We created Okanui apparel for people who have a passion for escaping the everyday, believing in making this a lifestyle and would like to inspire you to do the same. Here are a few suggestions on how you can begin your journey:
We understand that surfing might not be for everyone, still being a surf apparel brand; we feel the need to preach the incredible feeling that comes from surfing. For us, there is no better feeling than being in the ocean; it feels like you forget everything else in the world except the waves and you.
Wake up early and watch the sunrise
It can be easy to fall into the habit of waking up 10 minutes before you have to leave for work, but rather than staying in bed why not set your alarm and wake up before the sun? Call us crazy, but we love dragging ourselves out of bed, making a coffee (of course) and heading to the beach to watch the sunrise. You have a sense of accomplishment for escaping your everyday routine of waking up and heading straight to work.
Take a Road – trip
Changing your environment can provide you with a brief escape from the everyday, and we’ve found taking a road – trip is our ideal way to do this. We are lucky enough to live in Australia with pristine coastlines, wide-open roads and abundant national parks. So instead of staying and watching Netflix for the third week in a row, pack your bags and head out on the open road to re-energise, recharge and refresh for the week ahead.
Book in time with Family & Friends
The simplest way to escape the everyday is by spending time with your nearest and dearest, proven to reduce stress and increase happiness. Spending time to spend with your friends and family is the best way to create memorable experiences. So, carve out some time and schedule in a walk, dinner or movie with the people who bring you joy.
