Every once in a while, the internet can feel like a source of shame or just a waste of time. When I’m tempted to throw in my virtual towel and bail on the technology world, I challenge myself to find something uplifting and useful online. Here’s what I’ve found around the web this week.
- I am endlessly fascinated by the interworking practicalities of marriages. This article provides an enthralling peek into how physical abilities, gender norms, societal pressures, and empathic conversations factor into the emotional labor of running a household.
- Have you ever heard of vulnerable-child syndrome? I hadn’t before reading the latest New Yorker parenting article. Worth the read.
- As I’ve mentioned here before, I’m working on shifting my body image and fully integrating intuitive eating into my life. A steady morning routine, as outlined in this podcast, is making a world of difference.
- A few celebrity theramonials have made headlines this week and I’m loving every single one.
- The Feel Wheel is one of the most effective mental health tools out there – and it’s so accessible, too. I used mine this week while journaling like the cool kid that I am.
- Made me laugh when my friend first sent it over a few weeks ago, and makes me laugh still. “She called on her extensive firsthand experience with psychosexual trauma to assist her client in finding the inner resources to cope with his boss making condescending remarks and failing to notice his hard work. “
What’s helping you this week? As always, thank you for being here.
