Stoked on the Season

It’s that time of year again and we intend on soaking up every last bit of holiday cheer. There will always be one extra thing on your to-do list or one more “mega sale” to shop; but we are here to say drop the expectations of a picture-perfect Martha Stewart holiday and just ride the wonderful wave December brings.

 

REASONS TO BE STOKED ON THE SEASON:

 

THE GREAT OUTDOORS 

There is something magical about this time of year: the crispness in the air, the twinkling of the lights and the sprinkling of snow around us. Take time outside for fresh oxygen and fun winter adventures such as sledding, skiing, snowboarding and ice-skating. Go for a stroll with a loved one or take your furry friend out for a spontaneous winter wonderland excursion.

 

HOLIDAY MOVIES

What’s a better way to relax and spend some well-deserved downtime then curled up with a mug of something warm and a few holiday favorites? Feel like a kid again with The Grinch or Home Alone. Throw it back, black and white style, with the classic films It’s a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street. Grab a cuddle buddy, some mistletoe and put on Love Actually or The Holiday. And don’t forget to tune in to see if Ralphie shoots his eye out in The Christmas Story.

 

QUALITY FAMILY TIME

This is the time of  year to put aside the differences, embrace the quirks and simply enjoy each others’ company. Reminisce on the good times, laugh at the ridiculous stories and make new memories for the years to come.

 

PRESENTS

We all know how the saying goes: “it is better to give than receive.” There is an unmatched sense of joy that comes with finding the perfect gift for someone and then seeing that look on their face when they open it…but, c’mon, getting gifts is pretty awesome too! Appreciate both the spirit of giving and receiving this month- while remembering that the main goal is to spread joy.

 

FOOD

Go ahead, indulge! When you love your body and nourish it regularly, it can handle a little splurge here and there. At MJF, we are big believers in balance. This isn’t the time to stress over calories and weight- that will only release cortisol into your body and slow your digestion. Simply savor the wonderful family feasts, the holiday cookies and the festive cocktails without any guilt or judgement. We promise we will be here to get you back on track! After all, that’s what New Year’s resolutions are for.

 

So eat, drink, laugh, love and be merry because it really is the most wonderful time of year!

Back to Cool

unnamed-1

Just because Labor day is a faded memory and we can no longer wear white, doesn’t mean that summer is over. Summer isn’t officially over until September 21st, so embrace the summer vibes for one more week!

 

Enjoy the great outdoors.  Go for nature walk, or if you’re so inclined  a hike. Soak up sun and get your daily dose of vitamin D. Sleep out under the stars. Does it still count as camping if your’e in your back yard- we’ve all agreed it does.

 

Go for a swim. before the next swim you will be able to go for is the polar bear dive, get yourself into the ocean, your pool,  your neighbor’s pool,  rooftop pool hopping- just take the plunge.

 

Savor the fresh fruit that will soon go out of season. Seasonal fruit is more flavorful, more affordable, and filled with more of its natural nutritional content. We believe the most righteous fruit is local, fresh, and organic. Check out localharvest.org to find a farmers’ market near you.

 

Star gaze. The nights are getting a little chillier, so throw on your favorite flannel, grab a blanket or two, find someone to cuddle up with, and admire the beauty of the night sky.

 

Grab some MJF! Just because the season is over doesn’t mean the juices have stopped flowing. Actually the opposite. Our Montauk location is staying open, but we will also be extending our reach. Cleanses and deliveries are available,  pop-ups are popping, and awesome new products and merchandise will be rolling out! So be on the look out.
