a few episodes thus far, but I think I am going to enjoy it.
I’m late to the game, but I also recently discovered the amazing Lizzo! I knew of her, but I am now definitely a fan. Her NPR Tiny Desk Concert is a thing of joy.
