Taking Breaks - You Know It's Good for You

Taking breaks. We all know it's good for us. Sometimes it can be so hard to do.

Last week, I took most of the week "off". Not completely off, but just as in allowing myself not to do anything other than the absolute necessary to keep things humming along, which mainly means answering the questions from y'all. And, interestingly enough, last week also broke the record for the most new paying customers signing up in a week. Coincidence? Maybe :)

My Friday was exceptionally great. Had a really...

Working Like Every Day is Vacation Day

This is the introduction to this week's newsletter, which I figured I might just as well post here on the blog.

This whole business of making every day feel like a vacation continues to work like gangbusters for me. I'm knocking out features left and right, and enjoying every moment of it. It doesn't feel like work at all.

Life hacking experiments: Fasting

I like to experiment with different "life hacks". From changing my name based in numerology, to spending a year in India practicing yoga daily at 4am, to going vegetarian for 5 months, to going without alcohol for 5 months, to blood tests, DNA tests, supplements, detoxing, energy healing, and much much more.

These days, I'm trying out something new: Fasting. I've done two days of fasting before, at the tail end of a 3-week detox cleanse. It was interesting to do the two days, but I haven't...
