#1 MEET YOUR BUSINESS GOALS

#2 TAKE AN ART TRIP ABROAD
Tate Britain announced that in 2019 it will temporarily strip its free galleries of any works by male artists, and rehang the collection to celebrate its female-forged pieces. Titled “60 Years,” the exhibition will represent more than 60 works—including sculpture, painting, photography, and film—from 30 women who have played a critical role in shaping British art over the past 60 years.

#3 ADD INTELLECT TO YOUR WELLNESS ROUTINE
With the influx of work deadlines, family time, travel and depleted budgets, this time of year can easily spiral into complete chaos—making it the perfect opportunity to begin or restart a meditation practice. We’re tuning into Untangle, a weekly podcast that dives deep into how to train your brain with advice from neuroscientists, authors, experts and thought leaders.
#4 OVERHAUL YOUR INSTAGRAM FEED
Instead of promoting slimming teas, hair vitamins or trendy eyewear, these Instagram influencers are walking the halls of Congress and joining protests in Nancy Pelosi’s office. Vogue highlights the women of the congressional freshman class—including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib—who are revolutionizing politics and social media.

#5 BRUSH UP ON WOMEN IN LITERARY HISTORY
It’s not technically a full-blown Christmas movie, but scenes of New England snowfall and challenged gender norms in the 1994 film “Little Women” have a way of putting us in the holiday spirit. We recently revisited the adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic and fell in love with the March sisters all over again, as they confront financial shortages, family tragedies and growing pains, all while rethinking the female identity in Civil War-era America.
