“With ‘yes, thank you’, I saw the potential to get more out of one flower than an entire botanical garden. It’s about a feeling, not a fact. Don’t consume the flower. Be consumed.” ― Pete Holmes, “Comedy Sex God”

How We’re Hydrating Our Skin

Drunk Elephant Polypeptide Moisturizer

Ah sweet, sweet summertime. The time when it becomes “socially acceptable” to ditch the makeup at the office (blek!). Say hello to dewy skin ladies AND gents. Drunk Elephant has a protein moisturizer that we just can’t get enough of. If it’s your birthday month and you’re a Sephora Insider (it’s free to sign up), it’ll be in your birthday gift package, complete with a Drunk Elephant jelly cleanser.

Why do we love it? It hydrates. It tightens. It brightens. Is there anything this moisturizer can’t do? Maybe finish your presentation for you – she’s not great at that. But you’ll look good doing it yourself because you’re a boss. More importantly, Drunk Elephant is cruelty-free and a supporter of the International Elephant Foundation. REPRESENT.

How We’re Treating Ourselves

Spa Day

Workwell contributor Alyssa spent the morning at the spa in the heart of Manhattan – for less than $70. That’s less than a night out with double the rewards and zero ounces of regret. If you’ve had a stressful week at the office, look into a 3-4 hour mini spa package. No need to go nuts on spending hundreds of dollars. A few hours of quiet relaxation is the perfect way to begin your morning – or end your day, especially if you’re like us and have found a 24-hour spa.

What We’re Listening To

You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes

This podcast is pretty long. It’s a solid hour and 51 minutes. But what we listened to (what may or may not have changed our outlook on life) starts at 6:55 and ends at the 20 minute mark. Pete Holmes reads an excerpt from his book “Comedy, Sex, God”. The chapter is entitled: Yes, Thank You. It’s a chapter on meditation in every day life and just so happens to be one of the most relatable bits on the subject that we’ve heard in awhile. If you’re not a religious person, you can skip over those parts and take the subject matter for what it is. It’s not about that. It’s about saying yes and thank you to all the little things in your day to day life, being present, and being open. Because isn’t that the whole point? And trust us, being present makes all the difference in being a good worker and a great worker.
