How To Weekend Like A Pro By Life Kit

One of my favorite podcasts to listen to is Life Kit. I have reviewed some awesome episodes that they have produced like Sleep Your Way to Better Health! and Life Kit: Guide to Studying and Happiness in College. They recently came out with another amazing episode that I recommend for anyone looking to hack life.

We are all trying to maximize the weekend. We work hard during the work week so why shouldn’t we try to maximize our days off? Life Kit developed this episode around how to have a good weekend. Having a good weekend is important to our health and lifestyle so why not work on achieving it! The tips provided are all backed by the experts so you can trust the tips listed to possibly work. 

Language of Transformation: Oprah Edition

This is my year that I have been focused on transforming myself into a happier and healthier version of myself. One way I hope to do that is through changing the way I speak about myself. It seems like an easy goal for the new year, but it is hard. I know that I am not alone on this goal when I cam across Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations with Bishop T.D. Jakes. And you know that if Oprah promotes it then it is going to be amazing. 

The Gifts of Imperfection: Wholehearted Life

A goal of the new year for me has been to work on being happier and healthier. One of the ways I hope to accomplish that goal is by learning how to erase the negative voice in my head. But it is easier said than done when it comes to erasing self doubt. 

Then I was gifted with the book, The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown. She has been featured on Oprah and TED Talks. She is a writer and research. She breaks down the shame and fear we face in life such as the fear of standing out or being enough. She explains the psychological why along with how we can reverse the process. In the end, readers and practicers of these steps will move toward what she calls “wholehearted living” or simply embracing who you are. 

Emotional First Aid: Healing the Heart

We prepare ourselves on how to treat our physical injuries. We take first aid for serious injuries and teach our children on where are the bandages for their scrapes and cuts. However, we fail to prepare ourselves for loneliness, rejection, and depression. We fail at creating tools in our lives that would help us during these challenging times. It has become a such apparent issue in our society that it has become a topic for research for Guy Winch. He addresses his research during his local TED Talk called Why we all need to practice emotional first aid. 

Simple Habit: Happier & Healthier

I have a goal of a happier and healthier life this year. One of the ways I have been working towards this goal is to practice mediation. Mediation is practice best done under the guidance of a someone who builds these practices with a purpose behind them. However, what I may need from my mediation changes so I was looking for practices that could change with what I need. I also am a low on funds college student so if I could use a service that was free it was all the better for me.
