In this section, I’m posting additional resources that don’t fit neatly into the categories above. If a resource refers to New York and you live outside of New York, think about a similar resource in your home town. If you have a suggestion, please let me know, so I can post it for others to share.
- Go out for tea! The book New York’s 50 Best Places to Take Tea by B. Niles lists a lot of different options for teatime in Manhattan. If you live in a different city, find a list of these places in your home town, ask a friend to join you, and go!
- Get tickets. New York is full of theater, dance, art, and music. It’s nice to have things to look forward to.
- Go to a movie, concert, art show, open rehearsal, or lecture in the middle of the day.
- Take a nap when you feel like it.
- Browse in a bookstore.
- Read parts of the newspaper that you always wanted to read but didn’t have time.
- Listen to a new composer, a new musician, or a kind of music you haven’t heard before.
- Get fresh air, light, and sun. Watch a sunrise. Find a garden or a park.
- Walk on a beach at low tide and high tide and notice the difference. (New Yorkers: consider leaving town for this one.)
- Look at the moon. What shape is it tonight?
