I recently went away last weekend to Woodgate on both Friday and Sunday to catch up with my sista, it was so good to get away and enjoy the sun, even if it resulted in three days with terrible sunburn and a whole bottle of aloe vera. Nonetheless, It was so lovely to get some Vitamin D into me and soak up those sunrays with walks along the ocean, tanning, and going for a much-needed ocean swim. Here are some photos from the time away.
After going away for even these short amounts of time, being just with my gal pal and my boyfriend on Sunday I came home feeling recharged, re-energised, revitalised and ready for the new week ahead.Having just started my new job, I realised it is actually important you take ‘me time’ and spend your afternoons or days off getting out of your routine and doing something you enjoy with the ones you love getting to spend time with.
The best thing for revitalising is to go outside, get some Vitamin D, go for a walk, a run, go to the beach, go for a swim, just get outside and do something that gives you energy but also something you enjoy and you can find relaxation in. Take sometime for you, grab your gal pals, your man or girl and get outside, run around, go on adventure, treat your days off as holidays and have as much fun as humanely possible. Don’t stress about the day after tomorrow, just live in the moment and worry about work when it comes to it, find an occupation you love or one you know will be of benefit to your dream career, do something you enjoy and make new friends whilst you’re at it.
My dad would always say to me when I was little, and still does to this day, find a passion and make it an occupation. He also said that there would be trouble in the camp and I always thought that meant there would be trouble when we went on camping trips, however, nonetheless, make your 9-5 a job you love and want to excel in.
Take those days off as rewards and do something that will make you happy for the rest of the week, plan something for the next day off to look forward. Make yourself happy each week and you will never go a day without having one moment where you can laugh and smile about something. Enjoy life lovelies, and at the end you will look back and just like Imagine Dragons, you will say ‘I Lived’!
What’s your getaway, What’s your passion?
