What's Getting Me Through the Winter (non-bookish edition)
Here's a few non-bookish things I'm loving and that's keeping me entertained while I hibernate
I've never really considered myself a Yoga person. I'm a bit type A and always preferred the high intensity workouts but I've started doing Yoga with Adriene and I love it. I just finished the 31 Day Yoga Revolution (though it took 40 days) and I feel so much more positive and comfortable. Plus my endurance - especially in my upper body is so much better. I'm going to start one of her other 30 day programs next month.
Some of my favorite videos:
1. Yoga for Digestion
2. 7 Minute Bedtime Yoga
3. Feel Good Flow
4. Pretty much any of the 31 Day Revolution
and there are so many more I want to try!
2. Safiya Nygaard's Youtube Channel
I kind of just stumbled on this one accidentally but I've been really enjoying it. I've never really gotten into YouTube channels unless they were for a specific purpose - workouts or trying to figure out how to do something specific - but I've had a good time watching some of her videos. She seems to do projects and some of my favorites are:
I Try 4 Different Style Boxes
I Bought an Entire Outfit from Instagram Ads
I Bought the First 5 Things Insta Celebs Recommended
I Tried a 10 Month Korean Skincare Routine for a Month
The videos funny and quirky and perfect for ignoring the fact that it's raining - again.
3. Thred Up
I'm obsessed with this web site. It's kind of like an online thrift store except the clothes look like they're in great condition and the prices are somewhere between thrift and consignment. The range of brands is amazing and I scroll through the new arrivals all the time. I'm making my first order later this week and I'm so excited.
4. Top Chef
I'm absolutely loving this series of Top Chef. All the contestants look so nice and they all cook yummy food. I love how low drama this season has been and that all the contestants seem to have genuinely formed friendships.
5. Good Belly
This is somewhere between a smoothie and juice texture-wise. It's full of probiotics and is supposed to do magical stuff digestion-wise. I don't know about that but I really enjoy my morning cup.
So these are some of my favorite things right now. What are you loving that's helping your survive until spring?
