Another Saturday, and another few finds for everyone to get curious with reading. Love this idea of maybe taking one of these 7 per day this next week, break them up into one a day. Each one I’ve tried to keep under 10 minutes for reading time it would take to consume. Grab a coffee or your favorite beverage (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere 😂) and let’s dig in together.
- Love some great music. In fact, I have music tastes that I use depending on what my actual task is at that time. I learned that doing it often and doing music matches with the task overtime triggers your brain to be ready transition. It’s a habit in other words that’s triggered by the music. So for work as an example, I play meditative music to focus. 5PM I am playing energy because that’s usually run time or activity time after work. Here’s why we listen to new music: https://pocket.co/xd3Cbg?cta=1&src=ph
- We’ve had a LOT of time with significant others during our forced isolation. My wife would tell me to much. What we have learned overtime is to except who we each are. It’s the only way to make a long and healthy relationship last is to come to terms you cannot change your partner. To some extent, they will always be who they are. After all, isn’t that why you were attracted to them at one time? So, why would we want to try and change them? Here’s some things to think about: https://pocket.co/xd3guq?cta=1&src=ph
- Time alone, a lot of it for some of us. Someone like me who happens to be a ambivert can deal better then most. Just in case your super curious a ambivert has a unique balance of introversion and extroversion. But, that’s for another list on another day. Here’s why our time alone can be a chance to push the reset button: https://pocket.co/xd3lxd?cta=1&src=ph
- Talking about a reset button, we can do this with relationships too. I did a couple of posts this past week on kinship. Here’s a little of what I used in my posts and podcast on mending fences with others during this time: https://longreads.com/2020/04/06/lets-reset-a-career-social-distancer-mends-some-fences/?utm_source=pocket&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pockethits
- I’ve had a lot of weird dreams. I try to log them as soon as I wake up. I know that over time if I don’t I will lose them. Some, I’ll be honest, I want to lose. The morning when you first get out of bed I find is the best time to write them down. Here’s a little bit on why that is: https://www.instyle.com/beauty/health-fitness/weird-dreams-during-coronavirus?utm_source=pocket&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pockethits
- My posts from last week if you’re interested. Here’s the link for the podcast I put up last night. Comes in at 22 mins and some change. Listen while you take a walk. Here you go…The Thread Connected to the Sweater. Then the IBtP (In-between the Pages) post I did on Shared Commonality. Always appreciate my listeners and readers! Thank you 🙏🏻
- Today’s YouTube motivation is about why you should never leave your gift wrapped. You need to open it up and share it. I’ll let the 10 min explain. Hope you find it as motivational as I did. It’s your first 10 mins of the day. Let’s get it! https://youtu.be/VUD9gpKhw4E
There’s your 7 for today. Nice and early to along with sleeping in and that first cup of favorite morning brew-ha-ha. Thanks for joining me in curiosities! Have a great weekend!
