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. 

Not Forgotten: Tulsa Race Riot

Next month is Black History Month. During this month, we are suppose to celebrate the accomplishments and progress that African and African Americans have achieved in a society that marginalized them. However, some pieces of their history is missing. There is an incident of American History that was covered up. It is called the Tulsa Race Riot. 

Haven’t heard of it? I didn’t either until this radio show. The events that led to the dissemination of a major portion of the city and hundreds of deaths all started with a misunderstanding between a white girl and a black boy

Wine Fraud: Conning the Bottle and the Drinker

I love a good glass of wine. A little bit of bubbly champagne or pinot noir and I am your girl. When listening to the Stuff You Should Know podcast while working out, I was intrigued that they were discussing one of my favorite dinner drink.  

I had heard of wine fraud in the past. Thank you Leverage! However, I thought it only happened once in a blue moon and only with notable vintage wines.

Girl Boss Radio: Get Smart in Marketing

Marketing has changed over the years. New technologies and innovations have emerged. New teachings and thinking have emerged as well. This changing world is covered in a recent episode of Girl Boss Radio with Melissa Grady, the CMO of Cadillac. 

The Mona Lisa: Stuff You Should Know

The Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the world. She was created by the master, Leonardo Da Vinci. I say this painting in person in 2017 when I visited Paris. She was a beautiful lady with a true representation of Da Vinci’s style. However, you can’t help but wonder several things while staring at Mona Lisa. 

Questions like who was she and why is this painting more famous than the others? Thankful the guys at Stuff You Should Know decide to answer those questions.

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. 

Learning About A Death-Row Detective

I have lived in Texas for most of life. Texas has prided itself on a strict conservative values. When it comes to justice system that can mean harsh punishments. In the state of Texas, a guilty man can be sentenced to death. Texas is not the only state in the United States, but it is important to the the setting of this story. In a recent episode on the Economist, they did a special feature on a private detective responsible for helping overturn death penalty cases in Texas. With the title of Lifesaver, you know it was going to be an interesting story. 

Creativity: The Wonder of Imagination

Creativity gives you the power to create amazing things. But if someone asked the question of where did it come from, I can’t answer that. I don’t think anyone currently can. I was listening to TED Talk Radio Hour when they discussed this very topic. 

Sleep Your Way to Better Health!

It seems like the easiest and obvious way to improve you health in the new year is by making sure you get your sleep. The kind of sleep that leaves you ready to conquer the day. When you can go all day with no naps. However, I can’t remember the number of times I have stared at my ceiling late at night trying to figure out why I can’t sleep. Who else is with me? So maybe it is the great first step toward having a healthier in a new year. 

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.
