Mindful Monday 7/3/17

It’s time to bring some mindfulness to your Monday! These are some Mindful Monday links that are brightening my day, and I hope they do the same for you.

3 recipes I want to make this week:

Mac-n-cheese. I LOVE mac-n-cheese, but I never make it at home because it seems so complicated. This recipe is the perfect balance between healthy and traditional, and I think even my little siblings will love it.

Mint Chip Popsicles. Ā I’m completely obsessed with mint chocolate everything, so these popsicles look totally perfect. Plus, they’re a great excuse to buy some more Eating Evolved šŸ™‚

Tamales. I’ve always loved tamales, but never considered making them at home. This recipeĀ sounds like a bit more of a project, but it looks delicious.

3 forms of movement I’m enjoying:

Bodyrok Sculpt Classes. I sign up through ClassPass (use this link for 40$ off the first month of your membership!) and I have so much fun in every single class I attend.

Walking + podcasts. Sometimes I get really into listening to podcasts while running, but right now peaceful, slow walks are what my body is craving.

Yoga sounds really good right now. I haven’t taken any classes yet, but I want to check out The Pad, CorePower, and Karma Yoga soon.

3 podcast episodes I’ve loved recently:

This oneĀ about dating in 2017 is so chill and funny, it totally feels like you’re just hanging out with Christina and Addie.

Nut Butter Radio, hosted by Hannah and Holly, became an instant favorite for me. All their episodes are great, but I especially liked hearing their thoughts on sugar detoxes.

I’d forgotten how much I adore The Chasing Joy Podcast, but I recently started re-listening to some old episodes and totally loving it. This episode with Rachel Mansfield is such a fun and inspiring conversation.

3 blog posts I relate to:

Getting real about therapy is so important, and I love how honest Jess is in this post.

Give yourself permission to slow down and let go of the need for constant productivity during the summer. You and I both deserve to relax, but sometimes its hard to let go of the pressure to be busy all the time.

I’m definitely not going to run a marathon anytime soon, but I love the idea of taking life “one mile at a time.”

 

I hope you gained some inspiration from this post, and I’d love to hear about what you’re enjoying this week. Comment here or share your thoughts with me on Instagram!
