Hi, I’m Becks.
I live in the North East of England near the beach in Sunderland, which is where I grew up (although I’m just a big kid really and haven’t quite ‘grown-up’ yet😏).
The beach has always been my special place. It is a place of freedom, fun, a sanctuary, somewhere to run (hey that rhymes 🤣). In all seriousness though the sea has always brought a sense of calmness to my body and mind. It removes any day-to-day stressors, presses the “re-set” button and you return from the sea feeling chilled-out (pun intended) and refreshed. I simply love the beach and being in the sea – there’s no feeling like it!
I also love anything that involves being outside and being fit and active. Having a healthy mind and body is something I am passionate about and I try to instill this in my job, working as a PE Teacher in a school for young people with additional needs.
I have sea dipped regularly since 2018, but after meeting Hayley in July 2020, cold showers and sea dipping have become a daily thing along with breathwork and kundalini yoga. I have met the most inspiring and wonderful people through WSW, many of whom have become close friends.
To feel part of this amazing sea community has been life-changing for me, and I encourage people to give it a go!
Sea you at the beach!
