|hot cocoa break means time for silly selfies!|
I tend to live life at full speed. I have a very hard time taking any downtime for myself. I feel like I always need to be doing something. Skiing lets me feel like I am doing something, and yet relaxing at the same time. It just just enough concentration to keep my mind off other things, but also lets my mind take a break.
It also satisfies my need to do some sort of exercise every day, but lets my body recover from the high impact stuff I do every other day.
My phone rarely works, and even if I have a signal, it usually freezes after a few minutes and dies anyway. It is good to unplug.
Plus, no digital distractions means fiance and I actually have to talk to each other on the lift.
It gives me my weekly fix of fresh air and nature.
It gives me an excuse to drink massive quantities of hot chocolate.
It also makes me feel like it is legit to go to bed at 8 pm because I got up at 5:30 to get to the mountain and skied all day.
What is your favorite way to escape from the world?
