As y’all know I adore Puerto Rico! When visiting a country you love, do you try create new adventures by exploring or do you keep the same routine? In Puerto Rico, I tend to keep the same routine, find a spot on the beach and tan this melanin skin tone. Lately I’ve been seeing the island, spending time with the locals, getting to do more than just spend time at the beach. However I do enjoy, simply doing, nothing. There’s so much of my life, my time spent doing, that when I don’t have to, I’d rather not.

Tired AF

Have you ever been tired AF but unable to find any rest at night?

This week I just couldn’t sleep! I’ve stopped taking sleeping pills to help me sleep a few years ago, and I refuse to go back to that routine. I would usually drink peppermint tea about an hour before ‘bedtime’ to try to ready my body for sleep. Since I moved to the new spot in Queens, I haven’t had the opportunity to purchase tea, or a mug so that’s been a wrap.

Since I love the beach, even though I have yet to visit one this summer, I found beach sounds on Spotify last night. I can’t be sure that was the cure to my insomnia but it definitely worked beautifully. I felt like I was sitting at my usual spot in Puerto Rico, under the sun, just blissfully relaxing. It was such a feeling! Its incredible how music can just transport us, damn there physically to another place.

Needless to say, I slept amazingly. What’s your trick when you can’t sleep?
