Life is filled with so much activity and excitement, which can be great, but sometimes it's nice to take a moment to stop, relax and let go of all the stress and fatigue that can build up.
THE PACIFIC OCEAN
Take a moment to enjoy a visit to the beach.
In the future, we'll change this video and visit other relaxing locations.
Oh the places we will go!
Where do you go to relax mentally and physically?
For some people, it's as simple as time in the shower or bathtub!
If you'd like, you can share with us a similar moment.
Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lay down. Enjoy the stillness of removing yourself from the fast pace of life. Can you transport yourself to the beach? Imagine the cool sand between your toes, salt smell in the breeze, the sound of the waves crashing and seagull's call. Maybe you haven't been to a beach but you've been to a lake or a river. Or think of your favorite place or people and imagine you are there with them. Try closing your eyes to imagine them more clearly.
Breathe in deeply and when you breathe out imagine stress and worries are leaving your body. Sometimes in quiet times like this, emotions can pop up unexpectedly and that's okay. For the moment, let them be.
When you're ready, open your eyes, stretch up your arms, and rotate your body from side to side. Acknowledge how lucky you are to be you in this moment.
