These past few days I've been trying to break my routine and doing more spontaneous things; I went running early in the morning, had an impromptu lunch with my mom at our favorite cafe, and I went to a yoga class in the beach with two of my friends. It was amazing to see the sunrise while doing yoga, and after we went swimming in the ocean. I was in serious physical pain for the next few days, but it was so worth it and can't wait to do it again.
Any plans for the weekend? I had a busy week, but I'm happy I could had breakfast with my best friend Paola and we caught up with our lives. I also had a 12oz macchiato that left me wired. I've been swimming a lot, which feels amazing in this hot weather. I went to the beach and actually swam in the ocean, which I swore I wouldn't do it anymore, but the water was so tempting. I said I only would dip my toes, but kept going and going.
I'm know to be a night owl, and waking up early is a struggle for me. But the past few days, I've been making an effort to wake up and see the sunrise, followed by a exercise session (some days bike riding, others running or swimming). I've noticed that my mood has improved, I feel happier during the day, and I sleep better. More importantly, I am more productive, since I have more hours during the day to work on stuff. Win-win!
I managed to wake up early today and see the sunrise. It was amazing! Why don't we do it everyday? What a spectacle Mother Nature puts for us, and I usually miss it. Anyway, any plans for the weekend? I'm hoping I can wake up early again tomorrow and see another sunrise. I foresee multiple cups of coffee in my near future!
Have fun this weekend. xoxo, m. Image: Monica Aguinaga
Sometimes, you just need to take a break from everything; whether is taking a day off from work and spending the day at the beach, or taking a moment to sip lavender tea, or just walk over to the pier to watch a sunset, every day I remind myself that even the little things can bring happiness and peace of mind.
On a different topic, I have a feeling this week is going to be epic! This week, I'm hoping to cook more and eat out less, go on more (and longer) bike rides and have a lunch date with my mom.
