#FreshFriday // September 2
Ok, guys. Let us take a moment to say a sweet bye bye to Summer '16. It's been a pretty good one for us here at cloverPR and we're getting all emotional... But, the sadness can only last so long because after all it is a Friday, and it is a long weekend! #FreshFriday Kill 'Em With Kindness (The Chalkboard)
Not exactly sure what this quote means? Let us help. The powers of self-love, generosity and kindness are often taken for granted, but it's amazing how powerful these actions can turn out to be. Forget supplements and smoothies, compassion is the real deal and can help you heal from the inside out. Click the link above to read about this cancer patient's road to recovery ft. compassion.
Alicia Keys Is The Future (NY Mag)
The MTV Video Music Awards were last week, and by true fashion we saw some great outfits and interesting speeches (we're looking at you, Kanye), but the most memorable was Alicia Keys and her message. The singer has recently detailed her decision to go bare-faced (a.k.a no makeup) as an attempt not to cover up anymore. Alicia says, "not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth, nothing." This trend has inspired news anchors to remove their makeup this morning too. #GoodTrend, we love you, Alicia!
Ekk! This Thing We Do Everyday Could Be As Bad For Us As Smoking (The Chalkboard)
How many of you are sitting down while reading this post? New studies have shown that sitting for prolonged periods of time can lead to long-term health issues like diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. In our millennial day and age, it's tough - between work, driving, and uhh Netflix, we seem to always be sitting down. While the standing revolution may not happen overnight, let us look at some solutions to reduce the risk. P.s this woman doing yoga on an airplane in an economy class seat may not be one of them (but we admire the yogi spirit).
Have a great weekend and celebrate it like it's your birthday, and even if it isn't, this #BirthdayCake milkshake should be consumed (it's healthy, we promise!)
