Just the Best: On the Benefits of Music, the Dangers of Screen Time, the Myth of Work-Life Balance & More

Just the Best: On the Benefits of Music, the Dangers of Screen Time, the Myth of Work-Life Balance & More. My favorite articles from around the web to help you shine.

Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity of spending 6 days with a sweet group of Brazilians. I don’t want to stereotype Brazilians, but I can say with certainty these particular people were joyful, relaxed, grateful, friendly, and vivacious.

I found it so good to get out of my own skin, my own limited vision of the world, and step into another. The way we see the world isn’t necessarily the way the world is, right? But it’s so easy to forget that and be imprisoned by our routine and limited perception.

Try immersing yourself in another culture for a time if you want to shake up stale perspectives that might be holding you back.

Here are my favorite articles from around the web, just the best ones, that offer practical or profound wisdom to inspire you to shine.  Enjoy!

I’m playing around with the look of the images on my blog so they work well on Pinterest. [Click the link to follow my boards.] You’ll probably see various incarnations over the coming weeks.  Thanks for your understanding, patience, and support.  And if you have any feedback, let me know!

Which links from the above list spoke to you?  I would love to hear.

Thank you for being here.  If you enjoyed this article, please share it with others, every share makes a big difference.  Thank you!  May you be well, happy, and safe – always. With love, Sandra

My Morning Routine: How I Start Each Day with Ease


  1. Hi Sandra,
    What a wonderful collection of articles you have here. I’ll definitely dig in.
    And I’m so trying pinterest too…but I’m using the same square ones. Your experiment there might teach me a thing or two 😉
    Lots of love,

  2. A lovely round-up, as always Sandra. I found the four burners article particularly pertinent right now, and thought-provoking. Although… it’s a tough one to really take on board. Wishing you a wonderful week x

    • Thanks, Ellen. Yes, I found the 4 Burners theory very interesting as well. I think it provides some relief from the idea that we can do it all, and that is beneficial in itself. But of course, there’s still the temptation to try to do it all. 🙂

  3. Sandra,

    Thank you so much for including my post on the brain benefits of music. I always look forward to and find a wealth of useful information in your “round-up” posts. (Even if I’m not included!) 🙂

    • You’re welcome, Debbie. I was so blown away by the positive impact of music on the brain detailed in your article. I personally don’t like music, but all this goodness made me think I should give it a try!

  4. I love your roundup posts Sandra. Always some great reads. Now it’s all about managing my time well enough to do some more reading! 🙂

  5. Hi Sandra,

    Great list of articles here, so I will definitely check them out. It is wonderful to immerse yourself in another culture. It gets us out of our comfort zone and helps us expand. Thanks you!

  6. I can’t wait to look into all these links! Rabbit Proof Fence is excellent – I saw that years ago and loved it!
