Whether or not you think New Years is overrated, we're convinced there’s some sort of magic about it.
This year, instead of adding more “to-dos” to my New Years resolution list, we're taking a cue from Yogi and focusing on doing less.
My dog is a simple dude, he doesn’t commit himself to much but when it comes to the things he cares about, he does them right. Naps (like a boss), napping while sitting (like a boss with private helicopter), enjoying dinner (never checks his Instagram while he’s at it), getting excited about every single ‘walk’ he’s ever been on (it’s like an Oprah Winfrey “give-away” four times a day, everyday), a good stretch (between ALL activities). Plus, besides his extensive geode collection he only owns like 6 things (yes, they’re all collars).
I’m not saying I’m going to take up all his habits (I just don’t have the right hairstyle for rolling in dead fish) but there’s something to be said about honing in on what brings your life the most fulfillment and giving yourself permission to start letting go of the rest.
If you’re looking for some inspiration here’s a list Yogi helped me put together:
- Spending less time checking my email in bed, so I can spend more time blowing raspberries on his belly.
- Spending less time trying to do everything perfect at Beast and Babe (you may find a typo or too), so that I can focus on creating 'the raddest', best quality, collars and leashes in the history of the universe.
- Spending less time wondering why Trader Joe’s discontinued my favorite mustard- while I’m in the shower, so I have more time to appreciate how awesome a warm shower feels.
- Spending less time holding onto things that are just “stuff” so I have more room to appreciate items that bring beauty and meaning to my life.
Wishing you a happy and clear New Year-
