happy black friday! stay home, do yoga, buy nothing

Happy Thanksgiving, American friends! Up here in Canada, we ate turkey and felt gratitude last month, but I’m totally with you in spirit today. Giving thanks is one of my favourite things! And mindless consumerism is one of my least favourite things!

November 23 is Black Friday and, more importantly, Buy Nothing Day. While some yoga product retailers enable Black Friday spending:

… it’s my pleasure to disable your desire to shop. Be content with what you have. Stay home. Do yoga on a bare floor. Meditate. Sleep in. Make something. Cuddle.

This little video from the Story of Stuff people gives enough reason to avoid the malls, department stores and Internet sales tomorrow.
