So many of us have been 'locked down' for months now and are excited to get outside as life begins to open up again. Maybe we go out tentatively at first and don't want to stray too far from home. Travel this Summer is likely to be closer to home with restrictions, flights, cost, and the risks of each being taken into account.
If you live in fair proximity to the Coast, that is usually the place most people are drawn to first and especially in Summer. Why is that? Is it the desire for and effect of the 'blue mind'? That's the calming and life altering effect of looking out at a vast Ocean (sight), walking on the sand and swimming in the sea (touch), and smelling fresh salty, fragrant sea air (scent) that engages all of our senses for a much needed mental boost!
How do we hold on to that sense of wellbeing that the Ocean and Coastal experience brings to us? You can save images to your phone to scroll through, hang Coastal pictures or paintings in your home. Put out table books that feature Coastal or seaside travel destinations. Bring items you have collected like sand, stones and shells home from your visit to the beach. Then put them in jars or bowls to see and touch to remember those special trips.
Those are all great ways to design a Coastal inspired home. However, the best way to give yourself that quick hit of the 'blue mind' in your home or especially on your person is with scent. You can capture the wellbeing of the Coastal experience and Summer vibe without being near the sea itself, by incorporating the fresh scent of salted sea breezes, flora, fauna, warm sand and more.
