Something funny, something educational, something inspiring. There’s a little of everything in the following five links I loved this week.
- I joked a few months ago about the amount of money and time I spend on my knitting hobby but this piece on Treehugger reaffirms my decision to make things by hand.
- For those rare moments I’m tempted to think my life sucks worse than everyone else’s, I look back at my diary from when I was a teenager and remember that 16-year old Marsha had it rough. Boys who didn’t call. A mother she hated. A football team that just couldn’t win. Rough, I tell ya. I’m so glad someone else’s 1990s diary entries were every bit as bad as mine. Shame spiral averted.
- “To begin, begin.” Just as I was lamenting my inability to get going fitness-wise, I’m inspired yet again by the once-a-day inspirational quotes at Clementine Daily.
- So nice, I’m mentioning it twice. Giving some repeat love to Maxwell Tielman’s “Practicing Mindfulness at Home: The Need + Want Equation” because EVERYONE should read this.
- Let’s face it: sugar is like a drug and we’re all just a bunch of junkies. “How Sugar Affects the Brain” is a fantastic TED-Ed presentation that explains why so many of us seem addicted to sugar. Sobering.
