When you think of Gaza today,do not forget those that were mercilessly killed in 2008-09 and 2012. Don’t forget the many that were and continue to be killed in the West Bank. Don’t forget Sabra and Shatila. Don’t forget Tel al Zaatar. Don’t forget Black September Don’t forget the 1956 Rafah+Khan Younis massacres. Don’t forget Deir Yassin. Don’t forget Al-Tantura. Don’t forget the many other brutal massacres. Don’t forget 1948.
i don’t know where to begin…i don’t know if this anxious feeling ive been feeling inside of me is due to school/work stress or it is because of the chaos and destruction going on in the world…or a combination of both. today my high school was caught on fire(no one was on campus, school starts in a week) causing the roof to collapse in one of the buildings and basically burning it down.no one knows the details, the fire fighthers just showed up and put it down. this hit me so hard because i feel as if its a catalyst to something much greater than us. this is no ordinary “accident” who the fuck would burn down a school?

Six simple rituals:
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh.
2. Define your top 3. Every morning ask yourself, “What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?” Prioritizes your day accordingly and don’t sleep until the Top 3 are complete.
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between. Spend your 10 minutes getting away from your desk, going outside, calling friends, meditating, or grabbing a glass of water.
4. Move and sweat daily. Regular movement keeps us healthy and alert. It boosts energy and mood, and relieves stress.
5. Express gratitude. Gratitude fosters happiness. Each morning, think of at least five things you’re thankful for. In times of stress, pause and reflect on these things.
6. Reflect daily. Bring closure to your day through 10 minutes of reflection. Asks yourself, “What went well?” and “What needs improvement?”
