It’s the middle of the day and you need some inspiration while you are sipping that second Latte. Here are a few links to peruse for your (and my) own amusement…
If you’re feeling adventurous, take a look at this Buzzfeed article about these different and trendy coffee shops around the world to visit. I plan on visiting Workshop Coffee next time I’m in London. This article combines my love for coffee as well as travel.
2. Looking for some relaxation…
Yoga has been something I’ve really enjoyed over the last few years. It started during college and then lasted to now. However, now that I live in the UK, don’t have a car, nor many options for yoga studios in Hull, I find myself not practicing. This is something I really want to change, especially since the weather will be growing colder and colder and I’ll trade outdoor exercise for the indoors. This post from Lovelifesurf.com provides some good suggestions on how to get a home yoga practice started.
3. Embracing autumn…
One of the great things about living in England (versus my dry Colorado) is that there are lots of trees. Consequently, Fall is really beautiful here. While the leaves are still colorful, I want to use them to make some seasonal decor for my house. This garland is so simple, yet colorful.
4. Planning my next adventure…
For my birthday, my mother is coming to visit me. I am going to take her to Edinburgh, Scotland, so I’ve been doing a bit of reading of places I could take my mother to. This is the first time she will be in Europe in over 24 years. I want her to see the Castle, get some Scottish food, and maybe we can enjoy a pint or two. I found this great list on the BudgetTraveller.org for cheap things to do.
5. Seeking motivation to run in the morning…
Since the daylight hours are diminishing, by the time I finish work, it is already dark. My routine runs in East Park have now ended. My only alternative to doing all my exercise in the gym is to wake up earlier and run outside prior to work. The only issue is that I can’t seem to get out of bed. I’m trying to motivate myself to wake up earlier. This article from Runnersworld.com has a few tips that I’m going to try on myself. Let’s see if it works!
