A Short Video. Why the Canadian side of Niagara Falls is better than the U.S. side.  

During the Legislative Session, my stress coping skills were absolute trash.  In the morning, I ate donuts.  At night, I drank Bourbon.  Not exactly a health and sustainable practice.

So as we head back to the office or continue to trudge through the WFH life, I wanted to suggest an alternative to eating and drinking our collective feelings: at your desk meditation.

I recently started this quick, simple practice, and was surprised by how much it could re-center a stressful day.  If you have the ability to move around a bit, I recommend Sarah Beth Yoga’s Five-Minute Restorative Exercise.  If you need to stay seated, Goodful has a five-minute guided meditation that you can do anywhere.

    Love the article on mansplaining. I’ve been thinking about the topic a lot lately, and the best way to handle it when one encounters it (as I so often have, in law/government/tech). Last week when I finally asked three men how to find a time for all of us to meet (because by looking at the availability on their Google calendars there did not appear to be an overlapping window of availability), one of said men helpfully shared with me how to use Google calendars to find availability, complete with screenshots. I’m fairly new to the company and simply told him thanks, that my difficulty was in finding overlap of the schedules, not in not knowing how to use the calendar, but part of me wonders if I should have let him know how incredibly condescending it came across.

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
