#mentalhealthmonday post:

There isn’t enough room in that big brain of yours for grouching AND gratitude. (dare you to give it a shot, it’s true.)

So if you’re grouching, why not stop and look for something you’re grateful for?

Found this tree in the sculpture garden in DC while there with #metagather2022 last week. Grateful to see that humans still all want the same thing: Love and Light.

What are you grateful for?

You know The Grind is more than coffee. With every decision we make we are conscious of the impact it will make on things bigger than us all.

We thought we would share something good for your mental health, the environment, and all the little species your Consciously Crafted Grind food depends on:

Why not stop doing so much yard work?

Instead, why not sip a latte this weekend, go for a hike, and save the planet and your wallet by ignoring it with purpose and passion?

Food for thought. Be brave, save the planet, and take a break.

See you Thursday-Sunday ❤️

Long overdue #mentalhealthmonday post:

Along with this reminder to #breathe, swipe to see some of our favorite local people who can help you take time to do just that.

Take a second to close your eyes, put down your phone, and breeeeeeathe deeply.

PS: @mtveale with PeaceofMaria treated Mel to Bowenwork for concussion therapy
https://www.peaceofmaria.com/ and whoa. She’s back. ❤️🙏😘

@sage_lotus_healing is our neighbor here in this downtown community, grab a latte and walk right down to your appointment. 🪷🧘

All the Love and Light.

C.T. (noun)(emotional state of being): the brief and secret staff time just before the door opens, when the lights are still off, and, often rushing to finish each other’s projects, when the workload is temporarily and unanimously paused, and when personal coffees are prepared. Coffee Time. Leave no (wo)man behind. Cheers, Lights on, Let’s do this!

Excited to share that The Grind will be attending Meta Boost Gather 2022, a small business leadership gathering, as a member of #Meta (Facebook/Instagram’s) Small Business leadership network, called #Boost. Mel will be in DC with the Meta Boost Leaders from Monday through Wednesday as their guest! AND Meta featured us, you, The Grind Community, #destinationderrynh , as a STORY!

And here it is!

This network of leaders got each other through the pandemic.

Without you all, as was said in the interview, and this Boost community, we wouldn’t have survived. ❤️ Forever grateful.

Can’t wait to meet the Boost leaders and thank them in person.

Kinda cool, very excited, totally looking forward to it, and certainly won’t take it for granted. Cool stuff.

Thanks, @meta

We are excited to share with you some big changes.

It’s taken us months, maybe years, of planning and market research to come to this conclusion so we know you’ll trust our direction, even if it at first seems confusing.

The market has changed, and so are we. These are things we know:

We know there’s SO MANY OF YOU on the weekends and SO MANY OF YOU Thursdays and Fridays! Like, pre pandemic record busting numbers of you! You’ve been in on the weekends, so you’ve seen it, and so thank you for your patience :)

We know we need to take good care of you. The best care of you. NH’s Best Coffee Shop care of you. We know we need to expand our menu and cater to you when you’re here. We need to be ready for all of you and we look forward to seeing all your faces as you gather together with friends and family. We know we need to give you the BEST of us, and the MOST of us.

We know we will be open Thursdays through Sundays effective immediately, and will be closed Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Partly to prep, and partly to recoup.

YOU know we got this. You know we consider this an expansion when it matters most. You know this is a consciously crafted decision, and you know we have your back when you need us at the end of your long week. ❤️

See you Thursday!

Can’t wait!  See you here!

The cafe has proven not be a healthy environment to recover from a concussion, and because of this, and an incomplete weekday staff, we need to close until the weekend staff arrives on Saturday. Don’t panic! It’s ok. Mel’s just gotta have total brain rest and recover once and for all. Thank you for understanding, we knew you would. Smile. It’s just self care.

Love and light,
Mel and Glenn

We closed early and suddenly yesterday due to an injury sustained while (surprisingly) participating in xtreme full contact coffee shop enjoyment. (Mel got excited about a beautiful baby and hit the ground (and a trash can and a few other things) running. Laughter now encouraged.

Today we are OPEN, but for our drink menu only, since it created a trickle down staffing issue for today.

In an effort to find the shareable learning lesson in between the frustration, head injury, and laughter,swipe to a pic of concussion awareness and protocol. Stay safe out there everyone. 🤪

Over the weekend we ran a stealth fundraising campaign prompted our dear friend Cheryl from @nomadbakery . She crafted this beautiful bialy, and then donated them to us, so we could raise money together for Ukrainian refugees fleeing into Poland. So far, with your help and full bellies we raised $226. If you’d like to help, we have more tomorrow till they’re gone. They’re $5 each to enjoy, more if you’d like to add a tip, and every last dollar, thanks to Cheryl’s generosity, will be sent to:

https://www.pah.org.pl/en/donate/

We have the coolest community.
