The autumn came with a bang and a crash. For a few days here in Bulgaria it is so cold and it rains from morning till night. I know it sounds pretty uncomfortable, but this time is wonderful. The perfect excuse for the more lazy people to sleep yet more, for as long as it is so pleasant … and the perfect moment for all of you who have loads of things to do. Just like me.
And you? What are you doing? Do you have a plan to make use of this rainy weather and, though the dark sky outside, create light and warmth within yourself?
For all of you who are wondering what to do, please choose something from my suggestions.
If you follow my blog, you know that I decided to test and challenge myself, namely to read 13 books. You can read about my challenge here. In the past few months, I’ve got a lot of books that I want to read, but I still found an apology to not to or I find a brand new book I read right away. So if you have a book you want to read for a long time, but you still do not find that time, I think the moment has come. Please share in a comment below which books you will read so I can add new ones for my ‘to-read’ list.
If you do not fall on reading books but love to watch movies and series, then here we go. In addition to reading, I like to watch interesting, burly series. Every morning I start my day with two episodes ‘CSI:Miami’ – maybe one of my favorite series. And as you already know, I’m falling into the criminal series where there’s an investigation, psychological analysis, action, thrill, but the scene is not too gloomy. That’s why I loves the Miami crime scene, but not the ‘CSI’ or ‘CSI:New York’. I also watch ‘CSI: Cyber Attacks’. I love people who understand computers, the internet, that they know how to hack things, it’s so exciting, and in crime investigations it’s very important. Other series I recommend: Monk, Bones, Castle, Elementary Watson, White Collar, Quantico. I think I will soon write a post about this topic because I generally do not watch serials, I do not follow seasons, and I am pretty ignorant in general. My bad.
Exercise. Do some yoga. Meditate. Just do something for yourself and body. My workout post here.
Make a journal and write down your thoughts, beliefs, say thank you, write your plan to action cuz I know you want to change something, you want to build something, you want to live the life of your dreams.
Prepare something. There is no better moment than a rainy afternoon spent in the kitchen. Unlock the chef in you, roll your sleeves, put the apron and let’s start. There is a special suggestion for those of you who want to eat something healthy, light and tasty, but do not want to spend much time in the kitchen. Avo-Toast on Andrea’s recipe, check it out here.
Take a stroll, enjoy the raindrops. Honestly, it works pretty purifying and toning. Forget about your umbrella and go out. Look around for the beauty that surrounds you. Take pictures. Enjoy the time. Relax, you will not get sick. And when you get home it’s time to …
Fill your bath, put your aromatic salts and candles and enjoy a wonderful time in the bathroom. If you have decided that you are not resting so much because there is much work to do, I think this is the best time to rearrange the wardrobe. It is time to wave the summer clothes a goodbye and to welcome the warm socks & the big sweaters. It is definitely time for an autumn cleaning if you understand me.
And if you are not at home at all, you can go out to a café with friends, go watch movies or go shopping. I really want to post a post with the things I want to buy in time, my WISHLIST – yeees! I think it will be quite interesting.
Or to spend some proper time with a loved one or your family. Organize a short trip to somewhere and enjoy the time together. Because such moments are yet to come.
I do not know if you’ve noticed, but when it gets colder outside, people get warmer and dearest and are increasingly looking for attention, support and warmth from their loved ones and friends. Autumn and Winter are some of the most magical seasons.
