I’ve been thinking how restorative this past weekend’s “do nothing” was for me. While I cannot do it all the time, it seems like a good idea to give myself permission to take time out once in awhile more often. Once a week would be fabulous, but I’m not sure how well that will work in my life.
Via Rachel’s One Pretty Thing blog, I found the amazing Baca Creative blog. I read every single post and, amongst a number of great ideas, came across her offering for making Enjoy the Day coupons.
This morning I’m tucking some of the coupons I’ve printed into my agenda as reminders. Today is free of any obligations to others, so I’m using one of the coupons right away.
A perfect accompaniment to the Enjoy Your Day concept is Sonic’s offer to give away free root beer floats tonight between 8 and midnight. I’m thinking a cruise through Sonic’s drive-through to pick up the root beer float and a quick drive to the nearest park to star watch is a lovely and relaxing way to celebrate summer.
