This Earth Day, a new River of Recycling will be flowing on the Johns Hopkins University "beach."

This Earth Day, a new River of Recycling will be flowing on the Johns Hopkins University “Beach.”

Bridget Parlato was fed up with the trash littering her daily Patterson Park walks. So she rolled up her sleeves and founded Baltimore Trash Talk and launched the 5¢ bottle-and-can exchange River of Recycling. With another River of Recycling and trash art exhibition planned for this Earth Day, and the Baltimore Office of Sustainability’s big push in finding solutions to our town’s litter, Charm City may actually get more charming.

Weekly Wellness Tip – Trust Your Gut

0 Written by: | Saturday, Apr 11, 2015 10:00am

20150411_091804Trust Your Gut
When it comes to making decisions you should trust your gut reaction. However, if you have troubles doing that you can try this simple exercise from Gabrielle Bernstein:

Grab a coin then think about the choices you are mulling over. Name choice number one heads and choice number two tails. Then flip the coin. Immediately after the coin toss, ask yourself how you feel. Are you happy and excited by the verdict or anxious and frightened? The honest response is your truth.
The coin flip lets you mentally step back from the decision and distance yourself from the “chatter” that is going on in your head, so that, ultimately, you can recognize your own instincts.

(Ref: Miracles Now; Gabrielle Bernstein)
