Twisting your toes in the sand…

Yesterday I sat down on the stairs at Gull Pond to stop and observe, something many of us fail to do, including myself. As I observed the many people having a great time and enjoying the sunshine, a young boy sat down on the step beside me and began to plant his feet firmly in the sand. This is also an activity that I enjoy, even to this day. I believe there is a calming affect that takes place when you wiggle your toes in the sand, I suppose you could call it grounding one’s self. Just like the sun from above energizes all living things, so does the sand energize as well. One of my favorite things to do when I am at the ocean, is to stand at the waters edge and allow the waves to wash around my feet, with each passing wave your feet will sink deeper into the sand, it is a very relaxing feeling.

Next time you’re at the beach, stop for a moment; allow your feet to be planted in the sand, I think it is an exercise you won’t soon forget.

Yoga isn’t the only thing that makes one feel good…
