Travelling can be stressful at times and this was one of those days.
But watching this sunset over the estuary at Maketu, on New Zealand’s North Island, all the stress of the day disappeared.
After a long deep breath, all was right with our world.
Now, that’s what I call serene!
How to find some serenity and calm in your day?
On my Apple watch I have a free app that pops up regularly, called Breathe – funnily enough it’s all about breathing.
Once it’s activated it says in a message on the watch face – Be still and bring your attention to your breath, now inhale and exhale.
You can use the Breathe app to help relax and focus on your breathing. The Breathe app then guides you through a series of deep breaths, and it reminds you to take time to breathe every day. You can open the app at any time, but it will automatically prompt you to begin a focused breathing session every five hours.
You breathe in when it expands and breathe out when it contracts. … Fortunately, the watch also gives you a series of gentle haptic taps on the wrist to let you know when to breathe in. It’s quite compelling and very easy to use.
Some people get sick of it but every now and again I enjoy the opportunity to stop and just take some deep breaths. Apparently there are lots of similar apps available out there but this is the only one I have used.
Take a deep breath

Wishing you some calmness and quiet time among the busy fun filled days ahead.
