welcome back.

I’ve done a Monthly Meanderings for a real long time. It’s a way for me to be your internet tour guide show you all the things I’ve read / heard / watched recently. Until next time keep in touch on Facebook & Instagram or maybe explore the archive of my podcast or read my book.

 

 

 

// to read

-I always ask people about their morning routines because I think it’s nosey, fascinating, and inspiring. This website takes that question to the next level. I could get lost on here forever.

-I’ve probably shared this before but I don’t care, love this. 

-This study was impactful for me healing my eating disorder. It’s crazy the stuff we do to our bodies under the veil of dieting that is worse/ more restrictive than what the men in this medical study had to do. Past podcast guest Kelsey does such a great job summarizing the findings of the study which perhaps the most important study on the mental, physical, and social effects of food restriction.

-Another really important article where past podcast Guest Kelsey Miller interviews fellow past guest on my podcast Melissa A. Fabello. They talk about thin privilege and it is a must read.

-I really love that Elle Fanning likes REALgirl Empowerment Programs as much as I do. 

-How awkward are you? this quiz will tell you…

Bodies are not resumes. 

-For local people how cool is this Flower Week my friend Lisa is doing, let’s all go.

-Totally into this trend. I want to host these here. Will you come?

-One of my favorite people and thrilled to say soon-to-be podcast guest (it’s already recorded just waiting to release what I have already recorded in order), Josh Radnor now has a stellar newsletter which he’s calling his ‘Museletter’ and whenever it pops into my inbox (monthlish) it’s a good day. Get on it here. 

to listen //

-I was on Shawn and Jade’s podcast The Model Health Show last week, listen here. 

-I was also on my friend Meg’s show The Nourished Podcast, listen to that one here.

-My episode of the Wilder Podcast… for sure one of the best conversations I’ve had in a while. so fun.

-This wasn’t me on this episode but I especially loved the most recent episode of Jess Murnane’s One Part Podcast this week.

-Especially loved this week’s episode of Alexi’s podcast with Aya Cash too.

-My favorite human Tavi was on Anna Faris’s podcast this week.  aka highlight of my week.

-Are you listening to Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast? Just making sure because it’s amazing and you should be.

-This week actor and director John Krasinski was on Fresh Air and it was one of my other favorite things I listened to this week. He seems like such a smart, humble, kind man. I look forward to seeing his new movie he was promoting too, looks fantastic.

-Not a podcast…the three seconds of my day where I’m not listening or recording podcasts I’m listening to music. Here’s the fall playlist I’m starting, not sure how great it is today but it will evolve if you want to follow.

// to watch

-I’m loving this series on British Vogue by Camille Rowe about wellness and health so much.

-My Columbus vlog if you haven’t already seen it. & Traverse City too.

-Okay wow I so love Laura Miller and her new series, ‘Talking in Circles’ is the coolest thing I’ve seen on the internet in …maybe ever.

-Sharing this funny video because I loved this movie and because if you watch until the end you’ll see the other reason…

-Writing a song in 20 minutes can be done.

-Did you love Curious George as much as I did as a kid? Of course you did. Support this cool doc about the creation of it.

-Three movies I loved and highly recommend this summer: Captain Fantastic, Tallulah, and Don’t Think Twice (Tallulah is streaming on Netflix, the other two are in theaters now)
