Rest and relaxation, is it a lost practice?

Throughout the COVID pandemic, we appear to have lost the practice of taking some ‘you time’ for ourselves.

Our lives are filled with the ‘do and don’t’ rules of the Pandemic management plan forced on us by the various levels of government in all too frequently inconsistent foundations, all of which are done with the ethos of ‘keeping us safe’.

Somewhere in the mix, our down time is missing out and we are at risk of becoming increasingly more fatigued as humans, as we see not immediate end to the pandemic that has ground our planet to an uneasy poise.

Getting out and about at the Head (Queensland)
Getting out and about at the Head (Queensland)

This post is a reminder to get out there and enjoy a bit of you time in the outback and beyond the black stump.

Go somewhere you would not ordinarily venture and enjoy the fresh air free from face masks, rules of oppression and the looming threat of death, disease and penalty.

Get out on country and put your feet deep in Mother Earth and ask yourself if you’re where you want to be in life.

Spend a night under the stars in the deep outback and acknowledge how little we are in the greater universe and that the world really will not stop spinning if you take some time out for yourself and your loved ones.

Live, love and let what will be, just be.
