The sweet, simple life in Wildwood, NJ June 2021
A simple life is a beautiful life…said by every simply beautiful soul…
What’s your idea of the perfect day? It being summer, I like to keep things simple. Sure, a 5-mile run can get the heart (among other things, I imagine) pumping, but a long walk along the ocean just as the sun meets the sky is guaranteed to feed the spirit. A good book, an iced tea and a comfy chair on a sweet, little porch may not set the world on fire, but it’s certain to make my day complete. Throw in the occasional ocean breeze and we’ve got ourselves the makings of a perfectly uncomplicated afternoon.
Keeping that seabreezey spirit soaring (and needing to chill even more after that imagined 5-mile run), I prefer beach yoga (sun salutation being a must) to kickboxing, two-story sandcastle building to fat burning (a workout for the arms and the mind); soul stirring as opposed to weight lifting. An elliptical bike may burn more cheese fries/ice cream-related calories, but a boardwalk bike ride will provide the best view.
Mehmet Murat ildan once advised, “Live a simple life; you will own the most beautiful treasures of the world.”
Wishing you a bit of sand and sea combined with a healthy dose of sun; the simplest of seaside treasures…
