At Light Years, we believe that inspiration can come from anywhere. Through Light Years Likes, we’ll be sharing a weekly round-up of our team’s favourite picks ranging from music, apps, design, podcasts, shows, events, article and more – providing a little insight into who we are and the way we think.
In this week’s edition, we learn how to be great, read more for cheap, and buy cheap masks for good.
1. The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes
The School of Greatness is a podcast hosted by Lewis Howes, a lifestyle entrepreneur, New York Times bestselling author, and former pro athlete. Each episode spotlights a brilliant mind in business, a world class athlete or an influential celebrity to help you figure out what makes great people great. Topics uncovered include relationships, money management, forgiveness, and habits. The lesson is: if you’re not born great, learn how to become great.
The School of Greatness is streaming on Spotify and Apple.
2. NLB Mobile and OverDrive
Imagine if you channeled those hours staring blankly into your phone into reading a book. With the NLB Mobile and OverDrive apps, you can start reading books off your phone – for free! Simply sign up for an account on NLB – you can do this via the website instead of downloading the app. And then download the OverDrive app, which is where you’ll search through the digital repository of books and audiobooks available to you via your NLB membership. For recommendations, follow @readingnationsg on Instagram. Don’t judge the ho-hum handle by its name. An offshoot of the National Reading Movement SG by NLB, the account offers great content that ranges from book recommendations to cartoons that bookworms can relate to.
NLB Mobile and OverDrive are available for download on Apple and Google Play.
3. Pomelo reusable masks
Anywhere that’s selling masks you don’t have to beg, borrow or steal from, is a great find. Pomelo, an online fashion store, is one such resource. They’re selling reusable cloth masks that come in packs of three, and each mask can be reused for up to 10 washes. According to Pomelo, the masks are made from a quick-dry and antibacterial cotton fabric that’s certified by Oeko-Tex, the globally recognised and trusted testing system for ecologically safe textiles. Better yet, all profits from masks purchased will be donated to hospitals in your community to purchase medical equipment.
Shop the Pomelo reusable masks going at S$9 for a pack of three here.
4. CNA Lifestyle’s Singapore F&B Businesses Offering Islandwide Delivery directory
This pandemic may have put a pause on many things, but it hasn’t put a dampener on Singaporeans’ love for food. Comprehensive directories like CNA Lifestyle’s F&B Businesses Offering Islandwide Delivery is a great resource to refer to on days when you feel like an indulgence is in order, or on Friday nights, to mark the end of the work week and the start of the weekend, because, you know, the lines are starting to blur. Above all, by ordering from these F&B businesses, we’re helping to keep them afloat, and that’s a win-win situation for all parties involved.
