It's a simple thing, coffee, but if you can enjoy the tiny little moments in your day, your whole outlook on life changes.
Instead of slamming down the free, lifeless coffee at your office, make it yourself. Take your time, actually measure your grounds (instead of just eye-balling it), and get it right. Put it into a thermos and drink it on the river, but only after you've made it to the perfect spot.
Look for a comfortable rock, in the sun, with a great view.
A cup of coffee is a tiny thing to think about, but what a way to start your day.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
