This morning cup of coffee is Ginhawa Craft Studio Cafe in UP Los Banos 🙂
2. Pilates. If you told me a year ago that I’d list exercise as a way of destressing from work, I’d have laughed in your face and called you crazy. These days though, Pilates (and yoga! but mostly Pilates) is my go-to activity when I need to recenter myself and stop worrying about work. There’s something about the combination of quiet and hard work (I sweat buckets in that one-hour class) that makes me forget my troubles. Less stress + a stronger body = a double win for me.
And last but not least…
3. Get organized. I make good use of the paper monthly calendar on my desk and home office, my paper planner, Post-Its, plus my standard suite of apps: Evernote, Google Drive, Docs, and Calendar, and Dropbox. While some people prefer to keep everything online, I find that having a paper copy of my schedule and tasklists makes them more concrete somehow. That and I take great joy in making to-do lists and crossing stuff out.
