I found this chair headed down south along Pacific Coast Highway . Could I have found a more perfect spot to sit? Jack Pot! No one was around , it was silent, sunny, and I could hear the waves crash. As I sat there, I wondered who last sat in this chair? What was on his mind? Did he see this exact view differently than I did since our perception of the world is different to all of us? As the sun was hitting my face, I was stoked that this chair was randomly here to sit down and relax on! I was given the chance to take in the gorgeous view and had some time with my own thoughts and breath. I hope many others that came across that chair , were able to get some time with themselves and their surroundings as well. The universe has funny ways offering inner peace, and the opportunities to admire its beauty. Looking back, I really didn’t have a choice that day. The world pretty much made my heart lighter, my mind clearer, and my soul happier, with waves crashing, the shining sun, and a chair in the middle of nowhere. |VitaminBridget
I want to hear from you guys!!! Have you ever came upon a random sitting spot where you could just let go and have a “you” moment? Comment or share below with me your favorite spots that you found or still escape to!!
It’s easy to find your soul caught up in this crazy thing we call life. We get so busy we turn into these modern robots. It’s like we get stuck doing the same thing over and over. Well stop and live a little. Let yourself have play time. No matter how old we get we need it. Here are 3 of my favorite tips that I truly live by and that you carry on well past your golden years!
Stay Playful. Go run through the sprinklers, or a giant water fountain. If you are walking to your car with someone, make it a race. Go to the kids section of the store and grab a kite to fly on a windy day. Or on a rainy day do a puzzle and bring out the board games. Games are a great way to keep your memory sharp too. Remember all those little things that were simply so fun.
Wonder & Explore. Go to your nearest book store and pick up a hiking book for your area. Once a week, flip through it, (with your eyes closed), and pick a page. You might just land on a path that will take you to a magical place you have never been to before or even knew was around you!
Laugh on a Daily Basis. Smile a lot! People love a great smile. Whether you are in a 5 star hotel or grocery store you have the opportunity to share your smile and make someones day. Make 3 people smile a day and notice how much better the world becomes.
Happy Earth Day Everyone!
Did anyone get to plant a tree, a flower, or recycle? I am so thankful everyday and especially today for how beautiful our Earth is. Share what you did to celebrate mother nature today!
I know I’ve said this before but I can not express enough just how good the ocean is for you! Here is why…
Did you know finishing your workout with a dip in the ocean can reduce inflammation in the body if the water is cold? Are you feeling tight and sore after your morning jog on the sand or beach workout sesh? Jump in!!! You will feel better instantly and your body will thank you.
Besides reducing aches and pains, the salt water can help clear breakouts or acne. It will dry it up faster than most over the counter acne medicines. Why not naturally exfoliate your body while you’re at it? After your workout, jump in the ocean, then run back to the sand and roll around in it so from your neck down until you are completely covered, then go jump back in and with the salt water rinse it off in a circular motion. Living at the beach we call this method “corn dogging”. I don’t know why, just is, and it works. Then there is your hair. People pay high dollar to buy salt water because of the texture it leaves in your hair. After your post-workout dip, wear a shower cap when you shower so you keep the salt water in, and rock beach waves all day long. So now you have reduced muscle inflammation, got a head start on clearing up that horrible blemish, got a full body exfoliation treatment, and awesome hair all for free! All natural! I say you can’t go wrong! Don’t forget to thank your “beach salon” and pick up a piece of trash if you see one.
Beach worthy and approved!
