It’s been a month now living in the West Coast. In all honesty, I’ve had hard time adjusting. Not because the nature here is so beautiful, people extremely friendly, drivers polite, there’s fresh local produce available year round and so many new exciting places to explore. It’s because I’m no longer working 5 days a week nor have that same old routine I once despised.
Having this much freedom with my time has had the opposite effect than I expected. When I was working at the hotel I would’ve loved to take a month off and just relax, be on staycation so I can organize the house, clean, concentrate on health coaching, spending time with friends and family, and just be. Now that I have that time I’m not feeling good about it. Anyways, adjusting continues. I’m sure I’ll snap out of it soon. I’ve created a morning routine which helps, now just have to routinize the rest of the day. 🙂
Few of my favorite things I’ve discovered this month:
1. Food. We live in an Asian part of the town (51% Asian) and there’s like a million Asian restaurants. So far I’ve had Korean (of course), Thai, Filipino and Burmese food. Although we haven’t eaten out that much, usually cooking 6 days a week at home. Which brings me to my next point…
2. Farmers Markets. There’s a farmers market in our town (15 min walk from our house) every Thursday and Saturday. What made me extra happy was to notice how many organic farms are included. Happy, happy, happy!
3. Ocean. It takes me about 30 mins to walk to the beaches. Nuff said.
