I was chatting with my work-mates the other day about a self-help book that one of them was reading. One of the positive reinforcement exercise that she explained involved picturing yourself at a time or place where you feel completely relaxed, happy and stress-free.
This, combined with my recent trip to the Gower in south Wales with hubby, really put home a point for me:
The only place I feel really worry-free and at one with myself is at the coast.
Whether I’m scrambling over rocks at the bottom of cliffs in the freezing cold or gently strolling along a sunny sandy beach doesn’t seem to matter – I can’t help but feel good; relaxed and alive.
So there we go: I’ve found my happy place – where’s yours?
