How to have the best weekend, this weekend.
Remember how we've always been told that if you change your mind, you change the world - or at least the way you experience it? Let's take a moment to experience that. The presumption is, if you thought the world was a hostile, ugly place filled with awful things, that is what you'd see.
Our minds would naturally seek out confirmation for its preconceived ideas (e.g., if you're intent on buying a red car, as you go about your day, you'll see lots of red cars).
If, however you were able to sincerely change your mind and see that all God created was a perfect universe with the most beautiful creatures, and landscapes, then that is the soul-shaking reality you'd be greeted with each and every moment of each and every day.
In other words, it is entirely our choice as to what kind of world we live in, or what kind of weekend we get to have this weekend. With a simple decision, we can suffer in the darkness or play in the light. We can be angry, frightened, or loving, joyous and free. I know...

An astronaut workout
They say you learn something new every day, and if you are anything like us, you should've learnt by now that working out while you're staying in might not be at the top of your to-do list, neither does walking from your bed to the couch count as an exercising routine.
For some inspiration, we can all turn to the masters of isolation: astronauts. Being trapped up in space comes with all sorts of challenges, but they still manage to get a great cardiovascular workout thanks to custom built exercise equipment, as seen in this video by Jessica Meir, a NASA Astronaut.
