My “Vitamin Sea” level is down to zero. Not good. Something is not going the way it is supposed to, at least when listening to the prioritisation list of my heart. Just winter blues? Or a really bad case of not enough vitamin sea?
As usual in the first quarter, the kids are down frequently with all sorts of virus and God knows what infections. The sun is blocked by clouds, most of the times at least. And it is either raining, freezing cold or, on a good day, just not nice enough to spend a lot of time outside.
Work keeps me away from Vitamin Sea
In addition to my whining above, I travel quite a fair bit for work right now. And that in what I call “the wrong direction”, i.e. away from the sea. I know, I shouldn’t complain, at least there is work, kids and the sea.
It would, however, be heavenly to have all three in one location. But that is a different story.
The sea is calling, I can hear it ‘loud and clear’. All I would need to do is drop everything, catch a train and fulfil one of my heart’s biggest desires: listen to the sound of the waves, breath in salty air, feel the sand on my fingers, beneath my toes.
It is not only sailing that gives me such pleasure and peace of mind, it is also spending time near the sea.
The solution for today’s dilemma, for fighting my lack of vitamin sea, is quite simple. I will
- look at a couple of pictures from last year’s hiking tour around Fehmarn
- check out the sound of the Baltic Sea
- close my eyes
- and dream away.
That should do the trick for today and maybe also for the rest of the week. One of the upcoming weekends should allow for a brief trip to the shores of the Baltic Sea, so re-filling the internal level of sea-happiness is not too far away.
What do you do when some kind of “blues” hits you heavily?
