Hippie Lifestyle

Personally, I’ve been trying to become more in tune with myself, be more natural, and be at peace. I researched a lot for this post and found LOTS of good tips and ideas! I’m here today to share them with you!

YOGA- Yoga is a great way to get in tune with yourself both physically and mentally. The word yoga translates to mean “to unite”. It’s a very calming exercise that promotes flexibility, improves your mood, helps relax you, and has many more positive effects!

AROMATHERAPY- For this, you’ll need essential oils made from natural materials. You can use aromatherapy for spiritual, hygienic, and therapeutic purposes. Different scents provide different benefits. It can help relieve stress, uplift your mood, help with anxiety, etc.

MEDITATION- Meditation induces relaxation, energy levels, and forgiveness. It helps you to clear your mind and bring you to a better place in your mental state. There are physical and mental benefits such as boosting serotonin, lowers high blood pressure, increases creativity, and promotes inner peace.

JOURNALISM- Writing down how you feel can help you so much. It’ll help you understand yourself better or a situation you’re going through. Putting it on paper allows you to be more honest with yourself since it’s not talking to another person.

CHAKRAS- I made a post in the past about balancing your chakras, but I ended up deleting it. There’s a lot of information that goes along with this and I’ll probably make a post about it again. Chakras are energies throughout your body, and if they get blocked by negative energy it could cause physical and emotional ailments. Being in balance with your chakras helps boost confidence and improves your mood.

REIKI- This is a form of healing by life force energy. You use your hands and guide all the energy into your palms and move it into the body to promote healing. This is a complex medicine alternative that takes lots of practice.

SUCCULENTS- Certain plants help to clear and purify the air around you, and they look beautiful, too!

INCENSE- By burning certain scents of incense, you can become more relaxed and peaceful. Calm down after a long day and let your senses take over.

That’s all for this post! I hope it helps you and you enjoyed reading it. I plan on making more posts like this, let me know what you think!

Rehoboth Beach Travel Diary

Rehoboth Beach was a fun trip with my mom and sister. Unfortunately for my mom, only our first full day there we were swimming and she got a huge ocean fishing hook caught in her toe! To make it worse, the hook had a barb on it so we couldn’t just pull it out right then and there… 

We ended up going to the emergency room all dressed up in our bathing suits, and boy let me tell you, it was freezing. The doctor ended up pushing the hook all the way through her toe by cutting the skin on the other side, snipping the barb off (which flew into my face), and pulling it out. Luckily my mom didn’t end up needing stitches, but it bled a lot. The only part that hurt her she said was the numbing shots and the tetanus shot they gave her. As you probably guessed they put her on an antibiotic to keep the wound from getting an infection.

We went to the outlets shopping almost everyday, and walked around the cute little shops in town and on the boardwalk a couple of times. Most of the stores on the boardwalk have basically the same stuff, but it was still fun to walk around and look through them! I ended up blowing a lot of money on new school clothes, which I might end up showing you guys in a YouTube video. Most of the outlets had some really good deals which is great.

We woke up really early in the morning on our third day to watch the sunrise, which was absolutely beautiful. I got some great pictures, one of which is the photo for this post! I’ll post a few of the others on the other social media I have under Day As Casey! Later that day, the dolphins came out. There were so many of them it had to have been multiple pods coming together but I don’t know my dolphinology too well so maybe not haha. They got really close to shore at one point at they were there for a long time. To make the sight even better, a couple of them put on a show for us and started jumping out of the water!

On our last full day it was rainy so we hit the outlets again and went to play mini golf. I thought I was going to be so bad at it but I ended up kicking butt and winning! I even ended up getting a hole-in-one and may or may not have let out a little scream of excitement, making some strangers jump… The course was super cute, too. It was set up as a rainforest or jungle type theme with water and mist machines and everything. The way it was set up though, I tripped and fell about five times into the bushes trying to retrieve my ball from hitting it in the wrong place. Despite looking like I was drunk tripping all over the place and screaming, I had a great time.

The trip overall was fun and relaxing for all of us, even my mom. We went to Rehoboth last year, and I hope to go again next year!
