Yesterday I went on a walk along the coastal path between Folkestone and Sandgate and then sat and did my meditation on the beach. I love the sea – the sound and the smell make me feel at home. I feel very blessed to have grown up near the coast and to be be living here again. To be able to go down to the beach, look out over the water and listen to the waves and the seagulls is a real gift. I almost prefer it on cold, crisp, sunny days like yesterday because it was so quiet and peaceful – hardly a person in sight. It nourishes my soul. You can’t beat it and that’s why I’ve decided to start this blog on mindfulness and wellbeing on the Kent coast. For me there’s no better place. It feels good to be home.
