WHAT IS THE SANITY SNACK?

Your go-to source of bite-sized advice brought by self-help experts.

YOU LOST ME AT SELF-HELP…

Hold on…The whole concept of self-help makes us cringe too. But the self-help industry is much more than meets the eye. Sandwiched between trailblazers like Oprah or Tony Robinson and the mystical world of shamans and astrologists, there’s an entire ecosystem of experts.

We’re talking about therapists, scientists, business coaches, fitness trainers and more.

Their knowledge is pure gold.

But it’s often found at the bottom of some dusty website or in a poorly advertised book (“Find true love in 5 steps?”)

NOW I’M LISTENING

As someone who knows a thing or two about what makes a good story, I’m perfectly happy to dig through all this information and pack their advice into bite-sized content you can digest on your morning commute.

While a sanity snack can be inhaled in five minutes flat, it has enough staying power to get you through day or simply give you a nice jolt of mental energy.

And if you crave more? Go and check out our sources’ websites, books and podcasts. Follow them on social media.

NICEEE! AND YOU ARE?

Andy.

As a former journalist for Chicago Tribune’s Life and Style section, it was part of my job to interview these experts for simple and effective advice.

Check out my favorite stories.

I decided they deserve more than half a page once in a blue moon. So I built this platform.

Through a mix of genuine curiosity and well-crafted questions, I’ll get my guests to open up and share their best tips. There will be minimal editing. And zero self-help lingo → “shine your light,” “the universe listens” etc.

My experience ranges from writing health, fashion and consumer stories to editing a weekly series for Tribune’s Life & Style section.

Previously, I lived and worked as a social reporter in Romania, my home-country. My husband keeps the website running smoothly.

HOW CAN I HELP?

Our mission is to help people get a deeper understanding of themselves and the word around them. So we ask you to share the sanity snacks with loved ones. With the co-workers. With strangers on the train. With your barista. With everyone. 

Your words will impact someone’s life in ways you can’t imagine.
