5 lessons to help you navigate big change (aka things we’ve learned while making big change).

Since we opened our doors in April 2015 you’ve known us to be full of fun and wise with wellness tips. Most importantly though, you know us as regular humans who drink milkshakes, swear and also mediate, and who have just as much real life to handle as anyone else. As wellness people who also happen to be business people, you’d think we might be exempt from stress and tough decisions because we can be … Read More

Guest Blog: I am not my flaws.

Have you ever felt resentment or anger towards someone who hurt you in a relationship? If you have, you’re not alone. I have too. Let me tell you the story of how I got through it. In 2012, I met the most amazing guy on match.com. We’ll call him David. He was tall, dark and handsome, a Texas native, proud veteran, boisterous, and he made me laugh until it hurts. That’s what got me, the … Read More

Podcast – Wellness Unlocked: Simple Fertility

Do the words simple and fertility actually go together? We think they do, and we realize this is not necessarily an easy or pretty topic. So, you’ll have to tune in to see why we’d name an episode with these two words together. This is an episode all about fertility – how we define it, the good – the bad – and the ugly. So no matter whether you have babies, want babies, are having … Read More

A lack of underwear and other humorous moments.

It’s been a busy few weeks for Third Space as we settle into our new location… and with the hours we’ve been keeping, which we are embarrassed to even publish (so we won’t), it’s been a real trip. We are learning some great lessons along the way, one of the best reminders is how human we are. And, being the consummate professionals we like to think we are (both in wellness and business), we’ve been humbled … Read More

The light at the end of the alcohol fast tunnel

I have seen and soaked in the light at the end of the tunnel!   My husband and I went alcohol-free for 71 straight days. It started on January 1st and ended on March 13th. That’s the Friday before Saint Patrick’s day – if you’re wondering about the random number. It is our fourth year doing this fast together. You can read about why we do this annual challenge here. This year’s fast coincided with … Read More

A brief story on non-attachment

Things are not going well at work. I will spare you the details but the bottom line is that I have gotten too attached to the outcome of this “day job.” I have expended too much energy and surrendered too much of my peace of mind to the situation. I did not win. I could not win. As a result my chi suffered. Dearly. I was walking around with a cloud of unpleasantness around me like Pig … Read More

Loss: my greatest teacher.

These two expressions are energetic matches as it is our capacity to know something is valuable that leads to our expression of grief when something is lost. In loss, the preciousness of what we value is illuminated and can inspire us to move forward after the loss with greater intention and respect … Read More
