"I don’t really have a certain brand affinity, don’t really care. Whichever one smells good."
"Feeling a little hypocritical that I engage in XYZ activities that are not “good” for you, but am a huge proponent of switching to natural deodorant (Re: the aluminum argument). It seems that people REALLY care about what brand of deodorant they use or do not care at all."
"I am personally loyal to Degree Black & White, not because I think it’s better than other deodorants, I just like to stick to the same one and I switched to it to prevent pit stains (ruined one too many T-shirts). I’ve tried natural deodorants and I just couldn’t do it, too sweaty."
"I have no brand loyalty to deodorant—or body care products in general tbh. Whatever there’s a deal on at Walgreens. I’m not a fan of natural. Big fan of clear sprays though because I hate when it gets on my clothes."
"I try not to be too hard on myself for doing absolutely nothing. I’ve also been trying not to be on my phone as much during “down time”, opting to read, write or just go on a walk. Not going to lie, it’s difficult, but it’s important to disconnect, or at least put in an effort."
"Hobbies! I find that having hobbies (i.e. going to the gym) helps me a lot to relieve stress and have fun."
"I’m a bit of an introvert so it’s actually been crucial for me to go out and see friends IRL. I always feel a nice jolt of energy and feel happier afterwards, especially because the alternative is isolating myself at home and scrolling on my phone all day (inevitably damaging to my mental health)."
"With working from home, it’s been important for me to get out of the house during the week in ways that aren’t just grocery shopping/grabbing coffee/errands. Obviously I have the weekends to do things outside of work, but it feels like a real treat/reset to see a friend on a week day after work or something. With mental health maintenance, I remind myself to rest when I need to, but also push myself to not be lazy and hole up (especially in this gloomy winter)."
"I try to prioritize some time for myself where I’m not online or doing something that I truly enjoy. I’m online a lot in general, so taking some time to log-off and be away from the computer helps me maintain my mental sanity."
"That it’s addictive."
"Recently uninspired but tentatively optimistic about the future."
"It’s a double-edged sword; it’s entertaining and a fun creative outlet, but it's also addictive and (if unregulated) a risky echo-chamber. For example, a lot of my friends have been cutting their screen time or straying away from posting too much as a means to protect their mental health. On a positive note, I am glad outlets like social media can at least offer a platform for people to raise awareness on important issues, help people find a community, and spotlight small businesses and creators."
"Primarily, I think I’d go with traditional? There’s some modern art I love but sometimes it gets a little too abstract for me (a pile of sand against a corner, paper mache looking sculptures, strips of LED lights on the floor, etc.)"
"My art history/modern art knowledge is a bit scattered between the two—thanks to weird college requirements lol—but different aspects of both resonate."
"Both are great, although I’d probably lean more toward surreal modern artists like Frida Kahlo or Salvador Dali. Frankly, I’m not a big fan of abstract art; however, I do respect it. Also, I’m not sure people would consider the impressionist movement as part of early modern or late traditional art; however, I’ve noticed it’s had a bit of a resurgence these past few years."
"Yes! Reading is my go-to before bed activity to cut down on screen time, plus it’s just an enjoyable way to relax. I can go through slumps from time to time depending how busy I am, but I typically get through two books a month."
"Definitely. Agree with the above. I’m trying to cut down on screen time as well, so I read before bed. When it’s nice out, I’ll read outside as well."
"Same ^ I’d admit to being a bit of a picky reader so I like to have a few going at once, depending what I’m feeling."
"Yes, though I admit, I need to read more."
