Hi Friends. I thought this would be a great place to share some behind the scenes about Sweat Goddess, some personal insights and stories, and offer another way for you to get to know the person behind the brand! I thought I would start by sharing some of the things that are bringing me joy during this time of social distancing and what I like to call Care Cocooning (thank you Dr. Habib Sadeghi for the beautiful term!
First up I have always been a reader. I have to have a book I am reading at all times. It's something that helps me unwind at the end of each day and helps put me to sleep. I am currently reading Braiding Sweetgrass, which can be described as graceful prose of indigenous wisdom, scientific knowledge and the teachings of plants. A beautiful and relevant read encouraging the reader to consider the ways that our lives and language weave through the natural world.
A big thank you to my sister-in-law Jess and her twin Ky of Zura Health, and my sisters from another mister, for encouraging me to read this. I have just begun but so far it's a beautiful read. I also have been reading a lot of books from Reese Witherspoon's book club, and those have been great! What books are you all reading right now? I am always looking for my next good read. Comment below to leave me some suggestions. LOVE YOU ALL!
Thanks for sharing your reads and passion for books, please share some of the routines and fun things you’ve come up with to protect, educate, entertain, and feed your family.
