Happy Saturday! You already know I’m looking forward to the weekend, but I hope you have some excitement coming your way as well. This week has been particularly rich in awesome posts from around the internet. Let me know what you think of the following stories:
- Sarah is a circus performer (more specifically, an aerialist) and offers an explanation of the side plank pushup as a great way to work on your own aerial abs.
- I heard Hannah Gamble read at the Dollhouse Reading Series and found her refreshing, frank, and funny. She’s blogging for The Poetry Foundation in honor of National Poetry Month and wrote a wonderful post on why the average fourth grader is a better poet than you.
- Self-care is a critical gesture of love and acceptance. It’s also a powerful professional responsibility.
- I love the idea of creating a Be Kind to Yourself list, like this one from Megan at Pink O’Clock.
- Sometimes social media gives you a peek into others’ seemingly perfect lives that makes your own feel less-than. Remember the purpose of the internet: to connect. Stop Instagramming Your Perfect Life
- Being kind to others is a phenomenal way to live. Here’s how to bestow a courageous compliment from Alexandra Franzen.
- Maribel of Food4ThoughtNYC always has motivational, inspiring posts about health and wellness. She writes here about why giving up Paleo was the best decision for her.
- I usually don’t look for substitutes for bread and biscuits–if I’m going to indulge, I go for it whole hog. But this recipe for kabocha squash biscuits from Real Food Forager looks too good to pass up for a savory weekend breakfast!
Hope your weekend is full of brunch and beauty.
