Yesterday we mentioned that the longer days and summer months are the ideal time to enjoy being outside, with hopefully the sun coming out to play. It is also the ideal time – to make time – to watch the sunset.
Everyone enjoys a good sunset, I’ve never met anyone that didn’t, and while I can’t put my finger on exactly why I like sunsets so much, watching the sun go down (although it doesn’t technically go down) is one of my favourite things. In fact, I would hazard a guess that #sunset is up there with the most popular hashtags on Instagram, it’s certainly what I’ve posted the most of.
I’ve been lucking enough to visit places that have particularly amazing sunsets, from Goa, to Sydney to Suryalila (a yoga retreat in Andalusia), and what amazes me about these places is that no sunset is exactly the same.
They always seem to produce different shades of colour which makes me appreciate the wonders of nature every time. A good sunset always leaves me feeling immensely satisfied as well.
If meditating is your thing (and a little bit of some sort of meditation should be everyone’s thing), then what better way to end the day with some calm reflection, or chanting as the sun is setting.
For the fellas out there who are trying to woo a date, then a little picnic in front of a sunset should get the desired response, whatever that may be. Little disclaimer here, I’m not on of these Dating Coaches or Pick Up Artists but if I was, I’d be recommending sunset picnics. You can all thank me if and when you do get the desired result from your date if you make time to watch the sunset.
In these summer months especially, find reasons to get outside rather than sitting in the house in front of the TV, or computer, or tablet, with watching the sunset a good a reason as any.
