Moments of Tranquility in NYC

This summer, I’m living and interning in New York City! I’m very excited to be living here in the Big Apple and to continue my goals towards a career in public relations. While I am very excited, my anxiety has also been at an all-time high.

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve arrived and I’m still getting accustomed to being here. The building where I live is just a few blocks away from the East River, so I often venture there for an after-work run. One day, I ended up staying outside for longer than I had anticipated, it was so beautiful. We often think that finding tranquility and serenity in a bustling city like New York is impossible, but sometimes that peacefulness is right down the street.

I ended up walking over a bridge and was pleasantly surprised to find a park on the other side that offered the most breathtaking views of the city. Moments like this make me realize how lucky I am to be living in an amazing place like this. If you have anxiety like I do, you understand the importance of clearing your mind and finding space to calm yourself. This can be done by going for a run, drawing a picture, or enjoying the scenery. This is how I found my peace this summer:






Even in the busiest and most hectic of places, peacefulness is all around us. You just have to be willing to look for it.
