It’s a Saturday morning. You woke up pretty early for some reason, and you have absolutely no plans. You could do the usual and make a hearty breakfast, sit on twitter and watch Netflix all day… But why would you do that when you have something way more exciting right outside your door? I’m lucky to live in a town where some of the greatest adventures are basically in my backyard. Reno itself is beautiful, and next to Tahoe… I couldn’t have it better! But honestly, I’ve lived in so many beautiful places and its easy to take things for granted when you see them every day. Sleep can sound amazing, but do yourself a favor, and don’t live the same day twice.
1- Prepare for the day by eating a decent meal and drinking lots of water! Water is obviously an essential when exercising, but food is equally as important. You’ll need the energy to enjoy yourself and everything you’re doing. You could also start the day with a nice cup of Joe because honestly, who starts the day without coffee?
2- Get yourself out of your pajamas and go outside! Truckee and Tahoe are my favorite places to go on weekends because there is so much to do outdoors. Donner lake, Lake Tahoe and so many other surroundings make this my favorite weekend destination. But if you don’t live next to a lake, go for a random hike in the mountains, ride your bike around town, just do something to get yourself moving and breathing fresh air.
3- Friends are important to have while out on these adventures, not only for safety reasons, but it’s nice to live in the moment with people you love. Find some friends that are just as down for an adventure as you are and enjoy each others company.
4- Take as many cool pictures as possible! I looove being able to look at old pictures and relive the awesome adventures I’ve had. It’s a way to express yourself and the moments you were in.
5- Take a deep breath and appreciate where you are and what you’re doing. The absolute worst thing you could do while adventuring is worrying about what could happen, or trying to plan what comes next. Just go with the flow and enjoy yourself!
