Way less TV and way more reading. And that’s a good thing, for me anyway. Keeping my mind in an active state vs. a dull state is better for my mental health! How about you… reading or TV? What keeps you mentally sharp?
BTW, the most clicked link in the last 5 Things was for Amazon’s World Book Day. While the free books are no longer free, you can still learn about and buy the books recommended, written by authors around the world.
Now, here are the 5 Things to read or use for your personal and professional development:
1. Let’s start with beautiful photographs! This place is now on my “must-experience” list when travel is allowed again. The Most Beautiful Flower Garden In The World Has No Visitors For The First Time In 71 Years And I Got To Capture It (31 Pics)
2. If you’re wondering who could use your help with donations or virtual volunteering: Here’s How You Can Change Lives in the Pandemic
3. Are you prone to “optimism bias?” Why we find it difficult to recognise a crisis.
4. This is worth paying $1.50 for (support the person who created it!) so you can print it out and use it daily… Isolation Mental Health Wellbeing Daily To-Do List Worksheet.
5. Ann Handley, the author of Everybody Writes, offered a free webinar about her approach to writing. It was brilliant. From her presentation style to her enthusiasm and use of the children’s book, Charlotte’s Web to teach her points, I was hooked every minute. You can watch the replay at Marketing Profs, though you must sign up for a free membership to do so. It’s worth it.
