As the month of March continues, so does the celebration of National Women’s History month. Earlier this month, we shared some of Angela’s favorites including the best of beauty, fashion, food, supplements, workouts and more. (You can check out the full list of favorites here). In this second edition, we will share Angela’s favorite books, mind hacks, mottos, movie/television picks and travel recommendations.
Angela loves to read a variety of books. From food to getting things done to parenting, Angela has a variety of favorite finds. Her current read? “Signs by Laura Lynne Jackson. A particular quote from her current that she is particularly fond of, “Ask and look for signs from the universe.” If you’re not open to them, you won’t see them!
Angela is also a fan of Peter Crone, also known as the ‘Mind Architect, who once said, “Pure inner peace is the ability to free yourself from the shackles of your subconscious.” Wow! Now that’s deep.
If she’s not working her mind with the Synctuition App or catching up on podcasts with Peter Crone, she’s reading Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess by Dr. Caroline Leaf. “It’s the best book on how to self-regulate and master mind management.”
Got a teen in your life? Angela recommends There is Nothing Wrong with You by Cheri Huber. Here are some of Angela’s other favorite literary finds:

Favorite Mind Hacks
Angela knows it’s important to stay physically active, but she also knows it’s just as important to keep her mind active and sharp. Her favorite app to help keep her mind in shape is the Synctuition App. “[This app] has over 10 years of data behind it, which shows that [using] this app for 20 minutes daily, is like 4 hours of meditation on your brain. It plays these tones that you can’t hear, but that your brain absorbs. [The] brain waves then get pulled into gamma waves or meditation waves. The effects are outstanding!”
Another app Angela enjoys is the 3 Good Things App. “[You] write down three things that happened to you each day that you are grateful for. Before you know it, you’ll be going through life noticing the good things more and more!”
A few things Angela is currently thankful for are her three beautiful children. “[They are one of my] proudest life accomplishments. [They] are contributing members of society, kind and compassionate individuals, and have a good disposition towards life.” Her second proudest moment? “TRIBALI.”
One of Angela’s core values is self-reliance, so “It makes me really happy when my kids show signs of independence and are able to figure things out and problem solve on their own.”
Many of us may have a collection of quotes or mounds of mottos that we have picked up over the years and Angela has a few herself, but one of her favorites comes from the Greek philosopher, Plato. “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” Now those are words to live by.
If you are looking for some genuine gems or nuggets of knowledge, Angela would be more than happy to lend you a few of her favorites. If a particular motto or quote resonates strongly with you, write it down and place it somewhere you will see everyday like your bathroom mirror or make it into a background for your phone or computer.
We all need a good show or movie to binge watch from time to time and if you are interested in checking out one (or all) or Angela’s favorites, here are a few of her recommendations:
- Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce
- Money Heist
- Schitt’s Creek
- Spiral (French with English subtitles)
- The Queen’s Gambit
- The Undoing
- Your Honor
Favorite Travel Spots
Although Angela grew up in Greece, she now resides with her family in California, which means she is one of the best people to ask for travel recommendations. If you are ever in the Pasadena area, she recommends checking out The Magnolia House for nibbles and craft cocktails and if you’re planning a trip to Greece, Angela says her favorite destination spots are Mykonos or Santorini. She even has hotel recommendations. Her bucket list travel destination? The Maldives and Thailand.
