Click – This post from Bridget at Money after Graduation is such an excellent reminder to keep an eye on your pennies – not just your earnings, but your spendings and savings, too. I wrote a little bit about the time-money balance last week when I fell back into couponing, but her take about how we’re never too short on time to keep track of our money is powerful reminder that everyone should heed.
Listen – Hi, my name is Penny and I’m a Serial addict. Since Serial still isn’t back yet (I know, I know, Thursday commutes haven’t been the same), I’ve been getting my storytelling fix from Lore. Aaron Mahnke weaves these compelling investigative narratives that explore the creepiest parts of folklore from around the world – vampires, witches, mass murderers, you name it – in perfect thirty-minute morsels.
Read – The Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf Dobelli is one of the most inspirational and logical reads I’ve stumbled across in a long time. The book is divided into small chapters that are all dedicated to the decisions we make throughout different facets of day-to-day life–from stocks and eBay to relationships and luck. This quotation is one of my favorites: “It’s OK to be envious – but only of the person you aspire to become.”
Do – Yoga is hard. Running is hard. Pilates, weight training, kickboxing. All hard. However, the most challenging wellness practice I’ve ever tried to incorporate into my routine is meditation. My brain doesn’t shut up. However, Calm has been such a helpful way to pick up the practice in manageable increments.
So Tell Me…What’s got you motivated this Monday? Do you have a favorite podcast? Have you been putting apples in your smoothies?
