Changing Seasons, Changing Paces

20131028-084950.jpg

Fall has come to a rapid ending yesterday with the first winter storm of the season in Calgary. Luckily, I haven’t had to work since the snow has fallen and have essentially been hiding inside from the frigid -5C (23F). I know there is much worse to come, but for now I’m going to pretend that this is as bad as it is going to get.

This morning has been incredibly relaxing. I couldn’t sleep so I ended up on the couch at 6:00am. I watched the world around me slowly wake up as I sat on the couch sipping my coffee. It has been incredibly peaceful as the television still hasn’t been turned on.

I have been so busy lately that I haven’t has a moment to just stop and relax. This morning has been like a gift to just sit, reflect, and enjoy the wonders of our existence.

Do you have a special routine or activity you like to do to take a break from the business of our lives?

  1. How wonderfully poetic! Mine is similar to you. I love looking out the window with a hot tea and just watching the world go by.

  2. Breathing. It’s relaxing. I can do it anywhere. And it’s free.
