Friday Favorites: What We're Reading- September 25

I left New York on Wednesday with an Upside of Downtime Forum high. The more than 300 who tuned in to the event walked away from their excuses and ready to plan their next day off. Didn't tune in? Check out the on demand playback to see what you missed or head over to Skift for the highlights.


Fall topped our reading list this week. Check it out...

The leaves are falling which means it's Oktoberfest. There's many ways to join the celebration of beer at a bar, in the street, after work, and in the sky? For the love of beer (and travel), Huffington Post highlights eight airlines around the world with the best in-flight beer offerings.

Speaking of October, plan ahead to get your spooky on. These exhibits will certainly leave goosebumps.

Monkey see monkey do. New research tells us that if American's continue to live workaholic lifestyles, our children will follow in our footsteps.

Bring your childhood memories full circle and show your family the great outdoors. Seriously, call the neighbors. Camping just got ten times cooler. 

Give your brain (and your coworkers) a break. Powering down email during time off gives you a chance to breathe and be fully present. Don't succumb to "telepressure."

Blink and you may miss out on apple harvest. From experience, there's more to bring home if you visit on a weekday.
