  1. Great advice (as always), Brooke! I’m now going to go for a run (even though I want to lounge around)! ;)

    I absolutely agree with this Brooke. I practice the same things to get myself unstuck. It is tough to get out there and do things sometimes ~ but I ALWAYS feel better when I do!

      Lucy,
      Welcome home! I’m glad you’re back. Maybe you could throw a little French dinner party so you could re-live your vacation and get yourself out of that post-vacation lull! xoxoxo, B

    This post spoke to me. I have been in a rut for so long that I have made it my home. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for this reminder, Brooke! I’ve been reading a lot of Pema Chodron lately (I am indebted to you for recommending ‘When Things Fall Apart!’) and it’s led me to try to make friends with my fears by pushing away from habits and leaning into discomfort, knowing that it will open my heart, body and mind. For me, that means things like making myself go to yoga on days like yesterday when I would have rather watched Netflix under my covers. It also meant sticking with the class even though the poses were unfamiliar and telling myself that the entire class would be a practice in siting with the uncomfortable. It was. I did. And I am filled with gratitude for it.

    Also, I don’t know if you do have Netflix, but I would recommend the documentary Happy to you and to all your comment readers who want a reminder or perhaps a different perspective on how different people create happiness.
