Whether I want a breath of fresh air or to rest my sore ears, I end up holding the sweat-soaked mask in my hand, letting it dangle, or—more often—throwing it nearby or into my bag, undoubtedly contaminating everything. For a while, I secured the mask around my head with a string, but constantly retying and transferring it between masks was a hassle, and ultimately I wound up not wearing my masks as much as I knew I should. This game-changing invention looks like a necklace and functions like an eyeglass chain (and as a bonus, most of them actually do convert into necklaces and eyewear chains). There’s a range of available options, from sleek metal and fun, beaded chains to washable fabric lanyards.
Way back in April, Parton donated $1 million to Vanderbilt University's COVID-19 research efforts, That donation helped fund Vanderbilt's work on Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine, which just revealed promising interim results this week. The Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund is even listed as a supporter of the research (alongside the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) in a preliminary report on the vaccine published in the New England Journal of Medicine. and we can thank the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund for helping us get one step closer to that milestone.
Thankfully, my late-night Amazon browsing opened the door to a new technology that allows me to enjoy some TV noise without the harsh blue light of my bedroom television: a Bluetooth sleep mask. Unlike your grandmother’s silky eye covering, a Bluetooth sleep mask can wirelessly connect to your phone, tablet, or any other Bluetooth-capable device. Out of all the products I’ve tried, the Topoint Bluetooth Sleep Eye Mask ($21, Amazon) never moves out of place and is easily the most comfortable—especially for side sleepers. Whether it’s a meditation or the same episode of Portlandia I’ve watched 10,000 times, enjoying a little background noise without the intrusive light of the TV has made all the difference in my rest this past year.
If you prepare that in the planning phase, then you’ve taken out all of the need for energy at a time when you suspect that energy might be depleted,” Chan Hellman, Ph. D., founding director of the Hope Research Center at the University of Oklahoma, tells SELF. And the act of planning in a nurturing way can be comforting, Lisa Butler, Ph. D., associate professor in the School of Social Work at the University at Buffalo, tells SELF. Some of my favorite meals and ingredients to make in large batches are whole grains, beans/legumes, soup, stew, chili, braised meat/poultry, sauce, and casseroles,” Abbie Gellman, M. S., R.D., C.D.N., registered dietitian and chef at the Institute of Culinary Education, tells SELF. Rachael Hartley, R. D., certified intuitive-eating counselor and owner of Rachael Hartley Nutrition, tells SELF that vegetable side dishes don’t usually freeze well, with the exception of stewed leafy greens frozen with a bit of stewing liquid.
