Sea turtles are pretty amazing creatures. They’ve been swimming our oceans for 100 million years or more, and even today they travel incredible distances within their unusually long lifespans.

So we think that an animal that has thrived for such a long time might have a thing or two to teach us about life…

1. Go slowly. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to get where you’re going – it only matters that you keep on swimming.

2. Go with the flow. Follow the waters that make you feel warm, and don’t be too afraid of getting swept into the current!

3. Know when to come out of your shell. Staying home on the beach is safe, but venturing into the sea can be so incredibly rewarding.
