T: 3 Healthy Living Tips
☀️ Don't know how to manage stress without eating? Try self-soothing through your senses.
- What can you feel?
- And what can you hear?
- What can you see?
- And what can you smell?
☀️ Instead of: I am going to stop mindless scrolling at night
Let's try: I am going to *insert new activity* at night
☀️You don't have to do it all – it's okay to ask for help
B: 2 Book Recommendations
📚For Self Improvement (on Emotions): Choose Wonder Over Worry by Amber Rae
I just love this book for learning about emotions, what they tell you, and the first steps to managing them. This book is one that you don’t have to read from start to finish but can act as a resource for you to pick up whenever you need. Not to mention, the illustrations in this book are EVERYTHING! If you want to learn more about emotions, def recommend this as your next read!
📚For Fun (Historical Fiction): Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. Some people didn’t love the documentary-style writing, but I found it extremely captivating. I felt like I was reading about a real band (which I guess makes sense with it being historical fiction). If you don’t enjoy the writing style in this, I have heard the audiobook is AMAZING.
Quick Synopsis (from Amazon):
Everyone knows DAISY JONES & THE SIX, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.
Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ’n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.
Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.
Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.
