10 Nov The Lockdown Survival Guide For Surfers
The Lockdown Survival Guide For Surfers
1. KEEP SURF FIT
2. BECOME YOUR OWN MASTERCHEF
3. GET YOUR VITAMIN SEA FIX
If you can, try and submerge yourself in some water. It’s crazy how much of a release the ocean can do for the mind. If you can get your daily dip in, then that’s the perfect exercise which will keep you set for the rest of the day. Even if it’s just a quick 2-minute swim! It’s always worth it!
4. BOOST YOUR BREATH HOLD
Master the art of the breath-holding. There are many health benefits of this special breathing method, such as; Stress release, faster recovery from physical exertion, improved sleep, better sports performance, enhanced creativity and more focus and mental clarity. It’s not often we get the chance to sit and practice these delicate skills, so nows a great time to give this ago! CLICK HERE TO LEARN HOW.
5. CATCH THE SUNRISE
you are caught up in the natural beauty of the Earth (like a sunrise), you rid yourself of any distractions and feel higher levels of satisfaction and gratitude for what’s happening in front of you. Most importantly the morning light sets off a cascade of hormones and neurotransmitters which make you feel good. So get that alarm set!!!
6. SUPPORT LOCAL
If there’s ever been a time to enjoy a morning takeaway coffee, now’s the time to support our local businesses. We love grabbing a coffee for the go and then going for a little walk followed by a sit-down picnic.
7.MAKE YOUR OWN BOARD BAG
This is the perfect rainy day activity for any surfer! It’s also a great way to recycle any old material that’s just lying around. Check out our easy peasy method to create your own here.
8. BOARD REPAIR
9. TUNE OUT AND LISTEN IN
With so much rambling going on in the news, it’s a good time to tune out of the media and tune in to a podcast that really has your attention. Need some recommendations? Check out some of our faves HERE.
10. A LITTLE BIT OF TLC
Because honestly, you deserve it! So often we forget about our own self-care. If you can find 20 minutes for a hot bath, some gentle stretches or possibly even work on your mobility then it’s worth it. Alternatively, maybe your skin or hair needs some extra love? Try a leave-in conditioner or a face mask to leave you feeling shiny and new. Want to make your own face mask? Check out our DIY FACEMASKS TO HYDRATE + NOURISH YOUR SKIN here.
