Petri Tamminen: Get in shape for the beach – an effective relaxation program

DOES NOT LOOK GOOD. It’s already June, but my mind still hasn’t calmed down. When you’re so restless, it’s useless to dream of calm days at the beach, a blanket spread out in the shade and watching clouds. A lot of self-discipline is still required before the mind relaxes into beach condition.

Fortunately, there are ways. In the following, my own suggestion for a fitness program, by following which you can be yourself at the beach, in the best possible world.

Much intended. But you can’t go to the mind control gym if your goals aren’t high.

Worries are a flock of geese. A huge swarm of host creatures.

But we also have a willing mind capable of controlling geese. Think of the willing mind.

Of course, someone always escapes. Let it go.

However, you can gently calm most of them back into their flock.


When the car behind or in front annoys you, or when it seems unbearable that the diphthong in the speech is disappearing or that someone manages to pick up diphthongs, think of ants.

The anthill is swarming. It is a characteristic of an anthill. If there is an ant, you should tolerate the buzzing.

Also think that getting annoyed is a bad way to solve problems because it doesn’t solve problems.


It is quite possible to say: “The world is burning.” Or at least: “The world is on fire.” And to that it is possible to say: “I can’t stand the world burning, I give up and go to bed.”

But it’s equally possible to say: “I’ll find out what burnout is.” I separate feelings and knowledge. I remember my strength. I’m going to become a professional firefighter for my own life, I’m needed.”


If you’ve thought that you can handle fear and shame and hurt no matter how much, stop doing it. Start saving on emotional costs.

Big negative emotions are a significant expense. Attract yourself to bartering: when I don’t get depressed worrying about this very thing, I save a lot of energy for something more cheerful.


Even the traditional definition of beach fitness can prevent the beach fitness of the mind. There isn’t a body that you can’t find something to be shy about. Who is it suddenly for people to see, almost naked.

Think then: This diverse beach is clearly missing a person like me. It won’t work. The swimming beach must be very diverse. This is not a proper beach without me.
