Wind In My Hair And Sun At My Feet

IMG_5723

Hello,

I’ve spent the past (almost) week up at the coast and despite a rainy start, it has been absolutely fabulous. My days have been filled with strolls and swims on the beach, shopping, drinking ice tea, reading (Love, Rosie), watching TV whilst being able to look to my left and see the waves rolling in (etc).

I have had makeup free days and the sea salt has performed miracles for my skin and hair. I can say and I quote from my friend Ains “I’m just letting the sea do it’s thing.”

Despite the melting heat here in Oz on the coast; some days have been uncomfortably sweaty and humid, but I still do enjoy having the literal wind in my hair and sun at my feet.

I really think everyone needs to just get away and chill every once in a while. Now this is hard for me because I like going to places where everyday I am doing something new, I am not a big fan of just purely relaxing around so, typically I can’t stay at the coast longer then a week, but a week is a perfect amount of time from some R&R.

Whats your favourite ways to relax?

Relax, Rewind, Rethink (and Chill)

As I lay here and watch television shows that are truly full of nonsense, I finally find myself beginning to relax after one of the most stressful and draining terms of my life. It might sound unbelievably cheesy but, my favourite relaxation times occur at my Grandparents beach unit, late at night; watching rubbish television and just chilling whilst reading, drawing, texting etc.

As I said before, this term for me has been hard. With huge workloads paired with personal decisions I have had to make (future choices….); I am absolutely exhausted. Don’t get me wrong though, I love being busy. I am not one to sit and relax 24/7 , I have to be doing something. However, after working nonstop for just over 8 weeks, I think some “not doing anything evenings” are very necessary.

So, after my clear love for taking time out for a chill, I want to challenge you, yes you reading this right now. I challenge you to a chill night. Even if you are sadly not on holidays at the moment and your schedule is so busy that you want to curl up in a ball and cry, I challenge you. Now, I know how hard it is to leave your work when you have so much to do, but just a 10 minute chill out will give you time to collect your thoughts and continue. I am known to be an extreme “stresser” when it comes to heavy workloads, but leaving my work for 10 minutes gives my brain a break, and I always find with that, I come back to my work with a new mind set.

Tell me if you accept this challenge and I hope you enjoyed this post.

Love Jess xx

P.S.
Good luck if you currently have a huge/stressful workload. I believe in you :)!!
