When my friends at Spaweek.com suggested I put out a free challenge for the holidays, immediately I remembered the inspiring video I had watched over and over on youtube about the Aussie who returned home with nothing but the clothes on his back and started the FREE HUGS Campaign a few years ago.
It was amazing. It brought a smile to my heart and I thought to myself — that’s it!
Thus, my Holiday Hugs Challenge was born.
We’ve already gotten a ton of people committed to this. Some have up to 100+ per day!
I think you may like the soundtrack I selected, created by my dear friend and fellow Joyologist Jason Mraz.
We even coined ‘Hugging Yoga’ which is designed to stretch your heart :) xoxo
The back story for me is that I love hugging. I have waited in line several times for hours on end to get one short hug from Amma and it was worth it each time. In my heart I know it has something to do with the loss of my mother and the great healing that takes place when I go heart to heart with people, especially strangers!
I hug just about everyone I meet.
Some people think this is strange.
Some love it.
Some welcome it with open arms.
It’s easy to hug someone you know, but what about a complete stranger?
Are you up for the challenge?
(you don’t actually have to hug any strangers though! Unless you want to ;)

Many blessings to you.
Love! Stretch Your Heart! xoox
