5 Ways to Break the Routine and Make the Moments Happen

Today’s post – 5 Ways to Break the Routine, is sponsored by NESCAFÉ® ClásicoTM, but my love for their Make the Moments Happen movement is all my own!

Minutes turn into hours, turn into days, turn into years and before we know it life is moving along so fast we forgot to make the moments happen that matter most. In the everyday grind and hustle and bustle of life we tend to forget to slow down, break the routine and do something new and different. So I’m inviting you to join me in taking a break from your usual to make the moments happen with NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ through these 5 ways to break the routine – you never know what could happen!

It's time to break the routine and make the moments happen. No more waiting for them to happen or the right time! It's your time to shine and have fun.

You might recall the partnership between NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ and Ricky Martin in the past. Because of their continued shared values of passion in life, family togetherness, and joyful Latin-American origins, NESCAFÉ® extended this partnership in 2016. Check out this fun video starring Ricky Martin – NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ rewarded those who dared to break the routine by giving them the surprise of their life: meeting Ricky Martin!

NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ surprised people at random bus stops with a chance to break the routine. Since NESCAFÉ® believes that when you dare to take advantage of opportunities, big things happen, they wanted to give those that hopped on the bus a huge surprise! Sometimes you just need to leave your comfort zone to truly enjoy life. The pure joy in the faces of these random people who participated in the social experiment with NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ is unmatched.

5 Ways to Break the Routine!

– Invite your girlfriends over for an impromptu movie night on a week night

– Surprise a friend at her house with a gift basket which includes mugs and a jar of NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™

– Have dinner in the backyard with the family tonight followed by a Sobremesa

– Walk or bike to the store instead of driving and enjoy the fresh air

– Sweeten your coffee with some chocolate ice cream for a NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ Mocha AFFOGATO aka Coffee Float

It's time to break the routine and make the moments happen. No more waiting for them to happen or the right time! It's your time to shine and have fun.

I took a break from routine this morning by adding some chocolate ice cream to my coffee and skipping on the cream and sugar. Served with a some madeleine cookies and you couldn’t wipe the smile off my face all morning if you tried.

Step 1: Prepare NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™ by adding two teaspoons of NESCAFÉ Clásico to 12oz of hot water

Step 2: For a Mocha Affogato add one scoop (or several – it’s your moment) of chocolate Häagen Dazs ice cream

Step 3: For more subtle chocolate flavor, use vanilla ice cream and one tablespoon of cocoa powder

It’s time to stop waiting for moments to happen, and start creating them! The right time is now, the perfect opportunity is the one you create, don’t wait for next time – the is it. No need to wait for birthdays for the next get together, make it happen. My girlfriends and I love to get together as often as possible – whether at someones house, the mall or for lunch on a random day. It’s these moments that make our friendship stronger, our hearts beat faster and our smiles grow wider.

How will you break the routine to make the moments happen in  your life?  Grab a friend and go dancing in the rain, then warm up inside with a NESCAFÉ® Clásico ™.

      The recipe is delish! I didn’t personally get to meet Ricky, that would be awesome. It was random people on the street that were offered this opportunity, simply for daring to break the routine!

  • I agree we need to stop and smell the roses so to speak. I am 53 now and it amazes me how fast time went by. I have wasted the last 14 years of my life working 6 days a week at the computer shop we owned. We just sold it and now I feel lost. Thanks for reminding me there are other important things in life beyond work. Nescafe sounds delicious. I also like the thought of adding ice cream to coffee instead of cream.

  • It is so true everything you said in this post. It is so important to not just sit around
    and expect something to happen. Fate is a rare thing. Things happen because of the chances
    we take every day.
