Qi Gong at the Beach
We had our first 'sprinkle' of snow last night. No big deal....only a few centimeters. We had the snow tires put on last week and we are ready for anything!!!
After lunch with Dad (we had Japanese) Ron, Sophie and I headed to the beach. It had turned quite mild.....4C degrees and no wind! Perfect for walking.
Since it was low tide, we walked along the beach instead of taking the boardwalk and trail. What a difference it made with no wind.......much like late March around here.
Sophie was very happy to be on the beach. There were some sandy areas, so she had a ball (literally too) running everywhere.
When we got to the far end of the beach, the sun was starting to break through and a blue sky appeared in the east. It was really quite nice. So I thought it would be good to do some Qi Gong.
It took about 15 minutes to go through the 7 movements. As I was staring out at the Atlantic Ocean, I couldn't help but feel a sense of exhilaration. As always, whenever we do Qi Gong at the beach Sophie digs the obligatory hole!
I've said this before but I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have accessibility to the ocean. I've read somewhere that there are a lot of negative ions along the ocean's edge. When one walks near it positive vibes are created and you feel really good. Read more here if you don't believe me!
After the Qi Gong I took a few pictures to try and capture a 'sense' of the beach today.
If you have a chance, why not treat yourself and go for a walk in the mountains ( no wonder you always feel so good Inger), near a water-fall or along a beach.
Oh yeah, with doing the Qi Gong and all those negative ions, we 'floated' home.....I think.
