It's not easy as it sounds. Letting go takes effort and practice. Find your own outlet that helps you take a break. Mine is being in nature and going back to nature.
My favorite spot in the world is any where with a warm weather and a sandy beach. I don't pack much for such a trip. After all it is a cleansing trip (body and soul). It's amazing how we hold on to things even though it takes so little for us to be.
Makeup, accessories, heels, purses are staying back at home. You don't need much in nature to look your best. I picked a simple soft comfortable white dress and layered it with an olive tunic. I love the pastels colors of the ocean and I like to blend with the back ground and become one with the waves.
