Your Recipe for Success

BEACH TIME ……… or is it MEDITATION TIME?

BeachI am sitting on the beach, pen on the ready and blank pages in front of me.

Time for some new articles for Mind Recipes®, but the ideas were just not flowing.

The breeze is blowing in my hair and the sounds of waves in the background, I find myself getting lost in the moment, staring out to the ocean when I suddenly realized that 30 minutes had passed…..30 minutes of utter bliss where I wasn’t really thinking about anything – just taking in the sights and sounds of this beautiful day.

When I came back to earth, the ideas were flowing and I am frantically writing without even thinking. This is what was needed today – some relaxation and bliss time.

Have you experienced times when there are things to be done or decisions to be made when your head is all a muddle and your thoughts are jumping all over the place?

Whilst we can’t always arrive at the beach and have this time, spending 5-10 minutes or 30 minutes of relaxation/meditation works wonders to clear your mind of the clutter and to begin thinking clearly.

Take some time today just for you. You may not need to write an article or make a decision. You may just need to relax and revitalize yourself.

By spending a few moments a day meditating, going for a walk or spending time in your special place, be that at the beach, under a tree, in a park or a forest, the remainder of your day progresses more productively.

Don’t use “I don’t have time” as an excuse. Create the memories which will last a lifetime.

I was playing with my Grandson at the beach making sandcastles and collecting shells. What a beautiful way to spend the day.

Listening to him laugh and concentrate on building his sandcastle, it really bought home what is important in my life.

It is worth it and YOU ARE WORTH IT. Take the time TODAY.

  1. It is so true! When my mind is relaxed, I can be more productive. And yes..I do take time out in my busy day to take a “mind break” as I call it.

    I sure can relate to you sitting on the beach. I live near one and bring my work with me. I never get it done, but more importantly, relax, clear my mind, be one with the sound of the waves.

    When I return home, I’m full of clarity.

    The beach is my favorite place. I hadn’t thought about my time there being like meditation, but i guess it is. I lose all track of time and feel so good afterwards.

    I am truly delighted to read this. Plenty of useful information

  5. Wonderful message and I couldn’t agree more! I spend much of my day writing and yep, there are times when out of the blue it’s like my brain has stepped out for some ice cream. When this happens I never beat myself up I know it just means I need a mental health break. For me more often than not it’s a walk down to the park with my dog – if I’m really feeling drained I’ll take an afternoon and go for a hike somewhere. The key is moving and getting fresh air – revives me every time. Thanks for the inspiration!
