What I’m Into: April 2024

I’m taking a big exhale right now.

I wrapped up a busy (and stressful) few months and have a few days before another busy month, so I’m trying to enjoy taking it easy and not feeling the need to be so productive. With this brief moment to reflect and think about what’s to come, I wanted to share some of my latest obsessions. I hope you enjoy them too!

Spring Cleaning & Decluttering

I know I just said I’m trying to enjoy taking it easy, but the urge to declutter and do a deep clean is beginning. Maybe it’s the slow down of work and a few personal things that’s letting me turn my attention to my environment. I’ll be honest, as much as I want to dive into some home projects, I don’t have a free weekend for another month or so. But in the meantime, I’ll try to keep the inspiration alive with some of my favorite decluttering and cleaning resources.

Keep in mind that spring cleaning doesn’t just have to be actual stuff– mental stuff matters too. I listened to a great episode of The Mindset Mentor today focused on transforming your mind AND your space:

I recommend giving it a listen or watch!

Finding a Horror Movie Watchlist

Do you like scary movies? I do!

I just finished reading Nightmare Fuel: The Science of Horror Films by Nina Nesseth (my review is coming soon). If you’re a fan of horror movies, it’s worth a read! She dives into what goes into a horror movie in terms of jump scares, music, gore, and more. Did you know you’re actually making a scene scarier by closing your eyes?

I’ll be honest and say I’m still not really sure why I enjoy scary movies so much, but this book did make me want to find a list of the best horror movies and get to work. With Halloween only 6 months away, it’s not too early to get started, right?!

Incorporating More Variety into my Meals

I’ve been watching the 2024 Food Revolution Summit Docuseries, which has been super inspirational in terms of trying to eat healthier and more plant-based. I know I’m guilty of eating the same handful of meals and I’m missing out on a lot of variety when it comes to fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, grains, and more. Watching this eight-part series has definitely made me pause and look at what I’m eating.

I know after the series wraps up, I’ll be reading up on many of the speakers and checking out their books. I’m excited to shake things up! Brenda Davis’ Plant-Powered Protein is high on my list to start reading.
