Are you torturing yourself unnecessarily?

Here’s a quick update on the UnGrinching, my sabbatical and what’s coming next!

If you’re new here… Welcome to Love!

We usually send out emails more often with lots of useful and entertaining info around how not to torture yourself . . . and to practice taking really good care of yourself instead. But as some of you know, I’ve been on a sabbatical this month. Trying to do just that! (Which means less emails).

And it looks as if it’s been all unicorns and rainbows, right? Well at least all forest bathing and wave watching.  It hasn’t.  But it’s been eye opening to say the least. But before I get in to any of that…. here’s a quick update on the UnGrinching and what happens next!


It’s almost time to tally up the hearts on your Grinch Cards and find out! And in case you missed out… there’s still time!  You might not get the MOST stamps, but you still might win one of the LOVESTRONG swag bags! (I’ve been shopping ; )

So GET YOUR GRINCH ON and get in here!  You can create that amazing deep sense of calm and clarity that your mind and body are craving! Winners announced on Oct. 31st! 

After that, we’ll be introducing more fun Holiday Shenanigans that help us all to connect, practice and feel amazing all year long… not just after the kids are back in school and the holidays are over! Lol… this year… I intend to enjoy every single day of the holiday season.  And for those of you that know me… or experience that struggle yourself… you’ll get it.

I’m still not going to participate in offering candy to strange and creepy children that knock at the darkness in my neighborhood. I’m still not going to shop frantically  shoving knick knacks into sacks for savings on Black Friday. And I’m not going to freak out over every piece of holiday gourmet that crosses my path over the coming season. Because the wreath cookies my mom makes are the best things to ever happen to December. E V E R. (Plus, there will be more of Yats’s Truffles).

What I WILL be doing . . . . is Walking more. Sleeping better. And Practicing. Practicing  all the smart and soulful things I’ve learned through yoga and meditation and creating new and wonderful LOVESTRONG experiences for all of us to enjoy together.

Be back soon!

Much Love,

p.s. Oh! I almost forgot. The new list of LOVESTRONG Hikes is coming up this week.  We’re thinking Koosah, Horserock, Alsea and more!  Remember… these are not endurance challenges. They are our way of getting outside without torturing ourselves! If I can do it. You can do it. Seriously. Talk to me about these if you’re at all curious. And watch your email in the next two days for the list so you can save the dates!
