This post is not so much about places you should travel to, hotels you should stay at, or the clothes you should wear while traveling. This is about the chemical and energetic experience of travel, the proven health benefits, and the fuel added to your fire while breaking out of your day-to-day routine, and experiencing a new physical environment, culture, and way of life – even for a short period. This is me trying to convince YOU to travel more.
We live in a “do the most” kind of world, and in all actuality, that go hard mentality will not benefit most of us. A large part of the United States population is overloaded, overworked, overstressed, and undernourished. It’s not likely that you’ll stick with a mind, body, or soul ritual/habit that adds more stress to your plate. So why not join me in slowing the f**k down and doing less with consistency?
Long before our little ones reach double digits we teach them to search for the one who holds the power to complete them. And there lies the trouble with love. We attach to our distorted idea of love and go insane by definition; a stranger to yourself with the weight of completing another being on your shoulders. Or perhaps you are the oppressor. The one who cries, “Leave me and I’ll die!” to your exhausted partner. I’ve been both.
