Do you feel spent and tired at the end of your day? Are professional and social obligations keeping you away from activities that really fulfill you?  Join The FixSocial Workout and Hyde Yoga and take a mini-vacation from your daily grind. Starting on Wednesday, March 14, we challenge you to live entirely sober for 14 days AND to devote at least 30 minutes to personal time— which means unplugging all your devices and computers, turning off your TV, and indulging in a solitary activity that brings you real pleasure. Pick up your old trumpet, try out a new recipe, or kick back with a great new book. The key to this experiment is to allow no interruptions—this time is reserved just for you! Our pals at Social Workout will help you track your progress and put you in touch with other motivated people. And as a reward for sticking it out, you'll receive a $25 coupon from Hyde Yoga for purchases over $50. If you’re looking for further inspiration, check out Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's new book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, which explains why taking some time for yourself is essential for long-term happiness.
