{This week: 52 key learnings, wellness trends, Hello Sunday Morning, and more.}

Hi all,

Here’s a list of 10 happy links that inspired me this week:

1. 52 key learnings in 52 weeks of 2016—Tré Wee’s thoughts on the process of reflection, recall, human memory, and his year-long learning experiment inspired me. I’m going to incorporate Wee’s tips into my journaling practice.

2. 11 Wellness Trends To Watch In 2017—it was intriguing to learn that minimalist fashion is on the rise (#2) and that the sobriety movement is growing (#3).

3. Hello Sunday Morning: Reflections on 12 months off alcohol—a powerful essay about sobriety and Australia’s drinking culture.

4. A Year of Slow Living Experiments—Cait’s new project is really cool!

5. The Vanilla Beanie—I’m overly excited about adding a second hat to my minimalist wardrobe.

6. Meal Prep Monday—a helpful and fun essay about meal planning. I'm excited to try some of Heather's tips and recipes.

7. How to Become a ‘Superager’—a fascinating piece on aging. The article reminded me that engaging in uncomfortable activities like—CrossFit and writing—is good for my brain.

8. Shifter Variance—I read Tina Gower’s new novel in two days! I love the characters and the story line.

9. Side Hustle School—Chris Guillebeau’s new daily podcast. The project is "for everyone who wants to create a new source of income without quitting their day job.”

10. A Simple Year 2017—The course is the brainchild of my friend Courtney Carver—founder of bemorewithless.com and Project 333—and I’m thrilled to be part of A Simple Year 2017. I hope you’ll join the class!

Thanks for reading! If you enjoy my weekly happy links roundup and want to support it, share this post with a friend.
