What I’m loving
Clue app: period and ovulation tracker
I deal with migraines and insomnia, among other things, that are all related to my hormones and where I am in my cycle. I also have polycystic ovary Syndrome, which makes everything even more messed up. While I have tried tracking it on paper many times, I was never able to track it successfully. Someone recommended Clue, an app that tracks period and ovulation, and I have been using it for about 6 months now. It is so helpful in tracking my period, as well as all my other random hormonal symptoms.
What I’m reading
‘Just Mercy’ by Bryan Stevenson
I typed and re-typed my thoughts on this book 3 times now and I just can’t seem to convey how profoundly “Just Mercy” impacted me. I truly feel like this should be required reading for everyone. It addresses too many issues that many people are not aware of in such an approachable way — race, poverty, our justice system, and more.
It was such a captivating book that I read it in 2 days, despite the heavier subject matter. I really can’t recommend it enough. It is a popular book right now, so definitely check your library for copies.
‘Reclaim Your Brain’ by Joseph A. Annibali MD
I absolutely loved “Reclaim Your brain” and found it so informative. I have been very intrigued by the concept of mindfulness, which is how I came across this book in the library. I think “Reclaim Your Brain” does a good job of giving practical advice you can put into practice right away.
‘Magic Hour’ by Kristin Hannah
I picked up “Magic Hour” at our library book sale knowing nothing about it other than the blurb on the back that made it seem interesting; I read it in one day. It was not my normal super, light, happy read, but it really sucked me in and I couldn’t put it down. The novel is about a child psychiatrist trying to help a young girl who doesn’t speak and appears to have lived alone in the woods.
