Weekly Roundup

October 25, 2019

Madewell Cardigan I wit & whimsy

This week was a very busy one! It started out Upstate and is ending there, too! I’m heading up to The Catskills again this afternoon for my very first yoga retreat. I’m excited to be doing something new to me and to be escaping the city and – more importantly – my laptop for the weekend.

I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup & have a good weekend!

WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:

  • Spent Monday in The Catskills.
  • Caught up with my friend Hitha over lunch. If you’re not already subscribed to her #5SmartReads newsletter, I highly recommend it!
  • Got my annual physical. I keep a log on my phone of things to discuss with my doctor that are non-urgent and it always makes for a productive and informative conversation.
  • Tried out two restaurants I’d never been to: Augustine and Red Hook Tavern.

  1. With respect to CBD, and whether it’s “real” or a placebo, there is lots of cool work out there about the so-called “placebo-effect,” there was just an article in Gizmodo yesterday with lots of experts weighing in: https://gizmodo.com/why-do-placebos-work-1837983414. My take is, if it is safe, doesn’t have side effects, and isn’t crazy expensive, then who cares where the “effect” is coming from? My husband insists that if he chugs one of those vitamin C smoothies when he feels a cold coming on that it prevents the cold. Lots of studies have shown the link between vitamin C and cold prevention to be dubious at best, but if it makes him FEEL better, who cares?! I’ve tried CBD for sleep and have been very happy with it!
