Sometimes I have to remind myself, I’m doing too much of …. work, work, work! And I feel like this…
And not enough of this ….
And after the winter most of us have had… (Okay …I live in “Sunny Florida” – but don’t laugh! Even we, in Northeast Florida, had weeks of “dreary, gloomy, cold days!) Now spring is here, and summer is just around the corner (my favorite seasons). But I often have to remind myself to just take a break and sit and enjoy the beautiful weather.
I am blessed to be by the ocean, but I don’t get to the beach nearly enough. I didn’t get to the beach all winter and just last week went to the ocean for a few hours. As you can see, it was amazing…
If you don’t live on a coast, maybe you could take a walk through the woods… and stroll along a lakeshore, river, brook or stream. I love that too! There is just something about being close to water that refreshes my soul.
Or even just taking a walk through a peaceful forest.
Smell the fresh air, take a walk, recharge, capture the simple little things in life … these moments help us survive the “day in, day out drudgery” of our lives. Get a change of scenery – it will probably do you a world of good!
And you can always….. swim in a pool. Sometimes I just “float” in a “floatie” all Sunday afternoon. (Of course, don’t forget your sunscreen!)
Take a break from chasing your kids, cleaning the house, working overtime, and doing chores! Sure, these things need to be done, but all that stuff will be there when you get back. Make sure you take care of you too! Stop and smell the fresh salty air! You will be glad you did! See you at the beach!
