A few months back, things in our lives were looking pretty bleak. And while life isn’t returning to normal just yet, optimism is in the air. 

Still, if you need help crossing the finish line — staying hopeful — or are simply craving some inspiration right now, here are some things that are keeping us feeling good. 

Ready, set, get inspired! 

  1. All dogs give us those warm-and-fuzzy feelings, but little Pearl (who is blind and deaf) is next-level inspiring.  

Check out her heartwarming story! 

  1. A true story about a boy saving his village from famine by building a wind turbine? Get ready to feel the uplift. 

Watch this feel-good tale on Netflix.  

  1. Couldn’t we all use a little wisdom from a former monk — especially if it involves finding your purpose and overcoming negativity? This book has inspiration written all over it. (Pun intended!)

Read this for all the inspirational vibes.

  1. This podcast, which we’re partial to, 😉 will help you get inspired, feel fulfilled and create more ease and joy in your every day … so pretty much everything you need in your life right now.

Listen here on how you can go for your goals, even when you fear failure. 

  1. If you have a little extra time these days, why not take a class on how to break the habit of self-doubt and build real confidence? 

Sign up here to start changing your life.

Whether you’re over the moon in love with life, or you’re feeling a little blue — we hope all of the above will uplift, inspire and help you to feel good. 

Remember, when you smile, the world smiles back. 🙂

Happy Friday!

XO,
Emily and the Savvy Team

 

Savvy Tip

We’re all carrying around more stress these days — in fact, eight out of 10 adults say the pandemic is a significant source of stress in their lives, while one in five adults say their mental health is worse now than it was at this time last year, one national survey found.

Because the threat of constant stress is so real, it’s important to have a few anxiety-busting tools in your toolkit. One of our favorite ways to find a little serenity? Knitting. Research even shows knitting can boost feelings of calm and happiness — and quiet ruminating thoughts. 

Not sure how to get started? We’re big fans of Annie’s Hook and Needle Kit Club, which sends you the yarn and patterns you need to make something new each month. You’ll learn new skills, keep your mood chill, and have something fun to show for it!
