It's easy to use your day from work as a day to take care of chores, tasks, to-dos or even a day to just Netflix yourself into oblivion ( and sometimes that's a splendid use of time)... But then you could also have an adventure...

I have this weird insatiable need to go new places, travel, explore, venture.  I get incredibly antsy and anxious when I can't make this happen. I used to get frustrated that on my time off I simply didn't have the means, financially, time-wise, etc to venture to these incredible far away places that I wanted to go.  And then I realized that sitting on the couch wishing and moping about wasn't doing me a lick of good and it was actually pretty darn lame.  So I started researching.. I spent whole evenings looking up little places within a days drive......and then I would promptly talk myself out of spending all my precious time driving and go back to watching Netflix Documentaries

And then one day I just said "To heck with it!" I picked a spot I'd never been, got in the car, and left.  And it was friggin glorious.  I turned the drive into a vital part of the trip, using it to  discover new artists on Spotify or listen to inspiring books.  I stopped to investigate quirky looking gas stations, and dive restaurants. I had random conversations with ladies at small garden centers and old farmers at the gas pump.  I discovered hidden rope swings over crystal clear rivers, ostrich farms in the middle of nowhere, the best fish tacos I've ever eaten, and amazingly friendly people. 

The best thing was that everytime I went out of my comfort zone and went somewhere new I came back glowing.  The next day I went to work excited, refreshed, and my yoga classes felt more authentic and energized, and all it took was a tank of gas and a little curiousity.
