My favourite way to relax and de-stress is to lay on the beach, listening to the soft sound of the waves, feeling the sand adapt gradually to my body, and soaking in the sun.
I grew up by both the mountains and the ocean, so I feel very grateful to have enjoyed the best of both worlds for a long time – but since moving to London I’ve noticed I long for these places more and more. The beach is a place that is still very close to my heart and that I run to whenever I’m getting too overwhelmed and nothing else is working to relax me.
It’s like I’m finally able to think clearly again, finally able to take control of my life and not feel like the world is against me.
Sometimes, I wonder how people feel living in places such as Hawaii, having a relaxed lifestyle by the beach. Is it as amazing as it sounds, or does it get old?
