My husband and I are fortunate to live 10 minutes from the coastaline in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I took advantage of the proximity this week when I spent a few evenings walking the sandy beaches while watching our Boxer, Georgia, run, play and jump.
It's easy to let the stresses of life and work creep around us and overshadow the fun we should be having but don't let it steal your joy! I have found these three remedies put things into perspective and allow me to refresh during a busy week:
• A nature walk
• Good music
You know as well as I do the importance of exercise. It's regenerates our body and mind, increases blood flow and releases endorphins. Stop making excuses and get moving! You won't regret it and will feel better afterwards! I guarantee it!
Taking a nature walk allows you to soak in the beauty of being and see something new. No matter the amount of times you've walked the same circle or strip of beach, mountain hike or hilltop, it's a new day and will be something new to see.
Turn it up! Jam out to your favorite tunes. There's something about knowing and singing the words that lift our spirits. Music is medicine. No matter the genre, take a few minutes to be revived during your own mini concert.
# 4 for animal lovers: Spend time with your fur babies. It makes me happy to watch Georgia skip around and play at the beach. Especially during this time of year because it's the off season. This time next month, we will likely begin to see more visitors. Better soak it up now while we can!
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend :)
Note: The lettering on my photos were created with my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. It's amazing what you can do with those tools...endless possibilities! If you're new to the iPad Pro, Procreate and/or Apple Pencil, watch Teela Cunningham on Skillshare. Another great tutorial is by Juniper Calligraphy.
