Geri Hirsch, founder of Because I’m Addicted, is a proud California girl, born and raised in L.A. After finishing business school and feeling unfulfilled at her first job, she began blogging as a creative outlet. Since 2005, she’s been sharing her favorite recipes, fashion inspirations, and tips on how to live a fulfilling, balanced lifestyle. You can find Geri and her wellness-obsessed husband in L.A.—exploring, listening to old records, and planting in their organic garden. We’re thrilled to have her on as a contributor for THE/THIRTY, where she’ll be sharing her health and diet tips each month.

“Indulge” is a funny word, isn’t it? It’s something we are told to (“indulge in more self-love”) and not to do (“don’t overindulge in sweets”). And during the holidays, it’s an especially confusing term! While I personally think everyone is capable of figuring out what’s best for them, I do think there’s one thing we can all agree to indulge in this season: peace! After all, it’s a crazy time of year, and if anything can use a bit of calmness, it’s our minds. So if you want to give your brain a little love in the form of indulgence this season, read on.
