Happy Friday Everyone! I don’t have a list of specific items this week. However, I wanted to share a few of my favorite articles and posts of the week.
Adult Coloring Books
Coloring is one of several items I suggest to clients who are struggling with anxiety. I was extremely excited to see this NBC news segment on the stress release that is found in coloring. In fact, coloring books for adults are quickly selling out and some can be found on Amazon’s Top Seller list. You can find sample mandalas to download here. If you haven’t sat down to color lately, I encourage you to try it again.
The Price of Nice Nails
This article from the New York Times investigating the New York City nail salon industry will make you think and possibly reconsider where you have your nails done. Sadly, it was found that many workers do not receive wages, tips are often withheld and often must pay to work in salons. Although I believe this doesn’t happen everywhere, I feel we all must be responsible in where and how we spend our money. I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful friend who is a small business owner. I know the care she puts into her work and that she receives the money I pay her.
