Tackling Zoom Anxiety - Public Speaking in a Virtual Environment
Public speaking has always terrified me. My heart feels like it's going to explode out of my chest, my hands get all shaky and often, I devolve into a bout of rambling that I'm sure throws my intelligence level into question.

I Replaced my Traditional Cleaning Products with Eco-Friendly Products for One Week, and Here's What Happened
I’ve always loved the way my home smells and feels after a good deep-cleaning. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as walking completely barefoot on squeaky-clean floors, pulling on a pair of ultra-soft sweatpants from the clean laundry, and having no dirty dishes in the sink.

Keeping a Plant Alive
Some people are born with the gift of having a green thumb. Meaning, gardening and horticultural activities come easy for them. I imagine this to be about as true as naturally talented sports players or artists. Not that you can't have a natural knack for something, it's just that everything we do requires repetition to reaching perfection. My mother used to tell me "practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect." If you want to get truly good at something and master your skill you have to put in the time, effort and energy to become better.
