There’s something simple, direct and deliciously practical about gathering all these varied approaches to the activities and practices we know enrich our lives and putting them on your calendar like you would schedule an oil change.
First up for me: outdoor exercise every Sunday morning.
On Sundays, I usually do a workout class, which I also enjoy, but I’ve realized that because I go to that same workout studio during my work week, it bums me out to show up there on the weekend, too.
I want to move my body in a way that feels different. So now, I’m scheduling my own happiness date to exercise outdoors on Sundays.
