This Holiday Season, Make Space For Solitude

Tarot contributor Jessica explains why the holiday season is the perfect time to go deep - even to the places that you fear the most.

If your life is anything like mine, Halloween kicks off a couple of months of festive decorating and nonstop socializing. It makes sense that we want to gather with friends and family to beat back the long, cold nights with hot toddies and tinsel, but I'd like to encourage you to carve out some time and space for quiet solitude. Since I’m a bit of an introvert, this is just a necessary part of self-care for me.

There’s more to my suggestion than that, though. Winter is the perfect time to cultivate—or rekindle, or rehabilitate—a relationship with darkness and silence. 

Let The High Priestess be your guide. The third card in the Major Arcana, The High Priestess is unafraid to travel wherever her search for knowledge takes her. She trusts her own inner wisdom, and it’s through knowing herself that she gets to know the universe. 


The Work At Home Mom Gift Guide (AnyMom-Approved)

Hi all, RG Editorial Director Olivia here! I've been running my own business from my kitchen table for the better part of a decade now, so I've grown quite accustomed to the work-from-home lifestyle. I love working from home, but often find myself wearing the same black leggings and Old Navy sweatshirts day in and out, so I've rounded up some of my personal fave work at home outfits, plus a few accessories that make working from the kitchen table a little more...elevated? Sure.

Little caveat: These products also make great gifts for any mom in your life - because for real, is there anything better than rocking some cute slug-life clothing to school pick up? There is not. (Jordan can attest to this.)


The Ultimate CBD Gift Guide

CBD: That thing that everyone kiiiiinda thought was a mild form of pot for awhile, and now has become a wellness staple even your grandmother can get on board with.

A quick primer: CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants and distinct from THC (which is what creates the psychoactive effect). Cannabinoids work with a series of receptors in your body that perform jobs like regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule, and so on. Unlike THC, CBD won't get you "high" in the sense of being intoxicated - but countless studies have shown that it promotes a sense of peace and well-being akin to what you experience when, say, you're singing along to your favorite song on the radio.

A natural high. Doesn't that sound lovely?
