Happy Monday! I hope you’re Monday is filled with productivity and coffee. I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you what is currently catching my attention. There are two things that keep popping up in my daily life, so I figured I would share what they are and why.
This Youtube video about How the Ideal Body Has Changed throughout history. I first saw this video sometime last week, but it keeps popping up on my newsfeed. I really loved this video when I saw it because I think it illuminates just how much the concept of an “ideal body” is a social construction that is malleable and fleeting. We are all beautiful in our way, and I think the more important thing to focus on is not the ideal body, but loving yourself on the inside. People can work toward achieving an external ideal, but if they are unhappy with the internal, well, it’s a rather hopeless cause. I hope you take a few minutes to watch this video! It really has a great underlying message.
My go to studying playlist! When I’m reading lately or working on anything school related, I immediately start this playlist. Whoever thought of the Mood playlists section on Spotify is a genius. Like honestly, they’re the greatest thing ever. The other Mood I use a lot is Focus because it has a lot of quiet or classical music, which is great for hardcore studying.
What’s on your mind?
