My favorite finds from around the web:
• The power of taking reading breaks. “Fast Company recently collected productivity tips from several dozen top designers, and one of the recurring themes was the power of the reading break to re-energize and reflect.”
• Making our own magic. “I think this is part of the work of adulthood: recognizing that we are, largely, responsible for our own internal weather. We can choose – ideally, with wisdom and grace – how to respond to, and move forward from, what happens to us.”
• Your iPhone is ruining your posture—and your mood. “The next time you reach for your phone, remember that it induces slouching, and slouching changes your mood, your memory and even your behavior.”
What I’m reading this week:
I’m also resolved to finish an audiobook I started several month’s ago: John Gardner’s On Becoming a Novelist.
On the blog:
One year ago: The life-changing magic of tidying up.
Two years ago: Is that novel worth your time? Turn to page 69 to find out.
Three years ago: Books I abandoned in 2012. These were fun to look back on, because all of these remain on my TBR list.
Four years ago: Want to set New Year’s goals that really matter? Read this first.
Have a great weekend!
