Just put your paws up

Not so happy news
The Supreme Court just ruled that it’s now legal for employers to make workers sign away their right to file class-action lawsuits against them and instead take their troubles to a private court system that favors the corporations. Put simply, #metoo just got massacred.

Moon Wisdom
The full moon in Sagittarius tonight supports any desires related to good luck, growth, ambition, public perception, protection, strength, sexuality, confidence, fame, generosity and communication. What are you ready to experience more of? How can you show more of your authentic self, desires and talents to others? Now is the time to express your very authentic, very true nature. Take a moment and reflect on what you’ve learned since the last full moon, 28 days ago, or over the past six months. You are growing at a rapid pace. Know that you do not need permission from others to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. Give yourself permission to say YES to your desires.

On that note
According to manifestation advisor Lacy Phillips, the most common traits “lucky” people share are that they’re incredibly vulnerable, honest and confident about their self-worth.

To start getting what you want, take inventory about what you were raised to believe and then let it go. Get real about what you want, and start chipping away at anything that’s limiting you from that (you know what we’re talking about: bad friends, boring jobs…). No people-pleasing allowed.

Know your worth. Don’t settle. Be magnetic.

Don’t let a Monday ruin your Sunday.
Post-drinking depression is a thing, and if emotions like anxiety, shame, guilt or embarrassment feel all too familiar, you’re not alone. The cure: Mindfulness. That killer migraine is your body’s way of telling you it wants to rest. Close your eyes and imagine your happy place while taking slow, deep breaths. Use the mantra “I am safe” while letting go of any uncomfortable emotions with each exhale. Drink water. You’re going to be just fine.

Are you tired?
It could be your nighttime routine. Reading is a soothing way to relax and unwind before bed, butreading from an iPad can actually hurt your sleep quality. Spending too much time in front of a screen can push back bedtime, suppress melatonin levels and cut down on all those sweet dreams. Next time you decide to pick up a book before bed, go old school with a real one!

Baby, I was born this way
As the battle for equality rages on within the LGBT community, a group of researchers studied the brain activity of transgender adolescents. The results? Their brain activity most closely resembles the gender they identify with, not the gender they were biologically born into. Nurture, meet nature. 

Life is plastic, it’s [not] fantastic
Plastic pollution is one of the biggest problems today, and the Zero-Waste movement is picking up steam. Make the switch to reusable produce bags, try out a bamboo biodegradable toothbrush andsay no to single-use straws.

Z Challenge: Try going zero-waste for a full week, and let us know how it goes!
