Healthy Mind: Feed Your Brain - Issues Annex

by Ari Takata-Vasquez

We made it to the end of January! What better way to congratulate yourself than with a magazine to feed your brain’s creative desires. We’ve just opened our Issues Annex inside Viscera (yes, that Issues — everyone’s favorite spot to browse hundreds of incredible, hard-to-find magazines). Well there are now plenty of magazines available to browse and purchase right in Downtown Oakland!

Whether you consider yourself a creative person or not, you ARE creative. We all make creative decisions every day, from our outfit choices to choosing dinner ingredients. Being consciously creative, however, requires inspiration. Viscera carries a select number of magazines to help you find and express your creative vision, whether that be through art, architecture, fashion, and more. Reading magazines is a great way for you to practice self-care if you’re the type of person who absorbs information through visuals.

It’s time we stop pretending like consuming/learning about great art is not important for our mental health. As a human species we are naturally attracted to pretty things! Taking time to browse and find joy in those pretty things is the first step toward a positive 2018.

Come by the shop, have a seat, drink some Antiquity Juice, and browse our curated selection of magazines today!
