The Newton Edition [Mollie's Monday Obsessions v.84]

Can we all agree that these are surreal times?

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

So how can we find the silver lining in all of this? I recently stumbled across this piece of wisdom (shoutout to Sara Blakely, creator of Spanx for posting), and I think it can serve as a helpful rubric to navigate this global timeout we’re all in.

During the Great Plague of London, Newton was forced to stay home and as a result invented a number of incredible things, notably the laws of gravity! #NBD

What if we were to also shift our relationship to this period of isolation to a time of opportunity? And in the context of this email, cause a breakthrough in our sleep! So many of my clients actively set up their lives to avoid being with their thoughts. What if we were to embrace this new-found time with ourselves to take control of our lives now. If you’re on board, see below for resources that can help make a difference in that endeavor.

💻Resource: Checklist, Monday Medley Newsletter,
Shopping List for Prepping Supplies I enjoy this guy's (Nathaniel Eliason) newsletters, and this week he sent out another gem and included his supply list during this wild time. Because an essential element of great sleep is doing what we need to do during our days so that we can have peace of mind during our night, I wanted to include the document he created. Hopefully, you can use this to cross-check that you are all set and spur critical thinking of additional items that might not be listed but are essential to you. Is there anything else that you find invaluable to have during this collective ‘hunkering down’ period? Please reply to this email and let me know!
