Today's LoveBlog/LoveLetter is chock-full!
✨Today We will go over a question that was asked by a few students in The Love School, Help with habits. You'll get info on how to establish a habit, why you don't stick to a habit and tips for time management.
✨Next, I launched a new Masterclass - Love with Intention - 4 Essentials to get the relationship you've always wanted Sign up here: https://dorothystover.easywebinar.live/registration-1
✨And lastly, beginning today I would like to showcase people I know doing awesome things in the world. I want to help spread the word because there may be someone out there that needs or wants whatever they have to share. That's love I want to continue to see in the world. If you have an upcoming event, people let me know. These featured people will be in the PS section of every email. Keep scrolling to see this week's featured people.
✨And on to this week's Love Lesson, using love to establish habits.
✨A few of the students over in the love school have asked about helping with habits. I thought I would make a love lesson to help them as well as anyone else that need some tips for making a habit stick. When we talk about habits we are talking about a lifestyle change in a way. We are switching one way of doing something for something else.
✨We can use love for this. Love is the most powerful energy. Nothing is stronger than love.
✨To make a habit stick, we first need to know our priorities. If something is a priority, we will make the time for it. We will figure out how to make it work. The priority that most people are challenges with is making ourselves a priority. We were taught that's self indulgent or selfish. It's not. All those benefit when we care for ourselves.
✨Why a habit doesn't stick? You either don't love it or it's not a priority. If you don't love be it, find something you love. If it's not a priority, ask yourself why. Something to think about, while you are establishing a habit, something else may be put on the back burner. Once the habit is in place, bring whatever you had to put to the side back in the mix. Look at your priorities and make some decisions. Some of those decisions may be tough.
✨Loving something is the easiest way to make a change in your life. For example, if you're trying to workout more, then find a workout activity that you enjoy. There's so many ways to be active! And there's something for everyone. I sometimes play on a playground. I work my whole body this way and have fun.
✨Time management tricks
✨I set my tomorrow up tonight. Pick 3-5 things you are able to do tonight that will make your day easier tomorrow. For me, it's laying out my clothes, knowing my workout in the morning and knowing my priorities.
✨Next, what are 3-5 things you can do in the am to set yourself up for the day. Mine is make my bed, some form of activity like a workout or yoga and put in a load of laundry.

I'm ok if you make fun of me for this love lesson!
All jokes aside, perhaps you feel like you're the gardener in the relationship or maybe you feel like you're the flower. Either way, you don't know how to break out of this pattern or you don't want to. Maybe this will give you permission to do so. If you have a harmonious relationship, sometimes it means having your partner take care of you or you taking taking care of your partner.
It's important to do and be both at some point in your relationship. Think back to a time when you really needed a friend and they were there for you no questions asked. Think back to a time you were there for someone no questions asked. It feels good. It's important. And that's community. Your partner is just one part of your community. Take care of each other. Tend to each other. Give each other what they need. And of course, don't forget about your needs.

Do you know about soul contracts and how we have them with everyone we encounterRead More
Years ago, my friend Doug Smith planted the freedom seed within me. Over a decade ago he was making moves to be able to work from anywhere with his business True Nutrition . This inspired me. About five years ago, I also began moving toward that type of occupational freedom. I wanted to be able to work from anywhere and to be with those I love, to travel freely and not be tied to just one spot.
Now I have that freedom. I can be anywhere in the world, do what I love and contribute. I work every day and a few times a week, I wash my hair, throw it in rollers and plug away just like this. This is what I look like behind the scenes. I work from my bed when I'm home because my cat Jack will climb all over me if I work from a desk. So I brought the desk to the bed. He lays on my lap or beside me and I work away. I love it! Plus, the bed is where I get all my good ideas 💕
Last year I was able to pack myself and Jack up and help my family. While my mother was in the hospital, I was able to be with her and not think about an office I would have to get back to. Being with her during that time, and then having that freedom in the first few months of mourning her, was such a blessing. So many people don't have that luxury to really dig deep into their grief. I remember getting off the phone with a new client and then bursting into tears. I was alone with my cat. I could break down completely, then slowly put myself back together and go back to work when I felt ready to.
My office is always with me. In the coming months I'll be moving back to San Diego, but I’ll always have time for Nantucket. People ask, "what will you do out there?".
And my reply, "Same thing I'm doing now"!
Working from anywhere does have its challenges. I wake up and I start working. This isn't so much a challenge per se because I love what I do, but the boundaries are not quite clear. There are also days I'm not motivated and if you work from home or have your own business you need to stay motivated. No one is going to cover me or do the work for me. I am 100% responsible. Freedom is precious.💕
One of my gigs that allows me to work from anywhere is with a great company called @tawkify. I'm a matchmaker with them. If you're interested in learning more about being a matchmaker, direct message me and we can chat. If you're into love and helping people, this will be perfect for you!
I have spaces left for The Love School Feedback group. You'll have access to The Love School for life as well as a bunch of great goodies! Email me if you're interested email@example.com
Your health should be your number 1 priority. If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything. This includes your mental, emotional, Spiritual, financial and physical health. Everything is connected. If you feel good, those around you feel good. If you feel like crap, are moody or unstable those around you are effected. So, if you’re mental, emotional, spiritual, financial and physical health are not at a 100% most likely your Love life isn’t either. Side note. Relationship are not always in harmony all the time.
Don’t fret, it takes self care; checking in with yourself and doing the work that is needed to make sure you’re in good health. It means making yourself a priority. It means being selfish every now and then. It means saying no when you want to say no and asking for something when you need it. It means doing what you need to do even when others don’t agree or find it odd. How many of you want to eat better or work out but have others speaking out against it? I certainly know from experience, I had a mentor say to me years ago, “when are you going to gain weight?” I had been eating really well, exercising and taking care of myself. I felt amazing! But this person was insecure with themselves and most people don’t like others to change. Change scares people. And taking care of yourself is very scary to many. Do it! No matter what others think of you or say. Do what you need to do to feel at your best and healthy self. Let others deal with their insecurities .

I can't take credit for the following lists; 10 ways to love and 15 ways to show courage. A few weeks ago I saw the "10 ways to show love" posted on someone's desk and I couldn't help but love this list! Beautiful ways to show you love and care for someone in ways that not only doesn't cost a cent but also helps us to grow and show love to ourselves. When searching for this list yesterday I also found the courage list and felt they both went hand in hand, so I wanted to share them with you. The first list is ways to love from the bible. Im not religious but I do appreciate the stories and the teachings. I also pray everyday, all day. I was raised Catholic and I still go to mass on occasion but I don't follow or believe everything that one believes when they are Catholic. I suppose I would be a mixture of all the main religions. Regardless of where you stand, I thought these lists were powerful and truthful. Maybe you would even find them helpful. There's no love tip this week because these lists are full of ideas. Run away with the one that resonates with you the most.

Want to get hurt in life, love, work, relationships, parenting, or physical activity? Compete with others. While in yoga camp, aka yoga teacher training at Rishikesh Yog Peeth in India, one of my teachers stated that injury only occurs when we compete with others in the room. Isn't it the truth?! We look around to the people next to us. What are they able to do? Let me try to do that too. Then bam, a pulled muscle or we moved our body in a way it wasn't ready for yet.
Recently someone asked me if I practice yoga at other studios besides Dharma Yoga Nantucket. I said, of course. (Although, it's rare.) They kept talking about competition and business. I told them that it is not a competition. That's not what yoga is about. They didn't quite understand, and went on talking about if someone doesn't like your class they will go to someone else, etc. I eventually said, "there's no competition because there are plenty of people to teach for everyone." I didn't go into my viewpoint further because they dropped it once I said that. The core of Yoga isn't about competing. It's about going inwards, not outwards to others. People will be attracted to the teachers that will help them with what they need, when they need it. If someone doesn't like how I am guiding the class or what I am doing, I know there is someone better for them as well. There are students who enjoy how I teach and who I am as a teacher. I want each person, no matter if they are in class with me or with someone else, to receive whatever it is they need. It's not a competition. This can be applied to every area of one's life; when we compete we get hurt.
Don't worry about being better than anyone else. When we worry about being the better parent, about beating out other businesses, or when we compete with others for the affections of someone else, we will get hurt in the long run (or short run). It could be physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, or spiritually, but one way or another it comes back to bite us.
So how does one still succeed? We all have bills to pay, love we want to give and receive, awesome kids we want to raise, we want to have kickass bodies and be our best selves. How do we do this without competing with others? We listen to our hearts. Sounds cliche, I know but it works. And the more you do it, the more fine tuned this guide will become. Listening to your heart allows you to know which direction to go in. It shows you which lessons you need to learn and what is best for you- from food and exercise to the job you have. Listening to your heart is inner rather than outer work. You don't need others to tell you what is best for you. The biggest obstacle is letting go of your ego or your head. Your head or ego will want something but your heart will not. One trick to deciphering ego (head) from soul (heart) is the feeling you get. That lighter than air feeling. Ego wants things for you to make you look better. The heart wants things that make you feel better.
Lastly, if you must compete, compete with yourself. But even then do this with some forgiveness. I love the saying that not even a flower blooms all year. You don't have to either.

LoveBlog- Don't worry about it, you will get there. Five tips to help you live in the moment and enjoy life more.
What if I told you all paths lead to the same place? What if I told you, you don't need to stress because you'll get there. I was driving down milestone road on Nantucket Island the other day and I was going about 40mph. (I like the drive and a sweet song came on the radio, so I was taking my time.) a car decided to pass me. They had somewhere to be and by the looks of it, they were late. I saw them speed past me and fly down the road. While I was enjoying the drive and the music, I coasted. I took in the lovely day. Enjoyed the moment coming over a hill with the sun shining through the trees. When I got to the rotary guess which car was in front of me, yup, the speedster. They were in such a rush but for what? To get there first? We ended up at the rotary about the same time but who do you think enjoyed the drive? Who do you think was frustrated? I can almost guarantee their drive was stressful for them. Yet, here we both were.
We all, including myself, want things to be done yesterday or we want them now or we think we should be going faster or be somewhere else. The truth is, we are all on our way. No matter our pace, we are all going to get there. We won't miss out on anything if we slow down and enjoy the moment.
How how does one enjoy the moment? Or live in the moment as some say? I have a few quick tips for this.
1. Quick and dirty meditation. When you feel rushed. When you're running late. When you're about to beep your car horn. Do this. When you need one minute to yourself. Do this.
Meditation helps us bring our awareness away from the outside world and back inward. Then we have a fresh stance and outlook. The meditation: inhale slow,y through the nose for 4 counts. Hold the breathe for 4 counts. Exhale slowly through the nose for 6 counts. Repeat and repeat and repeat. 30 seconds to a minute will do the trick. If you can go longer, do so.
2. Write down your priorities. If you were to die tomorrow, God forbid, how would you spend today. Would you work? Leaving behind a business legacy. Or would you spend time with family and friends? Would you go climb a mountain or hop on a boat and sail away? However you would spend your day, those items are your priorities. Whatever they may be, is ok. Don't judge yourself if you want to spend all day working or want to spend all day by yourself. And give yourself permission to change your mind if your priorities change.
3. Remind yourself why you do what you do. Love is not hard, it's Life that is tough. When life gets in the way, remind yourself why you do what you do. My priority in my life is my family. Hands down. I don't feel bad for spending time with my family. I don't feel bad about dropping everything when someone I love needs me. And I certainly do not feel bad about clearing my schedule for them. But thats because they are why I do what I do. Know why do you what you do. Connect that to your priorities. This will help with the guilt or the need to explain why you do what you do. A lot of 'dos' in this tip.
4. Have faith. Faith can mean whatever you need it to mean. Whether it's your God or the universe or maybe it's faith with yourself. Have faith. You can do this.
5. Take care of yourself. Give yourself permission to take a break when you need to. Give yourself permission to be selfish. I'm not talking about the kind of selfish that doesn't care for anyone but themselves. I'm talking about the kind of selfish that goes to yoga or eats right or enjoys a massage. I'm talking about doing what needs to be done so you feel like you. Essentially, filling up your love tank. When you feel at your best, you are able to give your all and help those around you be their best. This just so happens to be today's Love Tip: Be selfish. Take care of yourself, so that you feel at your best. When you're at your best, you're able to help those around you be their best.
Do you have anything else to add that would help someone know to not worry, that they will get there?
Wednesday's Hatha yoga class will have an emphasis on the second chakra which is the sacral chakra. All about creativity, sexuality and being joyful. Come connect with what needs to be set free. 530pm Wednesday at Dharma Yoga Nantucket upstairs at the hayloft at Bartlett's Farm.

There are many reasons why someone won't attend a yoga class. Myself included. But the excuses are just that and shouldn't hold us back. Yoga is for everyone and every body. The benefits are incredible! There are physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and yes financial benefits. There's a study out there that makes the connection between a regular yoga practice with financial stability. Crazy right!
We know yoga can help us, so here are some excuses and how to overcome them.
Gassy. Aka farts
A few months ago, I had a friend say to me "I want to go to your class but I'm afraid I'll fart." You know what I say to this, "Who cares!" And here's why. 1. In almost every single one of my yoga books where the benefits of each pose are listed, included in the benefits are that the pose relieves gas. I will say, the more yoga one practices, the less gas they do have. All the twisting and bending and downward dogging wrings one out sort to speak. It's a natural process. Plus, there are a lot of yogis that are vegetarians and studies show that vegetarians are more gassy than meat eaters...or maybe I just read that on Twitter. Show we someone that practices yoga regularly who says they've never farted or passed gas in class and I'll show you a lier. It's happened to me once or twice. Sure, it's scary and you don't want to disrupt anyone's concentration but it is a natural process of the body. If you are nervous there are a few things you can do to help.
1. Drink more water through out the day.
2. Do not eat or drink an excessive amount of water an hour before class. This helps on many levels. Not eating or drinking an hour before class actually can help you with the poses and move deeper into them.
3. Sit at the edges of the room. Either to the sides, by the door or in the back of the room...maybe by a window will ease your mind.
4. If you feel a fart coming, you can always go to the bathroom or hallway.
5. If a fart sneaks up on you, just cough and then forget about it.
It's for women.
This just isn't true.
Traditional yoga in India is practiced by men. Nowadays, women are exposed to it but it's not the norm to walk into a yoga class and see a room full or women or a female teacher. The norm is men. But in the USA, it's a different story but that story is changing. More and more men are seeing the benefits of yoga and are enjoying themselves. I once taught a class that had more men than women.
I am not flexible.
Here's the deal here. Who truly is flexible? Dancers, gyminsits, as well as those that are naturally flexible. There are some days when I struggle to touch my toes and then others when I can grab the bottoms of my feet. Every day is different. If you want a rule; it takes three to six months of practice 45 minutes a day for the muscles to reach their flexibility. Two years for ligaments to reach their flexibility. After that, it's up to the bone, which is acceptance of flexibility.
Yoga isn't about being flexible. Really and truly it's about whatever you want to make it about. For me, it about moving my energy within my body and breathing deeper. It's your choice always.
I don't have a yoga body.
If you're Breathing then you have a yoga body. You can gain the same benefits (or very close) in child's pose as one can doing a headstand. You can also gain the same benefits just by sitting still and doing deep breathing (pranayama). So really yoga is for everyone and every type of body. There are variations and of course there are some poses that are challenging. The challenge is there for the yogi to expand their mind. But there's more than one path in yoga. More than one way to get into a pose, practice a pose or get out of a pose. Always listen to your heart and your body. Can you challenge yourself today? Or is it just enough of a challenge to hold the space and be on your mat? Either way works. It's your practice. You don't need to do what the instructor is doing. They are there to guide you and if they try to challenge you beyond your limits, be a peaceful warrior and say "I am good. Nameste"
I've never been to a class. I have no idea what I am doing.
Choose the right class and the right teacher. Those that don't like yoga, it's usually because of the teacher. And there's nothing wrong with that. Not every teacher is for everyone. Teachers all have their own styles as well as they are humans. You may have caught them on an off day or maybe their journey is not where your yoga journey is currently. Or maybe their style is not your style. That's ok. I know of people that don't like my classes. The class is too slow and they are looking for more movement and challenging poses. Then I've heard others say after a class, "that's my type of yoga". Each yoga class is merely an offering. When it comes to those that have never been to a yoga class or are new, choose a beginners class. This is going to move slower and have more modifications that are very helpful and more explanation. Plus, usually the class is shorter, which is helpful in the beginning.
I don't feel like going. Or I'm already in my jammies. Or I just want to watch my show on Netflix.
As I learned at yoga camp, that which we resist we need the most. You're going to feel oh so good after class. It's worth it. All you need to do in get in your car or open up the door to your home and begin. Let inertia take care of the rest. Netflix and jammies will be waiting for you at home. Trust me, there are days I would rather have my face in my animals, than make it to my mat but when I do, my world is better.
I can't afford it.
There are free websites galore. There's chair yoga, there water yoga, There's free yoga classes all over the place. Most studios if you plead your case will not turn you away. Call ahead and speak with the owner or manager. Usually, they can figure something out. Most yoga studios don't turn someone away for lack of payment. There are many options; self at home practice using free tools on the Internet, books from the library, tv shows or contacting a studio and coming to an arrangement. There's always a way to practice no matter your financial status.
Which brings me to today's Love Tip - Investing and spending time on your self care is always a good idea. The return on investment is priceless.

This post is all about the easy ways to help you with your health, getting things done and helping to bring more love into your life. First up, the rule of three for fitness. Then the rule of three for productivity. Then finally, the rule of three for three areas of anyone's love life; dating, coupled up and self-love. Bonus: Simple ways to bring more love into your life everyday for the month of March.
Yoga Offering this week at Dharma Yoga Nantucket, 530pm upstairs at the Hayloft at Bartlett's Farm, I will be guiding a Hatha yoga class with an emphasis on the Heart Chakra. When this energy point in the body is balanced, all things you love flow to and from you. Next week will be the Throat Chakra. When this energy point is balanced you are able to speak and write your truth.
1. For your Health
Want to lose weight? or Maybe you're looking to be more active? Whatever your goal, follow this rule and you'll easily see your health transform. Either walk or run three miles everyday or work out for 30 minutes. If you don't have time for either, do a combination of both. Get up and walk about three times through out the day for at least 10 minutes as well as do quick little workouts for five minutes three times through out the day. Easy enough to walk first thing in the morning, then at lunch time and then in the evening for 10 minutes each. Then when you need a break from work or while you're watching tv or brushing your teeth do some exercises; squats, lunges, chair dips etc.
2. For Productivity
Recently I came across an email where they said you can get 1000 items off your to do list by completing three items everyday. Somedays, it may be less and others it may be more. But strive to complete three items everyday off of your tasks. A few of my clients started this as well as a friend or two. They saw a change in their lives in just one week. They felt more productive and it wasn't daunting.
3. For Love
A. Dating - If you're in the dating world I have a very simple rule; don't sleep with someone until after three months. This may seem like a long time but if you're looking to be with someone for the long haul this can help weed out those that only want you for one thing as well as someone you may not like if you didn't sleep with them. It's so very easy to feel more connected to someone we've slept with but what if you didn't sleep with them? Would you have felt so connected to them? Would they have made it as far as they did? This gives both people the time to see if this is a relationship of substance. Now I understand if you can't wait or don't want to wait. Give yourself three weeks. And if you can't do that, I'll have some more dating rules to help you soon. Join the LoveLetter to stay up-to-date.
B. Coupled up - Do something or say something nice (from your heart) to your partner once a day for three weeks. Sounds simple enough and maybe you think you already do do this. Change it up. Add to it. You do not need to let your partner know you're doing this. In fact, it's best if you don't let them know. Just let the love flow and not be forced. Some days you may have to dig deep but there's always something that you can find that you love about your partner or something you can do for them that would make them feel good. Just observe and see how your partner treats you after all of this.
C. Self-Love - The best love of all! Take at least three minutes of everyday for self care; Rub your neck/shoulders or feet for one minute. Then meditate for one minute. (Sit up straight. Inhale through your nose for four counts. Hold the breath for four counts and then exhale slowly through the nose for six counts. Practice for one minute.) Then take a minute and write down all of the ways you love yourself or what you love about yourself. Write down your strengths and the good things you do. There's always something that you're lovable for.
Which brings me to today's love tip: Everyone is lovable and Love Able.
Here's a challenge for you for the month of March. Let this month be a month of Love. Bring more love into your life everyday. Here is a list of the days and an item to complete for that day. Do as you like with the prompt. For example: on day 26th the prompt is to fall in love at first glance. Maybe this is with a person or maybe it's with a flower or a sunset. Take a photo and follow others @DorothyDStover and use the hashtag #MoreLoveMarch. Looking forward to all the love shared!
Peace, Love & Hugs!
