There is something about this time of year when it seems like EVERYone has been “finding their beach.” And I love it. (Especially for all of us in cold-weather climates) I have loved hearing about friends and co-workers beach vacations and just how refreshed they look and sound coming back from them. Sometimes all it takes is a few days in the sunshine with sand in your toes to renew and refresh your perspective on EVERYthing. This picture was taken from a girls trip to South Beach in Miami and sometimes it’s not just the experience of a beach vacation that makes you smile but also the wonderful memories!! So where is your favorite beach vacation? Oh and if you have no beach vacation in sight, I am incredibly impressed with a new App I recently downloaded. It’s called Buddhify and it gives you guided meditations that are as short as five minutes long that allow you to decompress and empty your mind. You can even use it while out walking or waiting in line. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to learn to meditate and this was a great first step!
