If you’re looking for a sign that you need to slow down and reconnect, this is it. After traveling around Bali for the past 14 days, the biggest thing I’ve noticed is how relaxed and happy everyone is here. I never felt rushed by anyone to do anything – whether it be paying for a delicious meal, taking in a scenic view, or stopping to ask a stranger for directions. Everyone has time or makes time.

I am at the edge of my seat waiting for that first sign of a 70 degree and sunny forecast, so I can spend all day outside. You feel me? This time of year is when all of the excitement for summer starts to build, and people tend to get reeeally motivated to kick their workouts into high gear. Me, included.

This particular location (one of four!) is conveniently located above Whole Foods in Gowanus. I was definitely in plant lady heaven, and couldn’t stop smiling even if I tried. If you don’t already know, Gotham Greens is the urban farming pioneer growing and harvesting hyper-local, pesticide-free greens on rooftops. Every vegetable and herb is sustainably grown using 100% clean and renewable energy.
