    DO: get out and enjoy the colors of fall. Last weekend a friend took me on a three hour motorcycle ride through the countryside. We stopped a couple of times to check out a covered bridge or run through a field, but what filled me with the most joy were the endless views of fall. (…) Read more »

    DO: send somebody a handwritten letter. I know that sending somebody a handwritten letter might sound like a cliché DO, but it really is one of those special things in life. There’s nothing like receiving a letter in the mail that somebody took the time to write and send you. It’s such a heart-felt gesture. (…) Read more »

    DO: observe the stories around you. Everyone is someone, and everything has a story. I love stories. Stories fuel the imagination and fill the soul with emotion. We read books and watch movies, falling in love with the tales of other’s lives, but the real world never seems to have the same luster. Maybe, if (…) Read more »

    DO: Start a mood board Saturday DO DO: Start a mood board A couple of weeks ago I moved into a new apartment. Although I’m still not fully settled, it’s great to start fresh with a new space. My goal is to turn the place into an all inspiring place to be. I want to (…) Read more »

    DO: go to bed an hour early and read. I have two problems: 1) I never seem to get enough sleep, and 2) I never have enough time to read as much as I’d like. Rather than continue letting this bother me, I’ve begun a little experiment. An hour earlier than I typically would, I (…) Read more »

    DO: befriend somebody older than you. We look at people who are older than us. They seem so smart – so good at what they do. They have the world all figured out, and you think that you too should be on their level. As a younger sibling, I’ve gotten used to the idea there (…) Read more »

    DO:one thing at a time. I recently read, My Life as an Experiment, by A.J. Jacobs. Each chapter explores a new lifestyle experiment, and there was one in particular – “The Unitasker” – which made a significant impact on my thinking. In this chapter, Jacobs makes a commitment to do only one thing at a (…) Read more »

    DO: learn a new game Games are a great thing to have in one’s artillery. On my recent trip to Hong Kong I realized why. Firstly, getting there and back involves an extremely…long…voyage… After a while, you’ve finished the book you brought, you get sick of the movies and you’re left to your own devices. (…) Read more »

    DO: write something. I didn’t always want to be a writer. First it was an astronaut, then archeologist, and then about a hundred other things. But I started keeping a journal in middle school and I never stopped – I have boxes of them stored away, a somewhat haunting record of everything I’ve been through. (…) Read more »

    DO: Have a garage sale I’ve been moving out of my apartment of two years all throughout this past week. To say the least, the experience has been a little traumatic. I can’t help but feel bogged down by all of the stuff I’ve acquired. Never before have I wanted so badly to just throw (…) Read more »

    Saturday DO: breathe and smile. I used to always hate pigeon pose – the hip opening exercise which you are supposed to relax into for several minutes at the end of a yoga practice. It hurt me, and having to sit through it for so long just made it worse. I’m already horrible at sitting (…) Read more »

    DO: look at something that makes you smile. I started these Saturday DOs with the importance of laughter and self entertainment. But there are moments where you have nothing to put that smile on your face, and so you look to other places for that good laugh. I’ve realized how important it is sometimes to (…) Read more »
