unwind week: the beach

June 20, 2012

In honor of the first official day of summer, today’s method of unwinding is a trip to the beach! As the daylight hours have been getting longer and longer, there have been more and more opportunities to enjoy a few evening hours at the beach, even after a long day of work. There is nothing more relaxing than the sand between your toes as you listen to the crashing waves. Occasionally I’ll bring a book along on one of these evening excursions, but most of the time a hot drink, a beach blanket, and the sunset are all I need.

Now don’t be discouraged if the beach isn’t exactly an option as a place to unwind. Something about sitting by almost any body of water seems to have a calming effect; so find yourself a lake, a pond, even a swimming pool where you can sit outside for an hour or two with your hot drink (or, if you are located in an area where the temperature doesn’t drop much in the evenings, your refreshing iced tea), and enjoy your view of the water. And of course, if your office meetings and deadlines permit, there’s always the option of a weekend getaway for some extended unwinding on the beach.
