- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT): I have never been a meditation kind of girl. My feet go numb after less than 5 minutes sitting on my legs in a Buddhist temple, making my ADD brain do nothing is next to impossible, and staying positive can be hard some days for someone who’s naturally cynical like me. On the rare days that I can actually set aside time to do it, I find it’s incredibly helpful. This video (warning: it’s long) does a better job of explaining it than I ever could.
- Shameless self-plug, but I recently wrote a feature on the TEDxSalford website that revolved around Stella Young’s amazing TEDxSydney talk that focused on physical disability. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should. It’s funny, I promise. This subject is deeply personal to me, and I’m thrilled that the piece is being received well.
- Stop, Breathe, Think: I have the free version of the app on my phone, and I’m currently loving it. You basically tell the app how you’re feeling on any given day, and it generates a few meditation options based on that. I love that it customizes the meditation options based on how you feel. I know I said I’ve never been a meditation girl, and that’s true, but I’ve read too much about the benefits of meditation to dismiss it completely.
- Last week, I mentioned that I was reading The China Study. I recently added another book to my reading list: The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau. I was lucky enough to attend one of his amazing events in Portland, Oregon last year, and it changed my life. How can a guy who runs a blog called The Art of Non-Conformity not be awesome?
So what are YOU loving this week? Let me know in the comments below!
