Must-Reads of the Week (38)

"Abundance comes in all shapes and sizes" 
Hope your weekend is going swell. Whatever you may be feeling right now, here are some of the best things I've seen across the web in the past few weeks. 

On Food and Exercise: 

From Rachel Hartley: Rediscovering the Joy in Movement. Movement is more than your exercise regimen. It is in the pleasure of walking around a park, of dancing in your room, of taking a dip in the pool. 

Any food guidelines--even meal plans--can be too structured. Thanks for reminding us, Joyce, that eating intuitively is fluid.

This Grub Street Diet article from Mark Bittman and David Katz has been buzzing around the web lately. Even though I definitely don't agree with all the points made, there are some (eg carbs aren't evil, there isn't one end all be all diet, and juice cleanses aren't as amazing as they claim to be) that I'm really grateful they pointed out. PS the TLDR version if you don't have time to read the entire thing. 

Don't hate the dieter; hate the diet culture

On Mental Health:

50 more reminders for when you're feeling blah

Love Megan's analogy comparing life to bread. Don't rush the process.

Journaling for abundance--Thought-provoking journalling practice where you list ways your life is in abundance and how you're filling others' lives 

One of the best decisions I've made was to start going to see a therapist. Highly recommend for anyone quite honestly. Also vouch for these practical lessons one guy learned throughout his time in therapy

Some fun things and random stuff to ponder: 

I have turned to Unreal to satisfy my Bachelor obsession now that the season has ended. If you're in the same boat, fun, slightly disturbing facts from behind the scenes.

What's the most important factor in a relationship? Emotional stability and self-sufficiency.

"Contrary to popular cliches, they are not about finding our “other half,” or someone to “complete” us. Healthy relationships are built only with people who are already complete going in. "

Tips on going waste free 

If you're like me and are thinking of cutting back on your social media usage, what teenagers who have quit social media have to say.
