Ladies, the weather is getting warmer and the sun is out to play, so that can only mean one thing….beach season(and or rosé season--you decide). Now for the lucky girls living in tropical paradise 24/7 bare with me while I discuss the hardships of living in a city.
I think being a Pisces has a lot to do with my longing to be near the water. I am truly a beachy girl at heart. Thankfully my job has kept me in touch with...my beachy side. See what I did there? New Yorkers are constantly drowning in their own thoughts while trying to keep up with the fast-paced city lifestyle. It’s beyond exhausting sometimes. I love this city but every once in awhile you need to take a break. And I don’t mean a ‘go and sit in Central Park or go to the MET kind of break’, I mean a get out the city and breathe different air kind of break. I’m not a doctor but I can say with certainty that it’s essential for urbanites to prescribe themselves some R&R and vitamin sea. I know some of you city girls may have winced at that last statement. There is ZERO shame in needing a work-free, stress-free weekend. You go to the gym to keep your body healthy but what about your mind? Give it some TLC! A healthy mindset is just as important as a healthy body.
As soon as I start smelling saltwater I can feel all the stress leaving my body and my mind is suddenly at ease. The sand absorbs all of your negative energy. Sandy toes=good energy. It’s almost that same feeling you get after taking off a heavy coat when the weather gets nicer. You feel lighter. This is when inspiration hits and I can be my most creative self. My best ideas or problem solving happen when my head isn’t filled with taxi’s honking, rent bills, and deadlines.
There’s a reason people listen to “ocean sounds” to fall asleep at night! The sound of water crashing against the sand is some kind of beautiful. Added bonus if your hair is salty and your skin is freshly kissed by the sun! Are you still with me? Now that you’ve finished reading my love letter to my favorite gift from mother nature I will leave you with a final piece of advice. I told you that sandy toes=good energy what’s even better, however, is sandy toes+barefoot sandals=good energy with style.
Stay Beachy xo
