1st Janaury 2022
We booked an impromtu few nights away. We wanted to get away from the aftermath of Christmas, illness's and work so we booked a last minute trip to the coast. The flat we are in overlooks the beach and is a short walk to the local village.
This morning I wanted to join 100's of others in starting the new year by swimming in the sea. It was freezing but very exhilerating. It felt like the pefect way to start a new year.
Throughout December I was feeling overwhelmed and sad by everyday stresses and pressures from work and home. This weekend away has helped us reconnect as a family of four, arguements has lessened and Mark and I have not thought about work.
Being in nature definately has healing, soothing properties. It calms our nervous system and helps us to feel relaxed. Although I won't be making any New Years Resolutions I will making intentions for the year and then break those down into monthly and weekly intentions. Being in nature more will be on my list.
Due to my health anxiety I am already feeling anxious about the children going back to school and all the illness's and bugs that go round in winter. I need to take my own advice and accept anxiety is part of who I am and try to 'ride the waves', reminding myself these feelings don't last.
