I’v read this article before, but heard it again on This American Life podcast this month, really interesting to hear how one person’s coping mechanism for thier mental health issues has triggered a major hipster trend!
A really powerful piece about how Susannah Conway has learnt to live in her body
New podcast from Gretchen Rubin. I like this, it is only 20 minutes long, quite light and it focuses on her work on happiness and habits
The Miniaturist, Jesse Barton – really intriguing and it kept me going throughout a quite thick novel. I was disappointed when it ended and I look forward to more of her work
Elizabeth is missing, Emma Healey – thought provoking book about dementia and managed to be moving without being overly sentimental. Again, looking forward to reading more, especially as this is debut novel
Lady Gaga, The Fame Monster -I decided a lot of my music was depressing and wanted some pure pop and I sure got it here

So – do you have any other suggestions for me?
