Reformation Pilates, 75003 Paris

I’m usually taking my day-offs on Thursdays and Fridays and having weekend in the middle of the week has been truly life-changing. I’m able to get so many things done and rest on the same time. Not working when everyone else does keeps me away from all the distractions and forces me to focus on myself. Plus weekends in Paris are mostly just stressful as there are way too many people everywhere. Not even mentioning my pilates studio, where the classes are fully booked on weekends already many weeks in advance.

As I mentioned few times earlier, past winter I’ve been paying extra much attention to my daily routines to fight the winter tiredness, and as it happens I developed a bullet proof weekend routine that keeps my energy levels high throughout the weeks. When I was younger, I used to party a lot, but nowadays late nights and one too many glasses of wine puts me so out of focus for way too many days that now I prefer to start my weekends with pampering myself with a face mask, turmeric tea and sleeping early. The first “day-off” I usually dedicate for working from home and finishing up my to-do list for the week ( and preparing a new one for the next week, I’m a sucker for lists..). The second day I’m trying to stay out as much as possible, going to reformer pilates, meeting friends for a matcha latte and going to exhibitions. So simple yet so efficient.

My November thought are now on Flounce.fi and I really wanted to highlight this article in an archive issue of Harper’s Bazaar, especially the pictures. The left one is currently my phone’s screen saver at it really sets the mood right when I see it in the mornings. As I know from experience, winter coldness and darkness tend to affect my motivation, so this year I’m preparing early by focusing a lot on my morning routine; stretching, lemon water and planning the day.

I had a very interesting discussion with a friend of mine about routines , which gave a theme for my september moodboard. I’ve always enjoyed developing new routines to increase productivity in the everyday life. However, as we become blind for our habits, this month I want to dedicate for re-thinking all of them, whether I’m still in control of them or if they are leading my day. As much as I enjoy my morning coffee, I don’t want my day to be ruined without it.

Autumn always has this great energy for thinking things outside of the box. I’ll try to make the most of it with by trying new recipes, planning outfits from my existing wardrobe, absorbing ideas and giving second chances. It’s all about keeping mind open for possible new favourite things, that may end up being part of your routines.
