April Letter


Dear Friends,


I'm writing this blog post from Utah, after spending the last week in Idaho. The seasons are changing, and the snow is melting. Since the calendar turned to April, all I can think is that it's almost Earth Day. I'm so excited to share the new GIVE website with you, and Earth Day is the perfect time to do it. Here are some things I've been enjoying and some things I'm looking forward to this month.

I've been starting the day with a "thank you" meditation lately.

I'm always doing different meditations, but I've been enjoying this one a lot.



I've been enjoying getting back out into nature and recently discovered snowshoeing. The other fitness trend I keep hearing about is plogging (jogging while picking up plastic). It might be my April workout.



Earthday.org has some of the best toolkits on how to take action and "restore our earth." They also created a map to find Earth Day Activities, which is linked to the photo.



I'm excited to read Adam Grant's new book, Think Again. The book examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people's minds, which can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life.



In honor of Earth Day, I'm reminding everyone of this great free tool, Fossil Free Funds, where you can see if you are invested in companies contributing to climate change through fossil fuel emissions.



When I have some down time, I wil be trying one of the sessions with Homemade. Homemade offers a series of online cooking classes taught by world-class chefs envisioning for people to come together from their homes, around a shared love of food and desire to learn a new skill. Proceeds support UNICEF’s coronavirus appeal.



I'm excited to try Calm Strips, which are textured sensory adhesives that help with anxiety and fidgeting. Many of their styles give back to different causes too.


Let us know what you are reading and enjoying in the comment's below.


Happy Earth Month!


Rebecca
