January Link Love
My first link love post of 2018 – yay! Did you make New Year’s resolutions? Usually we do, but this year we didn’t. Oh well, usually I’m also sharing these links on the second Friday of the month in a Friday Link Love, but I was busy hosting a birthday party for a teenager yesterday. That’s why you get my January Link Love on this sunny and lazy Saturday. Maybe it’s going to be a year of flexibility and change?!
My friend sent me this podcast about How to make hard choices. I found it very interesting and revealing. The only problem is that when it comes to the important decision that I want to make, I can’t only think about myself and my values.
I recently started listening to the German podcast “Das Thema” of the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”. I can highly recommend it.
This German article “Wir brauchen strengere Handy-Regeln” (We need stricter smart phone rules”) contains two simple rules how to limit your own phone time and how to be a better role model for your children.
These phrases can give parents an indication of whether their child is suffering from anxiety.
My friend and I were talking about what books could teach our 10-year old girls the love of reading and she told me about the classic “The wrinkle in time”. My 14-year old actually read it in two days. It was just made into a movie and Oprah Winfrey feels like they made the new ‘Wizard of Oz’ for another generation.
Holly Butcher gave the world some great advice before she passed away. And her letter is once more a reminder to live in the moment and to cherish what you have. And to eat the cake. RIP Holly.
Sara Zaske wrote a book. I mentioned her and her article “How To Parent Like a German” many times and I’m really looking forward to read her book “Achtung Baby. An American Mom on the German Art of Raising Self-Reliant Children”.
Funnily, the article “Letting kids light matches and 9 other seemingly scary things that German parents do” in the Chicago Tribune was written by my namesake Nara Schoenberg. I bet here name is actually Schönberg, too, but as we all know Americans don’t do the Umlaut 😉
You can also watch Ruth Changs Ted Talk about hard choices here:
If you need a morning yoga routine, try this 15-minute flow session from Ekhart Yoga. It’s short and good.
And here’s the trailer The wrinkle in time:
I’m looking forward to share more articles, videos, books, podcasts and other fun stuff with you this year. If you’ve read an interesting article or have a great book recommendation, please leave a comment and share some of the love. Danke!
Have a great rest of the (long) weekend!
