I’ve been having a bit of writers block lately on Anchored to Sunshine and I haven’t posted on Instagram for over a week-ish. But finally, last night as I was standing under the warm waterfall of my shower, this post came to me.
Where do you feel most content and at peace?
1. In a burning hot shower
I’m one of those people who likes a shower so hot I almost can’t stand it. In a shower I feel like all of the days stress and worries wash away. I’ve been known to stand in the shower for so long that I run out of hot water before even washing my hair. Every evening ends with a hot shower to help me relax.
2. 5am on my computer
Some people are night owls and some are morning people. I’m an early bird through and through. I may fall asleep at 9pm, but at 5am I’m wide awake and ready to take on the world. I love getting up early and clearing out my inbox and setting up my to do list for the day before anyone else is even awake. It’s that quiet time before sunrise over a cup of coffee and my computer that I feel most at ease. By the time anyone else is awake I’ve already set myself up for success.
3. Reading by candle light
I’ve been eying these Diptyque baies, rose, and figuier candles for almost a year and the boyfriend surprised me with them this weekend for my birthday. I could smell their amazing scent through the wrapping when he handed me the gift :) Curling up at night with my latest Hello Book Lover book, The Engagements, next to a great smelling candle is pretty much as calming and content as I could ever be.
4. Post workout
Assuming I’m not running late for work, mornings after I get home from the gym are so calming to me. The boyfriend is still pumping iron at the gym and I get a few quiet moments to enjoy something delicious. I usually dive into my avocado toast, which is overflowing with red pepper flakes, while listening to the latest Audible book on my phone. Those 5 minutes are precious and so relaxing.
What times during your day do you feel most content and at peace? As you can tell, since mine range from the shower to extra spicy avocado toast, there are no rules to where and when you feel content :)
