Whenever my soul feels stifled or my thoughts to scattered, I bundle up my little ones and take them to the sea side for a couple of days. Not only does the open horizon work miracles on my inspiration and energy levels, my mind comes to rest at the sounds of the seashore.
Teach your children to listen
With a little guidance, you can propose that your children stop for a moment and listen to those sounds of the sea, splashing waves, and sea-gull-screams. Now they are mindful and enjoying it right now!
Then listen intently
The sea is the sounds of summer. It’s so great to lie on the sand with your eyes closed, enjoying the fresh sea breeze, sun rays on your children’s faces and listening to the sounds of beach. The buzz of popular dance music playing in the nearby bar, the sound of the waves and sea-gulls, and the happy laughter of bantering people.
Recollecting these funny summer days, my heart yearns to stroll the wide open beaches again and again. And to listen to and breathe the atmosphere of the beach!
