Happy Monday. How was your weekend? Was it lovely? Tell me more.
It’s pretty easy to fall down the internet rabbit hole of health and wellness tips. (Hello! Can you hear me from down here!? It’s dark and there’s lots of rabbit food.)
I read a few things recently that I thought were really smart, whether it be because they were scientific or heartfelt. Since these select pieces rose above the noise, I wanted to share them with you.
If you’ve read anything brilliant or useful recently, let me know in the comments!
