Observations: YHC started the workout alone, but was joined by Running Man at the seventh round. It was great to have someone to share the Holiday with!

CoT:
Shared some thoughts from The Practicing Stoic, a book by Roman philosophers:
“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” -Epictetus
“True freedom is obtained not by satisfying desires but by removing them.” -Seneca
So, instead of getting material possessions or seeking worldly pleasures, focus more on that which will bring real meaning in the long run this Holiday Season.
