I don’t have any specific “typical morning” as each day my schedule differs. I try to incorporate a walk into my mornings either through the suburbs surrounding my little flat or along the beach.
Earlier this year I bought my own and first flat and it is only 8 minutes drive from the beautiful Blouberg beach of Cape town, South-Africa. These morning walks serve three purposes. Getting some fresh air, exercise and getting me to leave the house as I work from home. But I have found that my walks along the beach are very rewarding. Not only do I feel refreshed, the sound of the ocean and the waves breaking on the rocks have a very calming effect on my soul.
It doesn’t matter how hard my day or week has been, what I have been worried or stressed about, after a walk along the beach I feel like I can take on the world again. As I listen to the waves, letting the sound become all I hear, it washes my stress away even if there are a couple of seagulls screeching nearby.
With the view of Table Mountain and Cape Town in the distance as I head back I feel recharged and ready for what ever the day brings.
