“Life is a flow of love, only your participation is requested.” – Yogi Bhajan
Happy Sunday, Daybreaker Fam!
You know those lyrics from Cheers: “be glad there’s one place in the world where everybody knows your name.” These sentiments aren’t just nice ideas or catchy phrases — they’re critical to our health and happiness.
A poignant read just surfaced in the NY Times about how vital it is we “put our roots down” and participate in our chosen community. Take a few mins to read how real the loneliness epidemic is — and how you can combat the feeling.
Conversations like these are what fuel our fire and keep us creating tirelessly.
Next week, 35+ of our Daybreaker Producers and Community Catalysts will come together to explore ways to deepen the sense of belonging in Daybreaker cities across the world. This will be our Second Annual Daybreaker Producer Summit and we are concocting exciting mischief and magic for 2019.
We also announced the ?San Diego Launch? happening Saturday, December 15th. It takes a village to get the magic in motion, so if you have friends in SD, send them this link. ? Here’s to another beautiful city who’s said “F-yes” to connecting fearlessly.
Remember our move-ment exists for a reason. Next time you peruse our calendar of sunrise experiences, invite someone to come dance with you.? Find ’em here.?
THIS WEEK’S LISTEN: How To Release Your Happy Brain Chemicals (Naturally) And Stop Feeling Lonely… ?
Daybreaker co-founder, Radha, just chatted with Jim Kwik of the #KwikBrain Podcast about how despite being more connected than ever by social media — the level of loneliness people feel these days has skyrocketed.
Pop in your earbuds to hear Radha and Jim chat about things like:
✨How to design and create a deep sense of community with your friends and work team
✨How to release the happy brain chemicals (Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, Endorphins)
✨How to feel less lonely by prioritizing finding friends who give you that feeling of “ahhh, I’m home”
Then Come Dance & Yoga IRL
A taste into what we’ve been scheming…
✨For SF, imagine: our first experience outdoors at the new Winter Park at Civic Center, skate rink access, ugly sweater magic…
✨For CHI, imagine: a Winter Solstice Ball, twinkle lights, igloos (you’ll see), “snowball” fights, wear something festive…
We’re taking over Stan Mansion, CHI…
✨ For MIA, imagine: floating 50 stories high to the rooftop of the W Miami, pool party, flamingos, yoga and sunshine…
What Happened While Dancing✨
“Dancing in the morning surrounded by happy people was a spiritual experience. Today has been the best day that I’ve had in almost a year…
I’ve been surprisingly clear headed all day.
It’s amazing what a little dancing will do.” ?
– Andrea T.
[ FIND YOUR HAPPIER PLACE ? ]
I’m sorry, what?
plogging: the act of picking up litter while you jog ?
It’s a new trend in eco-exercise. Before the temps plunge, try this out while you’re semi-bundled up. This is the time of year when outdoor cleanup efforts are neglected, so squeeze one last eco-run in of the year. ❄️
Increasing your fitness while removing litter from your local trails and city?
Momma Earth, and your body will salute you.
This Week’s Intention✨(be kind.)
“To be kind is to respond with sensitivity and human warmth to the hopes and needs of others. Even the briefest touch of kindness can lighten a heavy heart. Kindness can change the lives of people.”
— Aung San Suu Kyi
See you on the dance floor soon. ?
