Stay Inspired With the Cooler Weather

Stay Inspired in Waihi Beach 

Are you feeling uninspired with the winter months approaching in our small beach town? Don't worry, there are plenty of ways to stay inspired and motivated even during the colder months. Here are some tips to keep your creative juices flowing:

1. Get outside and explore. Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't enjoy the beach. This might sound crazy, by give surfing a try. Take a walk along the shore and breathe in the brisk air. You may be surprised at how rejuvenating it can be. Whether you prefer a solitary walk or a walk with friends, it can be a great way to break out of a rut and feel energised. Take your shoes off and feel the sand on your feet.

2. Start a new hobby. Winter is the perfect time to learn something new. Whether it's surfing, knitting, painting, or cooking, find something that interests you and dive in. You could also try something that you've always wanted to do but never had the time for. The sense of accomplishment you'll feel when you master a new skill will help you stay motivated and inspired.

3. Staycation, why don’t you book a night at the local holiday park for you and your partner. Get the kids looked after (or bring the kids) and enjoy a night barbecuing your dinner, sitting under the stars with your best friends.

4. Read a book. Curling up with a good book is a classic way to escape the winter blues. Find a cozy spot and get lost in a new world.

5. Walk our local village. Although small, Waihi Beach has some cute shops, wonder around, pop into Slowly Golden store, smell all our candles and try on some cute outfits. Then walk down to the chocolate shop and stock up for your cosy movie night at home. Not only will you be contributing to your community, but you'll also be exposed to new ideas and perspectives wandering around without distraction.

6. Connect with others. Introduce yourself when you find someone out share your interests. Walking past someone on the local trail, stop and say hi. Out surfing? Create a conversation. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals can be motivating and inspiring. You could also try volunteering with a local organisation or charity in Waihi Beach, helping others can be a great way to find purpose and stay inspired.

Don't let the winter months get you down. Stay inspired and motivated with these tips. If you need more tips, pop in and see me at Slowly Golden. I’d love to share my favourite local things to do, hikes to go on and huts to sleep in.
