Happy Labor Day! I had this idea about posting helpful, fun, uplifting and entertaining things on Mondays and calling it Mental Health Monday. Since today is a Monday and also a holiday it seemed like a good time to test it out (read: I didn’t have to work this Monday and thus it isn’t really like a Monday for me).

Why trust is worth it– and how can you grow it?  Cirque du Soleil style. I love, love, love  this.

If you are in a shell– shyness

Alchemy baths-Mystic Medusa has this suggestion until the eclipse in early October. I’ve tried it a few times with rosebuds and dried citrus peel and have to say the improvement in sleep is worth the extra bathtub cleaning.

For those of us who can use the occasional assistance when it comes to deciding here are some techniques for simplified decision making.

AND

Mark Manson’s advice on dating. Fuck Yes or No.  I think his theory could be taken outside the dating arena.

Oh and I nearly forgot…

Exercise!  If this is a dirty word in your vocabulary find a movement you enjoy and do it until you sweat glisten.  Check out John Ratey’s book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.

Over the course of the weekend I stumbled on some fun stuff.

Went out on one of my usual walks through a cemetery an saw some deer going for a walk, first a group of three and then a solo deer munching flowers off of someone’s tombstone.  Decided to check into the potential significance of my deer sighting.

This video showed up twice in my internet wanderings. Hadn’t planned to watch the entire thing but it got started and I couldn’t turn it off. It is a short documentary (45 minutes) on the process of getting into Cirque du Soleil. Yes, it’s as difficult as you might imagine.
