A Little Winter Holiday Break + A Reading List

, , , , By Catherine Lazure | Nordic Design

This Holiday season for me will be all about enjoying some free time and, mostly, slowing down. I’ll do my best to be as mindful as possible, to be in the ‘now’, to take in all the joyful moments – And I hope you will too. 

I am looking forward to spending several lazy mornings doing nothin’, or finally taking the time to binge watch a good Netflix series, bake cookies, ski with my three-year-old, check out that box of childhood memories and make some new ones with my family. 

So I will put down my phone and unplug the laptop, and swap my usual business-related books for some novels, clean the clutter on my desk, and hopefully forget which day of the week it is (a telltale sign that I’m really on vacation).

Stepping away from it all is also a way to be able to come back in full force, batteries recharged and head cleared, to kick-start the new year with SO many exciting projects.

Nordic Design will resume its activities in January 2020, ready to tackle our biggest goals yet.

In the meantime, I am not leaving you empty-handed! I’ve selected some of my favorite articles from the archive that you might have missed or that are totally worth revisiting – Below.
