Here are some nuggets of wisdom and humor (two of my favorite things!) from April.
Or in other words, chance favors the prepared mind (which is one of the my favorite quotes). Seneca and Louis Pasteur were on the same page, centuries apart. Wisdom is timeless!
I'm a big believer in routines and screen-free time (and exercise, but that's a given), and Harvard is backing me up on all of them.
Speaking of children and teens, "...those who had structured routines, got more exercise, and had less screen time had fewer behavioral problems and fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression."
"Routine and structure is really important for helping kids regulate their emotions and respond to all the other chaos that's around."
This is a smart thing to do. I've been trying to remember to put my phone in airplane mode more often, even though I never have my phone in my room at night or carry it on my body. I believe in the future that, as with smoking, it will be common knowledge that cell phone radiation can cause cancer.
Adam Grant is a Penn/Wharton professor. He's right about this.
I love this from Elder Renlund. I've been working on clearing out the debris in my own life, and I know for myself the beneficial, powerful effect doing this has on me personally and on my relationship with my Savior.
I snapped a picture of this because the part after the semicolon cracks me up: "he's nuts" 😂
A funny meme from Percy Jackson that made me and Sam LOL (well, it made me LOL anyway). I definitely feel like this about certain things. Avoid, avoid, avoid; ignore, ignore, ignore!
I like Aladdin so I appreciated this silly joke.
I've been having to do a lot of this lately! 😤
I guess this makes me a hero!
Parenting my children as well as I possibly can so that their chances of a successful life are increased is one of my very top priorities in life.
I do all of these things for self-care (just substitute "hot cocoa" for "tea"), and they definitely contribute to my overall resilience and life satisfaction.
Beautiful cursive, an increasingly lost art!
