The summer season has come to an end. It has been a summer I’m sure many of us would like to forget and one I hope will never be repeated. The devastating bushfires which so many lives and homes were lost. I had several friends who almost lost their homes down around Bega and in the Southern Highlands. The lost of wildlife which so sad to which our koala is close to extinction. Sydney was blanketed in smoke for months as the bushfires burned making it hard to breathe some days.
We endured drought and then we had the rain which was needed but only to bring floods. So nature has not been kind to Australia this summer as it says farewell for another season. As I take my last walk along the beach for summer which is slowly becoming isolated, it’s time to reflect what has occurred. You can feel the nip in the air in the mornings and evening. The autumn months will approach with the leaves on the tree turning a beautiful golden colour.
I enjoy spending time outdoors whether at the beach or in the country which is good for you on both a mental and physical level. In the evenings I will go for a stroll along the beach to clear my head and soak up that sea air. But did you know that the health benefits of going to the beach and spending time at the beach is now referred to as “blue space” because of the peace and calmness you experience.
Reduces stresses by making you feel at ease;
Boosts your creativity by clearing your head to allow you to clearly focus;
Help in reduce feelings of depression; and
Change your perspective on life.
So next time you are at the beach taking a dip in the water or just watching the waves, enjoy that feeling of relaxation and enjoy the health benefits of going to the beach.
If you need some relaxation and would like a fun day at the beach, why not see my services and book a date and I would be happy to take you and we can share the effects of the beach together.
