These strange times have effectively forced people to slow down. Working from home, homeschooling the kiddos, and having to social distance will do that. A positive side effect has been the self-discovery, or self-reflection that has gripped so many. It can sometimes go unnoticed, but we're willing to bet that you have had a moment or two of discovery and even reflection.
It's these internal observations that drove the theme for this week's "distraction". We'll start with music since music can be really thought-provoking, and Janelle Monáe is all about lyrical themes that will have you thinking as you sing and hum along. The Hidden Figuresactress pulled a synth-pop influence from Prince for her latest album, Dirty Computer.
Every good reset could be accompanied with a cleanse. We're not about to go down that road just yet, so a quick and easy Kombucha Cocktail will suffice.
We are getting close to serenity, but having a visual sometimes helps reach the mental goal. Look no further than Jai Vasicek and his use of color and composition that really captures feminine beauty and invokes the goddess within.
Enjoy your Labor Day weekend and stay safe! XOXO
