Day 5 — Just outside Stöðvarfjörður

More later, but please enjoy this Icelandic Moment of Zen. (If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen this there.)

And when you are bothered and stressed, remember that there are places like this in the world. Sometimes with all the stresses of modern life, all we really need is to remember to breathe. So too do the waves move in and out from the shore, retreating only to gather strength and come back in again. Often, when we concentrate on something natural, we can slow our own breathing and restore our sense of calm and balance.

And even if you’re not in front of something like this in person, you can always return to a place like this (or a similar place that calms you) in your mind. Whenever you’d like.
