Yoga, fishing and surfing are my three greatest passions (besides writing). The purpose of this blog is not only to share my own experiences with these activities, but also to create a welcoming space. If something speaks to you, please feel free to comment and share. Together, we can build community of advice with the intention of promoting positivity and mental health awareness.
These activities can all be very challenging. No matter what activity I am doing, I will definitely accept as much as advice and encouragement as possible!
Yoga tremendously helps me on my journey. At times, it is the glue that holds my life together. I am healthier mentally, physically and emotionally when I practice yoga regularly. I took my first yoga class over 10 years ago and I have a lot to say about it. I am hoping to use this platform to share the reasons I find it to be so beneficial for mental health, along with tips and tricks for a fruitful practice. Yoga can be intimidating and challenging when you are a beginner, but it doesn’t have to be! If you are equipped with correct information and have the right mindset, you will enjoy your practice every step of the way.
Fishing is my #1 passion. I fish both freshwater and saltwater, inshore and offshore. I’ve been fishing since childhood and can tell you first hand; being out in nature and on the water are extremely beneficial to mental health. When fishing you are part of something larger than yourself. Catching fish is the ultimate thrill but respect for the fish and the environment must be a main focus. It truly takes a lot of dedication and perseverance to improve in this sport. It’s hard work and it can be frustrating at times. I’ve learned a lot of things the hard way and continue to face an array of challenges on my journey. This platform will promote positivity, equality, conservation, and education in fishing, while also being realistic about the common challenges and difficulties anglers face in todays world.
Surfing is the extreme challenge in my life. I am very much a beginner/novice but its more of a journey for me, just like yoga or fishing. I had always wanted to learn how to surf. In 2018, I finally took a lesson and I fell in love instantly. I knew I would. The ocean called to me and I listened. Like fishing, surfing completely immerses you in nature. Surfing has has given me some of the coolest experiences of my life. Being that I’m still at the beginning of my journey, I’ve experienced a ton of failure and a few successes. I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences and struggles I’ve had as a beginner. If I can speak to one thing, it’s getting into the right mind and space to get back out there and keep trying.
