Happy Holidays

By Mark Sisson

Happy HolidaysIn the dim light of morning here, I’m thinking we’ll all wake up to varying ways of observing the day. Whether or not yours is a spiritual celebration today, there’s something to the collective tradition and cultural pause.

We might gather with ones we love or send our greetings from afar. We might share our meal and company today with strangers in either friendly camaraderie or personal service. We might spend the day in intentional or ambivalent solitude. Whatever your circumstances and celebration, however, I hope the day offers you the chance to recharge your physical self, to enjoy the experiences and connections that fill you, to honor the good in your life past and present.

I know I’m grateful today for my health, for my family and friends, for valued work and for the gracious and inspiring community here. With best wishes to each and every one of you, happy holidays….

  1. Merry Christmas to all–or choose your assorted holiday greeting–and Mark and the staff let me add one thing to Groktimus Primal– take the day off with pay!

    Thanks for this wonderful source of primal info and the primal followers who are a constant source of encouragement and inspiration!

  2. I’m sure the Groks in the Northern hemisphere had cause to celebrate today as the days begin to grow longer again.

  3. Happy Holidays, Mark! Thanks for this wonderful resource, and looking forward to what is to come in 2015!

  4. Happy holidays from Australia! I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing break. On a personal note I’m happy to report that staying primal this festive season has been the easiest this year (out of the past 4 years). On Christmas Day I stuck to lots of good-quality meat, salad and roast vegies, and I’ve been doing sprints and some partner WODs with my fiance. Life is good! Feeling very grateful and happy.
