Seems we all have our escape mechanisms when life gets difficult. Some of us unwind in front of the TV, some have a drink or two, some take a nap, and the list goes on. When life becomes too busy or the stress starts baring down on my shoulders, I like to escape to the country. Something about the fresh air and all that open space on a beautiful day just calms my nerves, so it’s not unusual for me to ask hubby to go for a drive in the country.
You turn the corner and are greeted by a beautiful rustic barn. The country scenes inspire me and make me forget what was bothering me to begin with. You certainly can’t live creatively inspired when the cares of the world are dragging you down.
For me, the beauty of farm fields and barns is just as breathtaking as a view of the ocean. The air is fresh and clean out here, the traffic is minimal, and the sounds of nature are all around. An escape to the country is like a mini vacation for me … even if it’s just for an hour or two. What’s one of your favorite ways to de-stress and unwind so that you can live creatively inspired?
