There's so much hustle and bustle in our everyday lives from kids to work to bills to weekend activities and beyond. Sometimes it can feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and you just need a moment to shut out all the "noise."
If you happen to live in Maine (or even if you're just visiting), the Pine Tree State has your respite.
Because Maine is filled with natural beauty in the outdoors from secluded walks in the woods to quiet climbs up local mountains. It's the perfect place to take in the sounds of a gentle breeze, the chirping of a robin in spring, the crunch of feet under winter snow, or even the crashing of ocean waves.
It feels like the perfect place to destress. But if you can't get away to the outdoors that easily, thankfully, it can come to you.
The York, Maine, Police Department posted this mesmerizing Facebook video of waves crashing on a November morning. Just give it a watch and listen, and you can let everything else around you fade away.
You can enjoy the beauty of Maine whether you're here or just missing it from far away.
There's even a YouTube video that's over an hour of sounds and video of crashing waves in Portland to help relax you.
Does it relax you? What are some other sounds and locations of relaxation in Maine you enjoy?
It's OK to take that moment to relax, and what better place than Maine to do it?
