Now back to you.


A New Path to Nurture You

What if we slowed down instead of being influenced by headlines encouraging whirlwind vacations: “24 Hours in… or “Quick Getaways to… Travel headlines bombard us with instructions on how to plan a trip: where to visit, stay, and play. Why not leave behind third-party influences? Who knows you better than you? Ahh, you do – and no offense to the random travel writer- I was one. 😏

One of the best ways to get to know yourself is to be intentional about vacation outcomes. A few ideas:

  • Slow down and appreciate what’s right in front of you – be in the moment versus rushing off to the next thing. Think soulful moments.

  • Monitor your self-talk – is it positive or negative?

  • Practice gratitude for where you are, the people, culture, food, and natural surroundings

Intentions make room for soulful learning while embracing more of who you really are. Shifting into self-awareness creates new behaviors which make a world of difference. Plus, you’ll continue to enjoy the benefits of these new behaviors long after you have put away the suitcases.

We must nurture tolerance, collective wisdom, and democracy – anti-apartheid and political leader – Nelson Mandela.


What Benefits Us All

I genuinely believe we will always have moments of frustration, negativity, and overwhelm. But remember, we can shift our consciousness – from negative scripts to positive ones. Why not create a positive self-talk practice that mimics talking to a best friend? We would never speak to a friend as we speak to ourselves.

So STOP it!

Use loving and kind words without judgment. A more encouraging framework for self-talk. Do you think this new approach would nurture you? Would it also uplift your mental health? Yes or no? Comment below.


Electronics Mess With Your Energy!

Also, instead of being attached to your phone and scrolling all day, why not try a more disciplined approach? Use your phone 2-3 hours a day instead of 24/7.

And did you know the electronic energy a phone emits messes with your magnetic energy field? It interferes with your intuition. Your higher self can’t get messages from Divine Intelligence – it’s terrible. Your intuition is your inner guide. It makes adventures even more joyful. If you let it, it always directs your personality type to the next grandest adventure!


16 Personalities: A Nurturing Shift For Your Type

These seem like simple suggestions. But in each personality type, these simple practices are profound, and often overlooked. Don’t dismiss these words. Take them to heart and apply them. Trust me, your vacations will become blissful and enlightening experiences.
