The pandemic can be a very isolating and frightening time, but there are ways to combat anxiety and stress during these uncertain times. Below are Ranee Ruble-Dotts from California Association of Boutique & Breakfast Inns  and Inn at Playa Del Rey‘s thoughts on health tips for improved mental health through unprecedented times:

  • Take a walk around the beach and watch the sunrise and sunset, and try some of the beach yoga in the beach  
  • Cruise on the bike path that runs for 30 miles along the beach.
  • Check out the 600+ acre Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve. The reserve is a protected haven for native flora and fauna, a surprising bit of coastal sanctuary in Los Angeles county. Immerse in nature in your off-hours. It’s soothing to sit on the deck with your morning coffee and watch Great Blue Herons glide over the wetlands.

A Seaside sojourn and wine country escape is the perfect escape, while staying safe and away from crowds.
