Do something about it
Life is all about choices. The choices you make either take you a step toward, or away from achieving your goals. So the next time you catch yourself complaining, ask yourself if you’re just being a grumpy old jerk, or if you can do something to change it.
Usually, you can change it. Tonight, at lululemon howell mill, I’m teaching a class with my buddy Anna Russ, on how we can all change our lives for the better, by incorporating paleo and ayurvedic principles into every day life.
Anna is an Ayurveda guru (I’m giving her that title. I don’t even know if Ayurveda has gurus) and a master of helping people simplify and improve their lives.
She’ll give a basic introduction into Ayurveda including a dosha quiz. Ayurveda stresses a balance of three elements or doshas – the idea is that we each possess a unique combination of doshas that determine our temperament and characteristics.
When your doshas are out of balance, that’s when you fall into grumpy jerk territory… or experience anxiety, inflammation, irritability, etc, etc (it kinda depends on the imbalance). Sounds a bit frustrating.You could look here for a natural remedy.
After meeting a few times, Anna and I realized that paleo & Ayurveda have a lot in common. Both emphasize being good to yourself, through nourishment with not only healthy foods but also healthy thoughts.
So I hope you’ll join us tonight, at lululemon howell mill from 6:30 to 8pm, for our free Paleo Veda 101 workshop, to learn more about paleo & Ayurveda. As you can tell, I could go on and on about this stuff, because I really believe in it. So quit talking about improving your life and come learn how to actually do it.
And also: FREE FOOD.
Drat, I should have led with the free food. Chef V from Edesia Meals – a delicious paleo meal delivery service – is also bringing some paleo grub to the event tonight and my girl Sam will have samples of her freaking delicious PALEO BROWNIES. Om nom nom nom.
