TRUTH: Doing any indoor activities outdoors immediately elevates the entire experience.
Ex: yoga, running, wine-tasting, reading…
I remember one day in college my English professor stood up in the middle of class and said without warning, “Let’s have class outdoors today!”
All of us undergrads grabbed our paperback books and notebooks and sat under oak trees discussing Shakespeare’s sonnets.
It was the best class ever.
I’m sitting outside as I write this and it occurred to me that I should probably do this more.
“This” being take advantage of working outdoors if and when I want to.
Early on in solo entrepreneurship, I was absolutely guilt of idealizing the “be your own boss” life.
Working for myself, I assumed it was going to be a spontaneous flow of lunch dates, walks with Harper, and skipping out of the studio early for the early yoga class.
Turns out it’s more of an 80 hours workweek model, and my lunch date tally is still in the single digits.
But then there are moments, working on the deck cradling my laptop between crossed legs, that I feel free-er than I ever have.
Especially with this Kidney Bean Arugula Salad to my left!
