The weather is getting colder at the shore, and with the drop of the thermometer, we instinctively wish to slow down and rejuvenate our souls.
However, this natural inclination is at direct odds with what happens after the holiday season, usually one of the most stressful times of the year. Because of the perceived need to rush from place to place, and overindulgence of food and drink, it is no wonder anxiety pulsates at an all-time high.
While the shopping and frenzy of visitors did not change, you absolutely should take moments for yourself now. It is imperative to your well-being to take the time over these next few months to just be. We live at the shore and are blessed to have the ocean, where you can feel at peace, relax, and recharge your energy.
Anxiety is not something to fight or run from; it is your body speaking to you. It is letting you know that you are overwhelming yourself, and it is time to rest and let go of that which is no longer needed.
Take a tip from nature, slow down and build strength from within, by maintaining a time for you every day. This will carry you after all the festivities in a healthy, balanced way while enjoying a newfound peace beyonfd wonderful chaos.
