Happiness Practice - February 9, 2018
[This is a post written to catch up blog posts with historical posts before I set up the blog! I'll also be adding tags so it's easier to find old subjects.]
Full disclosure: what's making me happy this week is nothing. It's been a long week, I'm inexplicably burnt out, and I've caught a cold which has sapped my energy and made me skip a couple of workouts, which always has a deleterious effect on my mood. "Happy" isn't how I've felt this week so much as "getting by". But we all have those days and weeks, and that's not the structure of these posts.
So, this week I finished the book 1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus. It was really good, really interesting, and has a lot of new information I'd never heard before, laid out thoughtfully and accessibly. If you're interested in history at all, I'd recommend it.
Also, this song by Glass Animals, which Spotify kept shoving in my face until I fell utterly in love with it and went through their entire discography.
