Ep. 2.6: The Power of Travel

Travel is commonly viewed as an escape, a luxury, and sometimes even a burden. But to me, traveling is a vital part of being a part of the human race. Motivated by my recent travels to Peru, the topic of travel is fresh in my mind. And it's a topic I'm very passionate about if you can't already tell. 

Maybe you feel the same way, but to help you think about travel a little bit differently or perhaps give you some permission to listen to your own wanderlust whisperings, I’ve come up with a little list I call 'The 3 Gets and 3 Gives of Travel' list - three things you’ll get out of it and three things you get to give, or in other words, three reasons why the world needs you to travel. I think you'll dig it.

What Taking A Break Can Teach You About Self Care

Even when you are quite mindful with your self care, you can still get in a self care rut. You can still max out your systems. You can still lose sight of some negative patterns you've been forming. 

That's why incorporating what I call "big picture" self care things, like travel, dance lessons, turning off your phone for long periods of time, basically things that are separate, but complimentary of your everyday self care practice, are so important. 

Recently I had the opportunity to travel with friends and relax at home with the mister. My two weeks of big picture activities solidified my theory of their importance, and it made space for some very nice revelations. Today, I shall share three of them with you. 

1. step away. like all of the way.

There's something really powerful about getting completely away from your everyday life. About breaking your cycles. 

Lifecoach Tony Robbins does this with his clients by using harsh language and tough love. It shocks the brain and their emotions so much that it can allow them to look at their issues differently. 

I personally don't take that approach, but I agree with the principle. We gotta do something to get away and lovingly shake up our routines so we can reflect back with new eyes.

Self Care In The Air

At this time last week, I had the wonderful privilege of facilitating a workshop about self care to an amazing group of thinkers and creators at the Changemakers Summit in San Francisco. (P.S. I really enjoy presenting at these types of events and spreading the good word, so please reach out if you’d like me to come to you!)
I've been home for a few days from Cali, and I'm still coming down from the whirlwind travels. Though it can throw off your rhythm a bit, traveling is one of my favorite things. Since I LOVE to travel and have done quite a bit of it, I figured that it might be helpful to share some of my self care travel tips.
