We are not only what we eat, we are all that we consume. We are so fortunate to have so much information available, but discernment in what we feed our brains is paramount to producing good ideas, and to being open enough to understanding the experiences of others.
So here is where I hope to serve your whole health by delivering quality articles that educate, inspire, and articulate the human condition so we can stay in reality and curiosity. Plus art + beauty + LOLZ.
Here we go.
“I have enough jewelry.” said no one ever. Using jewelry to adorn and armor up is my favorite, and now there’s a chance that could include caffeine? This caffeine bracelet is close to proof that God is good. Full proof will come when they make it in rose gold.
Randi Zuckerberg (sister of Mark) says of business owners: Work, Family, Friends, Fitness, Sleep. Pick 3. I would include people with a job, kids, a modern life, etcetera. I’d be curious what you think about this one. I’m having so many feelings. Like furious (that I didn’t have this articulated sooner), vindicated (all the people I’ve disappointed), victorious (I’m doing okay after all), and all the impetus in the world to ramp up my discernment game. I’ve started writing a whole thing about it. Fingers crossed I finish it.
Being “nice” is like a performance. We need each other to be real, to be kind. This article is short, and makes some good points. Being too nice might be making your life miserable.
More cool studies proving that actual fear memories can be passed down from ancestors. Epigenetics is utterly fascinating and another argument for our profound interconnectedness with our lineage, and each other. I’ve been getting these articles from pal, Marybeth Bonfiglio, who is working on a lineage project you might want to know about.
This food diary by L.A. juice bar owner is exactly why we need to redefine health for ourselves. HAS THE BAR REALLY BEEN SET THIS FUCKING HIGH? She eats something called “brain dust” and her three year old has a favorite restaurant in Abbot Kinney. I eat some weird health potions but this is too far. Just no.
:::Picks 3. Eats a slice of delicious pizza. Ramps up discernment AND feminism game.:::
(It’s actually worth doing a google search on this one. The internet has had some apropos and hilarious feedback. For example, someone calculated that this day of food cost $700.)
Fear not. Whatever your troubles, you can now turn to these horoscopes by rapper, author, and expert astrological navigator, Kool A.D. He won me over with this from my Sag scope: “Contrary to popular belief, nihilism doesn’t have to be depressing. In fact if ur a depressed nihilist ur doing it wrong.” It’s like he read my mind.
If you’ve had access to information in the last week, you’ve probably heard that Beyonce made quite an impact at the Superbowl halftime show. Definitely a fan of all things beauty, art, and awareness, but something about that level of spectacle feels so slick it’s ick. When I read this it helped me understand why I wasn’t wholly sold. Staying awake isn’t easy, but it’s non-negotiable, guys. Here are some really thoughtful thoughts in easy list form from a black queer person about the Bey Slay.
Please enjoy your weekend. As always, I hope you know you’re never alone. And, also, I hope you get plenty of time to yourself. You know. Adore.
