This week is Make, Do and Push! Mash-up week, as I’m on holiday (hopefully) relaxing! I’ve asked some lovely, talented, fellow bloggers to write guest posts with the theme “Seaside”, as I’m holidaying by the sea.
The week kicks off with a guest post from the lovely Lauren over at The Real Housewife of Suffolk. She writes about the benefits of living by the sea – accompanied by some gorgeous photos. I had a lovely run on the beach last night, barefooted in the rain, whilst slightly tipsy on gin. But it definitely made me feel better after a long(ish) car journey. I imagine I’ll repeat that later – why am I telling you this? Because there certainly are benefits to living (or even being) by the sea! Anyway, Lauren, take it away!
I’ve grown up living on the Suffolk Coast. Something which as a child I probably took for granted. I always knew that we were lucky to have the beach right at our doorstep but it wasn’t until I moved away at 18 that I really appreciated just how lucky we really were.
I’ve taken a little bit of time to think about the benefits of living near the coast and visiting the coast:
Fresh air: It’s an obvious one I know, but you can’t beat a day out in the fresh air. Especially when it’s fresh sea air.
It clears your mind: I love going to the beach if I feel stressed or like I need a distraction from everyday life. Not only is it good to get the fresh air but the open space, the views out to sea can be really therapeutic.
