Sanity Snacks Weekly Roundup

By Lily Friedman


With only a month left of summer, it’s the perfect time for making healthy changes in your life so you can start the fall off on a high. Scouring the internet each week as social media marketer here at The Sanity Snack, I’m on a mission to deliver some of the best wellness and self-improvement advice on the web for our followers.

This week, I came across some ‘sanity tidbits’ that will prepare you to face your challenges head on, explore your human potential, become inspired to make positive changes and maybe even pick up a quirky new hobby like whittling while you’re at it.

Without further ado, here are three Sanity Snacks worth checking out:

Enhance Your Life with Hobbies- even if you are on a tight budget

Don’t knock it til’ you try it. To embrace a new hobby, you don’t have to be creative or an expert on the topic, perhaps all you need is a desire for change mixed with a little ambition and curiosity.

I didn’t think I would enjoy daily journaling, but once I tried it I saw how many healthy habits it developed. Journaling allows me to transfer my ideas and anxieties from head to paper, alleviating daily stress, creating focus, and giving me concrete thoughts to reflect upon.

More importantly, new hobbies can lead to external and internal discoveries, guiding you towards outlets for passions and talents you might not even know you had. After reading this list of 50 inspiring and exciting low-cost hobbies, I challenge you pick up a knitting needle or bust out that dusty cook book and further explore your interests.

Reinventing Yourself at Any Age

“Don’t be average. Don’t shoot for average,” said modern day renaissance man, Rushion McDonald, as he sets the tone for a sit-down interview with Tom Bilyeu from Impact Theory.

From working for IBM to becoming named one of the best comedians in America, McDonald’s motivational explorations of the self don’t stop there. Known for building the Steve Harvey empire, writing numerous books and creating a marketing agency for celebrities.

In this interview McDonald shares stories and advice on reinventing yourself through overcoming obstacles. The discussions range from the importance of planning and the process of self-reinvention to the impact that location can have on your success.

By the end of this interview you’ll be living a limitless life too.
