MAKING YOUR HOME “WORK” DURING CHALLENGING TIMES

2020-11-01T09:24:08-05:00

Photo by Alizee Baudez on Unsplash By Tiffany Edison Have you ever sat down and made a list of the things that you’re truly grateful for? It can be a highly rewarding experience, and one that brings about a much-needed dose of self-awareness, especially in challenging times. I find it unfortunate that Thanksgiving seems to be the main event for this, when in fact practicing gratitude on a daily basis is beneficial to both our hearts and minds. Over the years, nothing seems to bring me more pleasure than hearing my design clients express how grateful they are for our shared [...]

GLANCING BACK AT LIFE

2020-11-01T09:24:15-05:00

Photo by Jessica Ruscello on Unsplash By Marilyn Pellini My life from the very beginning has made me so very grateful. I was lucky enough to be born into a fine family and raised with morals and values by hard-working parents with a strong faith. They made me into who and what I am today. My folks were the children of immigrants, and were raised to receive and value an education. My father was a pharmacist; Dad’s brothers were a doctor, pharmacist, and artist, and his one and only sister went to business school and became a secretary. Growing up, we lived [...]

THE MOCKTAIL REVOLUTION

2020-11-01T09:24:21-05:00

Photo by Drew Farwell on Unsplash By Liz Crowe Welcome to November! I’ve had a bit of an epiphany of late, with regard to our monthly chats here in Brick Mag. It occurs to me that I’m being a touch exclusionary. I mean, not all of you drink alcohol, I assume. And here I am prattling away as if we all enjoy the same level of tolerance—mine being one that I’m simultaneously proud of and embarrassed about. Given the events of the past nine months, it wouldn’t surprise me if some of you former semi- or complete teetotalers changed your ways.* [...]

PLUCKING CHICKENS

2020-11-01T09:24:27-05:00

I used to have a bank account with money in it, and now I see it’s like a leaky bucket with money dripping out the bottom, one automatic payment at a time. Remember when you had to lay down some paper to buy something? You had to pull out some cash or write a check — back in the day, when checks were a thing. Back when we paid our bills by writing words on paper and [...]

CAN A LITTLE THC HELP ME?

2020-11-01T09:24:34-05:00

Photo by Kimzey Nanney on Unsplash By Lisa Profera MD Can a small dose of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) help you? The short answer is yes. The days of THC being vilified as a drug of abuse or a gateway drug are mostly behind us. As you know, THC is the chemical in marijuana that is responsible for the feeling of being “high.” The recreational market is flooded with cannabis strains that have potent amounts of THC for people who desire its psychoactive effect. However, there’s now a trend on the medical side of the cannabis industry toward micro-dosing THC. A little THC [...]

WHEN GRATITUDE FEELS SYRUPY

2020-11-01T09:24:40-05:00

Photo on Unsplash By Morella Devost Dear gratitude-challenged reader,   This is for those of you who find the idea of a gratitude practice somewhat syrupy.    I too have been gratitude-challenged. For years, reading the self-help advice from teachers and coaches alike telling me to “practice gratitude” or “just find one thing to be grateful for” made me feel totally inadequate. I understood that I was supposed to feel grateful, but in reality, that always felt so foreign. I’d ultimately feel a little resentful of the rosy advice and envious of the people for whom it seemed so easy.   [...]
