Eavesdrop. Pick up a new piece of slang and use it in conversation at some point during the day.
“Sometimes after a dense week, which characterizes most weeks, I try to appreciate the weekend as a welcome void. There is an impulse to fill that void, to schedule it full with fun, activities, social things, or things to accomplish. But as much as I can, I like to remember the essence of what taking a break is all about, that it’s up to me to make a time to not be determined to do things and get them done. There is an idea I had pinned to the fridge, regarding making the time in your life to make art, and not using being busy as an excuse, which inspired me, which said we have as much time in the day as the great masters ever did. Time is precious and we should never try to kill it, rather we should appreciate the luxury of having time to spare.” (Gregor Ehrlich)
Need a new vantage point? This week we are zip lining in LA. Catalina Island to be specific. Take in the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and the island’s terrain while hurtling through the air at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. You’ll be careening as much as 300 feet above the canyon floor from the top of Descanso Canyon to just above the shores of charming Descanso Beach. Don’t worry – you’ve got two guides per group to ensure safety. Let the exhilaration begin. For details, click here.
