This week, we were craving a little adventure and freshness. So while our current schedules and responsibilities don’t allow for us to pick up and take off on world travels for the week, we are going to take the opportunity to intentionally break from our usual routines and patterns, and explore our everyday life.
I’m sure we’re all aware of how easy it is to settle into a routine — taking the same route to work, picking up coffee from the same shop, making a variation of the same meal every single day. This isn’t a bad thing! Finding a routine helps us to focus on other, oftentimes more important, aspects of our lives. However, we think that it is just as important to break from these patterns occasionally to bring some intention and awareness into our daily tasks.
So for us, this means finding a new route to run in the morning (if we get lost, which is likely, that’s okay — all part of the adventure, right?), popping into an unknown cafe for lunch, and taking a day trip to a different part of the state this weekend. What does everyday exploration look like for you?
