Columbus Ohio is not always sunny in the winter (there's an understatement.) I was glad to see sunshine on Monday morning before the rain came. I should have run out and grabbed some pictures but I did not. I need a sunnier photo of Worthington for my Facebook profile.
Winter in Columbus Ohio is "Kinda" Blue
I have a new "Fresh Facts" from First Watch in my mailbox from their Sun eClub this morning. This month (maybe the Sun eClub newsletter comes out more or less often?) is about "Beat the Winter Blues in 5 Easy Steps."
Lack of sun can make people sad. Lack of sun can make people eat comfort food to feel better according to the First Watch newsletter. The newsletter is written for all of the chains locations? I believe the restaurant chain started in Florida but it is as if this e-newsletter is speaking to central Ohio.
First Watch's "Beat the Winter Blues in 5 Easy Steps" are
- Get enough sleep - they recommend 7 to 9 hours of sleep and 30 hours of heart pumping exercise
- Eat lighter fare
- Eat whole grains
- Eat more fruits and vegtables
- Don't be a hermit "
Throughout the newsletter selections for lighter fare, whole grains, fruits and vegtables on the First Watch menu are highlighted. I am sure you can read the newsletter online (link above to their website.) There is a lot more detail about what each of the 5 steps means too.
Columbus Ohio - First Watch locations
I have not been to the Worthington Mall First Watch location as much...I believe it was the first, First Watch in central Ohio a long time ago. I remember long waits on Sunday mornings even when the mall was headed downhill. I guess we've gone there a couple of times in the last year on a Sunday, early and it was not a long wait. Now with the mall being revitalized.... and is now called 'The Shops at Worthington Place.' Weekday should be OK at First Watch in Worthington even though the mall is getting more and more tenants. The First Watch at The Shops at Worthington place is on the east side of the mall, you can use the east entrance. In nice weather there is outside dining. That is only going to get nicer as the mall is remodeled inside and out.
We sometimes go to the Polaris area First Watch location at the Polaris Neighborhood Center (east of I 71) 2103 Polaris Parkway, Columbus, Ohio 43240. There is usually a wait but not as long as what I remember at the Worthington First Watch.
First Watch restaurants are every where in central Ohio. The Hilliard First Watch is at Mill Run Plaza. There are First Watch locations in Upper Arlington, Dublin, German Village, New Albany and now a Reynoldsburg / Pickerington location. The First Watch website (link above) has address on where each location is.
Columbus Ohio is in central Ohio.
