If you know a bit about me, you'll know that I love to swim in the sea.
I find it so relaxing, and so good for my mental health. The exercise, of course, is great but it's also such a calming experience, as you feel the water on your skin, the breeze on your face and, if you're lucky, the warmth of the sun on your skin.
In the summer time I do swim as often as possible, and it's been a joy this week to get in a few dips ... in between the hours at the computer ... working as a freelance writer and also concentrating a lot on researching and writing a new book.
One of my favourites for relaxing and swimming is Ouaisne Bay in the south west of the island ...it's at one end of a very popular tourist beach - St Brelade's Bay - but usually much quieter.
This week I managed to get a dip there ... and it was glorious. A great opportunity to ... just breathe really.
The sound of waves gently crashing on the shoreline can take me to a different place and can really help with my anxiety and stress levels. I find the sound of the sea so soothing and so good for 'de-stressing' my life.
So today, I just want to share some of those sounds with you and hope they will help you to.
Filmed at Ouaisne Bay this week.
Have a great weekend and ... stay chilled!
