Devil’s Lake Relaxation | Baraboo Wisconsin
For some reason, this year has been a lot of me struggling with wanting to do more. More relaxation with Justin, more hiking, more cookouts, more time with friends & family, more work, photographing as much as possible, trying to make a movement with Rad Photographers Retreat just more. I also find myself scrolling through social media and seeing others doing more – I am not comparing really, just feel like I am falling behind. I know others feel this – so I am writing this blog to ensure them, YOU, that you’re not alone in this feeling.
Yesterday I got this massive feeling of regret and dread – so I looked at Justin and said were getting out of this apartment. We packed up our grill, Hello Fresh Meal, (use that link to save $40!) drinks, and hopped in the car to Devil’s Lake State Park. We hiked a few miles along the bluff then cooked our Hello Fresh Meal while the sunset behind lake and bluffs. Even though I went on the hike with a pretty empty stomach and swore a ton (I am in really bad shape…) we hiked at least 2 or so miles. Up and down steep steps – but it got out all the anger I was feeling. It allowed me to clear my head and go back home refreshed.
What I suggest doing when you feel like the world in collapsing around you:
Call a friend – vent all that is bothering you.
Go for a walk – put in those headphones and walk. Walk while emptying those thoughts into the world.
DO NOT let it fester inside of you! This is the #1 thing to remember. The more you let it fester the worse it gets! Trust me, as someone who drank 6 days a week in college because I didn’t talk to anyone about the frustrations I had. Not the healthiest way to deal!
If you don’t know who to call, text or talk to – email, text me! I am here for you! I don’t care if you are states, cities, or blocks apart – I am here to help ya see just how fucking awesome you are! Life sucks sometimes, we all need someone to let us relax, vent and just get it out of your mind and heart.
