Tis the season, and boy, God knows we can use some serious chillaxing after this helluva year! Without further ado, here are some heartwarming activities for you to consider.
Watch Namaste, Bitches. I mean, that has got to be the best title for a comedic series ever. (I secretly fantasize about using that line in completely inappropriate settings, hah!). Namaste, Bitches is the Girls of the yoga world, an original series about the “underbelly of the yoga world”. If you have only the slightest bit of sarcasm in you, you will love, love, love it.
In that same category, this article convinced me to put Master of None, Netflix series extraordinaire on my (short term) to watch list.
If watching something is still one activity level too high for your Holiday Hangover, try listening to a couple of podcasts. Yes, you can put your feet up and close your eyes. One of my personal favorites is girl genius Leandra Medine from Man Repeller’s Oh Boy series. Great Funtent (fun content, that is, and no, I did not come up with that particular term, although I could see why you would think that, Ollie). In it, Jay Buim sits down with cool women for one-on-one conversations about their life and work. Inspirational material in a non-cheesy, non-corny way.
Finally, on my to read list for the coming weeks: The Young Bride, by Italian literary miracle Alessandro Baricco, A Spool of Blue Thread, by Anne Tyler and instant classic A History of Loneliness by John Boyde.
Also in the mix: a whole lot of eating, drinking and dancing to tacky Christmas music in our living room with a hyperactive three year old, thereby possibly traumatizing the almost-seven-month-old public for holiday seasons to come.
What are your plans for the holidays?
