(Haven't read about this yet? Go here to read why my blog is called Like a Day Off and here to read about the Little Ways series.)
But a GOOD cup of coffee, one to make that moment feel like a day off, requires a couple of things, in my book:
GOOD cup of coffee is exactly what you need to feel warmer or cooler, as the case may be.
2. It needs to be enjoyed. A cup of coffee while getting for work is okay, and a cup while teaching is still lovely, but a GOOD cup of coffee needs to be savored. To be enjoyed while reading a book or having conversation with a friend or even, sometimes, just sitting and simply being.
A GOOD cup of coffee can make any moment feel like a day off. Too often we rush through our morning coffee or drink it while working, not even savoring the deliciousness it provides. This morning I had the chance to sit with my sister for about 15 minutes at Starbucks and chat and really enjoy a cup of coffee, even though it was short. And truthfully, it was wonderful.
What is your favorite coffee or beverage ritual? How do you use it to create a moment of space in your day?
