9 ways we hope to lower holiday stress

How are you doing with the holidays so far? Tell me… do you love them? Dread them? What do you love about them? What do you dread? I’m looking for ideas here. We have some below but I love hearing yours.

I don’t like saying it but it’s the reason behind the UnGrinching. I’ve mostly dreaded them in the past. Obviously I’m mocking myself a little but these UnGrinching shenanigans have led to the creation of the LoveStrong Hikes, the Grinch Cards, The Solstice Express and the Gnomes. So it’s feeling more lighthearted every year. By next year I’ll have you all singing Jingle Bells around the neighborhood with me!

Here’s the dates and details of what’s coming up next if you’re still feeling Grinchy.

1. Free Jade Yoga Mat w/ a new 6-12 month membership!
Consistency matters. Consistent practice is scientifically proven to lower stress. It’s Simple! If you haven’t tried it yet, we’ll help you get started with a brand new mat! Sign up for the 6 mo. or the 12 mo. membership during December… while supplies last.
2. The Gnome Explosion Contest
Pick up your Gnome Explosion Card and start collecting stamps for the December drawing. The more stamps, the more chances to win our fabulous Holiday Gift Basket. Ask anyone, all our gift baskets have been fabulous this year! It’s worth it! Drawing Dec. 24th.

3,4,5 & 6
