I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- Are you a goal setter? How does that work for you? In an article in Science of Us, Brad Stulberg explains how “Big Goals Can Backfire. Olympians Show Us What to Focus on Instead.“
- Ponder this truth: “Skinny isn’t beautiful. And thin or not-so-thin really doesn’t matter. What matters is how you feel in your body, regardless of what you weigh.” In Salon, Ann Hood explores this topic in “Skinny isn’t beautiful: Only after I stopped dreading my weight did I find true happiness.”
- For people in midlife this NPR article presents good news: “Olympic Athletes Prove That Older Doesn’t Have To Mean Slower.”
- “Blessings of a Cracked iPhone” by Christine Yu offered a much needed reminder to pay attention, put down my phone and be present.
