My Calm Place

No matter where I am in the world if there is a beach I will be there. The beach is my favorite place to visit. It’s my calm place and where I go when I need to be a lone. The sound of the waves soothes me and the breeze from the waves makes me feel rejuvenated.

There is something about looking out into the ocean and listening to the waves that makes me feel everything will be okay. I can spend hours on the beach without realizing the amount of time passing by because I become at ease. On January 13th I was stressed and missing home, so I drove to North Myrtle Beach, SC and spent three hours on the beach without realizing it. Living close by the beach is something I miss so I take advantage of every opportunity I receive.

We  overload ourselves and wonder whether we really can cope with the pressure that come a long with it.

When I become stress, I exercise, watch a movie, or listen to music. During my senior year of high school I realized that running helped me to release stress. I can’t focus on anything such as studying, completing school work, and etc when stress builds upon on me.
