WHAT IS THE SANITY SNACK?
Your go-to source of bite-sized advice brought to you 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 many are not interested in acing the marketing game, which means you’re less likely to see their names popping up in your social media feeds.
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 your 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?
As a former journalist for Chicago Tribune’s Life&Style section, it was part of my job to interview these experts for simple and effective advice.
That’s when I realized 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 called Social Graces.
Previously, I lived and worked as a social reporter in Romania, my home-country.
Lily is an ambitious 20-year-old who edits Sanity Snack stories and manages the site’s media marketing. And she pulls these jobs off while studying creative writing and business at the University of Iowa.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Our mission is to help people get a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. We ask you to share the sanity snacks with loved ones. With coworkers. With strangers on the train. With your barista. With everyone.
Your words will impact someone’s life in ways you can’t imagine.
