I love the coast. If ever I feel stressed all I need to do is take a walk down to the beach and I’m instantly calmer. Just the sound of the waves and the vast views make me feel so warm inside, even when it’s freezing out like it is at the moment, it even snowed the other day!
But back to the beach, living in Bournemouth for the last 2 and a half years has provided me with plenty of much needed seaside time. If I ever need a little pick me up, the beach is exactly where I’ll go. It’s easy for life to get overwhelming sometimes, especially in our busy world and constant instant updates from social media but being surrounded by amazing nature really helps me to remember my place in the world.
I’m a worrier, there’s no denying it but I’m trying to get better. ‘The outcome of a situation will be the same whether you worry or not so save yourself the stress and don’t worry’ is a quote I try to remember daily, I think my Mum might have told me that one. Life is so much more enjoyable when you’re calm and happy and that’s exactly what I’m reminded of whenever I take a trip down to the sea.
Where’s you go to happy place? Let me know in the comments, I’d be interested to hear what other people do.
And remember, try not to worry unnecessarily!
