I’ll be gone with some of my family until Halloween so in the meantime I have a challenge for you all.
It’s frightening how quickly we get into a routine, and how difficult we think it is to change. The reason I’ve been thinking about this is that the Dunkin Donuts with a drive-through is being remodeled and the usual clients have to go to the one without a drive-through just around the traffic circle. I’m sure this is changing how many people start their day because of the simple fact that they have no choice. I think if we weren’t all so stubborn or unwilling to change, that we’d find we can easily take more control of our choices and create new thoughtful routines. Now here comes the challenge.
Everyone has their own threshold for this, so choose to approach it as a challenge for one day, one day at a time, or the entire week. The challenge is to shop local for your morning or afternoon coffee/tea. If you usually go to Starbucks in the Fresh Pond area you have so many alternate choices. Most of the following places have coffee and tea: Iggy’s Bread, Formaggio Kitchen, Hi Rise, Sofra, Sarah’s Market and many more in your neighbourhood. Ask your friends and neighbours to find out where you can go or do a little google search the night before.
I’d love to hear back from you about your week of local coffees.
