Social Detox || Weekend Getaway Eastbourne

I've had the most relaxing weekend in Eastbourne and I really enjoyed having a little bit of a social detox not going on Instagram all the time. I visited my friend and the weekend was all about relaxing, social detox, exercise and healthy eating. Luckily the weather was good, too! As Social Media Manager and Blogger I'm always on social platforms and there are days where I just feel drained and have enough of it. I left my phone either at home or in the bedroom as it's usable glued to my hand, which first gave a feeling that I forgot something but then it was good not to feel the pressure of having to look what's going on. A social detox will refresh your mind, give you new inspiration from outside the internet. Try it! 

Eastbourne is a beautiful city & seaside resort in East Sussex on the coast of South England. It was really good to get out of London away from a busy lifestyle and the noise. Big city life is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything but sometimes it's just good to get out. 

We spent the weekend drinking loads of healthy juices, my friend introduced me to juicing and I was quite surprised how good some of the combinations of vegetables taste. Who would've thought that Beetroot, Carrot, Spinach, Celery, Ginger, Kale, Lemon and a couple other veggies taste good together?! I might have to get myself a juicer!  

When going to the beach, it always gives me a feeling of freedom and makes me think about life, I don't know if that's just me but yeah... I was fortunate to have my friend play on her ukulele for me and sing along. I hope you all watched my insta story, her voice is amazing! 
Eastbourne Pier is a must visit when you're there! You can have endless walks along the beach und enjoy the sea breeze. 

I think this was the first time I packed my gym clothes for a weekend getaway unless I go to a spa. We visited David Lloyd Health Club, which is an amazing gym and has everything you wish and more. I was quite impressed that they have a heated outdoor pool, too. The steam room was probably the best part for me. I just love how you feel in the steam room and it's so good for your muscles. 

This wasn't all of it though, we even went hiking! Yes, I went hiking! Lol. We walked all the way to the popular Beachy Head. People go there from all over the world and if you don't want to walk up, there's a bus, too. The view from there is magnificent and you can overlook the whole of Eastbourne and the sea. Pure nature! Just be careful by the cliffs and it's quite windy, so I advise wearing something warm, at least around this time of the year. 

I'll probably go back soon as it is only 1 1/2 hours by train from London and it's a really worth a trip to just get out of the city. 

Love, Drea
